Mahagathbandhan's chief ministerial candidate Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday addressed a poll rally before a massive crowd in Bihar's Paliganj. Meanwhile, Twitter was furious as the people neither followed social distancing nor were wearing masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yadav tweeted the video and wrote in Hindi, "The youth is now not only excited but also conscious. This enthusiasm, passion, love and support of the youth shows that it needs development, education, health, employment, jobs and a golden future." "Addressed a poll rally with immense public support in favour of Sandeep Sourav, young candidate of Mahagathbandha in Paliganj. Jai Hind, Jai Bihar," he added.

"Completely forgot about COVID-19 shame," a Twitter user wrote. "RIP COVID," said another Twitter user.

Here are a few Twitter reactions:

Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying that if he is inexperienced as a leader then why is the world's largest party using its full force against him.

"If I am inexperienced then why are you (BJP) deploying full force against me? This proves that they are desperate. Is Nitish Kumar's face not working? BJP is the largest party in the world but they don't have any CM candidate," said Yadav while speaking to the reporters.

"They have used full force against me and I am alone. They call me inexperienced but I have been an MLA, Leader of Opposition and also held deputy CM's post. My five years of experience is equivalent to 50 years of experience," he added.

The RJD leader also said the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's presence in Bihar on Tuesday will not be a challenge for him.

"He is not a challenge. They are so desperate and in despair, they have understood that they will not form the government again," he added.

Yadav scion also mocked BJP saying that the world's largest party does not have a chief ministerial candidate and people have lost faith in Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Bihar will go to polls in three phases: October 28, November 3 and November 7 for its 243 Assembly seats. The results will be declared on November 10.
