2015 Assembly Elections: Bihar all set for change, phenomenal enthusiasm for NDA, says PM Modi

Patna, October 26 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address four rallies on Sunday in poll-bound Bihar.

The rallies will be held in Marhaura, Hajipur, Nalanda and Sona.

The PM today posted on Twitter: "Bihar is all set for change. Phenomenal enthusiasm for NDA. Will address rallies in Marhaura, Hajipur, Nalanda and Sona."

Meanwhile, BJP leader from Bihar, Shahnawaz Hussain shared on social media the rallies that the PM is scheduled to hold in Bihar.

Yesterday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had accused PM Modi of "lowering" the dignity of his post by using words like 'shaitan' (devil) and 'ahankari' (arrogant) for political rivals and questioning their DNA.

"A Prime Minister can campaign for his party. But in Bihar elections, the PM has no control over language and is using words like 'shaitan' and 'ahankari' for rivals and questioned their DNA," Kumar had said addressing an election rally at Lalganj in Vaishali district.

Kumar had added "he (Modi) raised question over my DNA. He called Lalu Prasad a 'shaitan' and me an 'ahankari'. Does speaking in such a language behave a person sitting on the responsible post of a PM?"

Aiming to cash on in the PM's DNA barb at him, Kumar linked it with the pride of Bihar and exhorted the people to avenge it by voting aggressively in favour of grand secular alliance in elections.

Polling for the 243-member Bihar Assembly is taking place in five phases between October 12 and November 5.

The counting of votes is slated for November 8.
