Speaking on Ram Mandir, the Prime Minister said, ”A grand Ram Temple is being built in Ayodhya. Those in politics who used to ask us a date are now compelled to applaud. It is the identity of BJP and NDA, we do what we promise.”
“People in Darbhanga will get better connectivity due to the airport. In Atmnirbhar Bihar, people will get new opportunities,” he asserted, adding that the NDA government has strived to help people with food grains and safe drinking water at their homes.
Later in the day, Prime Minister Modi will head to Muzaffarpur, and Patna to campaign for the rerun of Nitish Kumar-led NDA government in Bihar.
Meanwhile, the BJP is looking to approach the Election Commission against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s tweet asking people to vote only for the Mahagathbandhan.
Gandhi will also address rallies Valmikinagar in West Champaran and another at Kuseshwar Sthan in Darbhanga today.
This is the second electoral visit of both the leaders to Bihar. Both of them had plunged into campaigning for the three-phased state assembly elections and addressed a series of rallies.
