Will be grateful if my request meets your positive consideration.”

While addressing the people during the rally, PM Modi said, “There is a group of people that doesn’t want you to chant ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ or ‘Jai Shri Ram.’ All of them have now come together and are asking for votes from the people of Bihar. There’s a need to give a befitting answer to such people in Bihar Elections.”
