Bihar, October 18
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi held joint election campaign on Sunday and launched a blistering attack on rival Lalu Prasad highlighting the crime situation and lack of development during his RJD rule in the past.
Reeling out comparative data during 15 years under the RJD and an equal period under the NDA now, the two leaders sought another chance from voters to speed up developent work in the state in the next five years.
The two started the day with a public meeting at Buxar, where the BJP has fielded Parshuram Chaturvedi as its candidate. He is pitted against sitting MLA Sanjay Kumar Tiwari of the Congress.
After launching a separate campaign since beginning of this week, Kumar and Sushil Modi moved together on Sunday and sought support for the BJP as well as JD-U nominees on four seats of Buxar, Dumraon, Tarari and Jagdishpur.
In the Buxar rally, former state police chief and JD(U) leader Gupteshwar Pandey was not present. But, Chaturvedi said he enjoyed his support and blessings.
Chaturvedi himself had taken premature retirement as Assistant Sub-Inspector in the Bihar Police in 2003 and joined politics. — PTI
