RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav had a close shave today when a ceiling fan fell on him while he was addressing an election rally.

The incident took place in Motihari district when the leader was sitting on the dais. In the video, Yadav can be seen telling someone about the ceiling fan, which was clearly wobbly. Seconds later, the fan is seen crashing down on the leader. Yadav, though, hit by the fan is unhurt in the incident. RJD leaders immediately removed the fan from the stage.

Watch the video

Yadav is spearheading his party in the ongoing state Assembly elections in Bihar along with JDU leader Nitish Kumar and the Congress. Yadav has been fanning out across the state mobilizing supporters to vote for the ‘Grand Alliance’ that comprises of the RJD, JDU and the Congress. The alliance is competing against the BJP-led NDA that includes parties such as the LJP, RLSP and HAM(S).

Voters in 39 constituencies went to the polling stations today in the second phase of the elections. 57 per cent polling was recorded in the first phase.

Counting of votes will take place on November 8.
