Chirag Paswan, on the day of the third phase of polling, said that he has worked on the ground and have seen the trend that Nitish Kumar will not become the CM again.

"I have worked on the ground, working hard for the party all alone. One thing is clear, both the phases have confirmed this thing and the third phase will put a final stamp on it, that Nitish Kumar will never become the Chief Minister again", Chirag Paswan said as quoted by ANI.

Paswan also said that the next government in the state will be a development-minded government. He also appealed to the people to come out in large numbers and exercise their right to vote and make the next five years better than next 15 years.

I want work to be done as per the vision document prepared by suggestions of four lakh Biharis," Chirag Paswan said as quoted by news agency ANI.
