Prime Minister Narendra Modi held three back-to-back rallies in Bihar on Friday to provide momentum to the NDA’s campaign for the upcoming Assembly elections in the state. PM Modi, who hit the election campaign trail for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak, addressed rallies in Sasaram, Gaya and Bhagalpur, where polling is scheduled to be held in the first phase on October 28. Staying true to his style, the prime minister commenced his speeches in the local dialects Bhojpuri, Magahi and Angika at the three venues respectively. While cornering the Opposition over the national issue of Article 370, PM Modi, who shared the stage with CM Nitish Kumar, also reminded people of the 15-year misrule under the Rashtriya Janata Dal’s regime. He also made it a point to mention the Galwan Valley clash between the Indian and Chinese troops while lauding the supreme sacrifice by the jawans from Bihar. “The sons of Bihar laid down their lives for the tricolour but did not let Mother India bow her head,” the prime minister said.
