Meanwhile, with the model code of conduct for assembly elections 2020 in place in Bihar, both the ruling and opposition parties are claiming they will win a three-fourth majority in the House.

Bhupendra Yadav, state in-charge of BJP in Bihar, said that more than 3/4 seats will be bagged by the NDA and it fill form the government under the leadership of Nitish Kumar.

BJP chief spokesperson Nikhil Anand said the RJD, which is leading the grand alliance, will lose by a big margin.

Replying to the NDA, Chitranjan Gagan, general secretary and spokesperson of the RJD said: "The people of Bihar knew the ground situation and they will teach the NDA a lesson in these elections. Their leaders have been exposed. They are just making tall promises while the delivery is zero. The people of Bihar are jobless, flood-affected and are migrating since there are no sources of earning a livelihood. Moreover, the NDA has made life difficult for the common people by forcibly implementing policies such as farm bills," added Gagan.
