Ahead of the last phase of the Bihar Assembly elections, the campaigning for which came to an end today, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar created a flutter, saying these were his “last elections”.

Not with Yogi on CAA

NDA partners BJP and JD-U appear divided on the contentious new citizenship law, with Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath asserting illegal immigrants ‘will be thrown out of the country’ and Nitish calling such talk ‘faltu baat’.

Addressing a rally at Dhamdaha in Purnia district, the JD(U) chief made an emotional appeal to people, saying: “Today is the last day of electioneering. Polling will take place day after tomorrow. This is my last election.” While his opponents termed it an “admission of defeat”, the BJP said it was his personal view.

He can’t handle it

Nitish Kumar has realised he cannot handle Bihar. Today, he has understood the ground reality and decided to quit.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in an open letter, said the Nitish Kumar-led government would ensure that there were no obstructions in the state’s development. “I have full faith that the power of ‘double engine’ will take Bihar to new heights in this decade,” he said. BJP president JP Nadda, while addressing a rally, cited US elections to tell how PM Modi’s “right decision at the right time saved India from the onslaught of Covid”.
