New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: As voting began for the second phase of Bihar Assembly Elections 2020, the election campaigning for the third phase picked up pace today. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed two rallies in Sarsa and Araria, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar reached Madhubani's Harlakhi to woo the voters for the third phase of polls, scheduled to take place on November 7.

During his public address in favour of JD-(U) candidate Sudhanshu Shekhar, Nitish Kumar faced the wrath of the people, where few of them threw onions and potatoes on the incumbent chief minister, which he narrowly escaped. In a video posted by news agency ANI, Nitish can be seen addressing the people on the stage and suddenly onions and potatoes started flying with anti-JD (U) chants.

Later in the video, Nitish Kumar can be seen surrounded by his security guards, after which the chief minister stopped his security from covering him and said, 'let them throw, let them throw more', 'don't pay attention to these miscreants' and continued his speech.
