The photos also evoked a bunch of reactions online and also from political strategist Prashant Kishor. For the unversed, Kishore is a frequent critic of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

"Reminiscent of the condition of roads in Bihar in the Jungle Raj of the 90s, this is National Highway 227 (L) of Madhubani district of Bihar. Recently, Nitish Kumar Ji was speaking to the people of the road construction department at an event that they should tell everyone about the good condition of roads in Bihar," he tweeted in Hindi.

Apart from Kishore, Tejashwi Yadav, the leader of the Opposition party also slammed the existing government of the state over the pathetic condition of the highway.

As per a report in Dainik Bhaskar, back in 2015, the condition of the road was completely tumbledown. In order to repair the road, tenders have been changed thrice. However, all contractors are now missing, and have left the work unfinished.
