After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has now hit the campaign trail. Addressing a rally in Pashchim Champaran, Gandhi accused PM Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of not doing enough for the development of the state. "Bihar doesn't have adequate jobs, facilities, and its not your fault. This is the fault of your chief minister and prime minister." Earlier in separate rallies in Darbangha and Muzzafarpur, PM Modi invoked Ayodhya's Ram Temple and targeted Mahagatbandhan's 'jungle raaj'. Polling is underway in 71 assembly constituencies of Bihar in the first phase of three-phase elections amid tight security and COVID-19 guidelines in place.
