Manoj Jha On Bihar CM Nitish Kumar

Jha also claimed that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has become "helpless" upon his latest alignment with the BJP.

"As Tejashwi Yadav also says, we have all respect for Nitish Kumar but a few things like the people around him, bureaucrats, a few political leaders, and the image that we have seen, him with a symbol of Lotus, Bihar won't accept that helplessness," Jha said.

Meanwhile, former Bihar Deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday dismissed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ongoing spiritual activity in Kanniyakumari as mere "photo shoots."

"Modi ji isn't doing any meditation, only photo shoots are happening. Once the photo shoot ends, they will come back," Yadav said.

Prime Minister Modi is currently in Kanniyakumari, engaged in meditation at the Dhyan Mandapam, the very site where revered Hindu philosopher Swami Vivekananda is believed to have had a divine vision about 'Bharat Mata'. His meditation is slated to continue till today.

Tejashwi Yadav's Political Appeal

Tejashwi Yadav also issued a political appeal, urging people to vote against those seeking to undermine constitutional principles, reservations, and democracy.

"I will tell people to step out of their homes, and those who want to abolish the constitution, reservations, and democracy, those whose actions have increased unemployment, inflation, and poverty, I appeal to my people to vote against them," Yadav said.

Yadav expressed confidence in Bihar's electoral landscape, stating, "We have said it before that Bihar will deliver a surprising result, and we will surpass 300 seats."
