Speaking to IANS, a Patna-based political expert said that singers and poets are generally critical about the ruling government. “It is perhaps for the first time that a political party — the BJP — which claims to be largest in the world, has replied to a singer. Here the singer has nothing to lose”, stated Yadav.
The election in Bihar will be held in the state in three phases from October 28 to November 7 and the counting of votes will take place on October 10.
