'Tejashwi has no baggage'

'Tejashwi has no baggage'

Senior Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil tells The Indian Express his assessment of Phase 1 voting, dismisses LJP, AIMIM threat to Grand Alliance votes, explains why the party is raising Munger violence issue emphatically in Delhi and Patna, and believes Congress will do well despite getting tough seats. When asked about his assessment of the first phase of voting, Gohil said, "The people of Bihar are very angry with the JD(U) and BJP. They want change at any cost. People have decided that the grand alliance will fulfil their hopes and aspirations. So, there has been positive voting. Those angry with the JD(U) and the BJP, a large section among them have not come out to vote…their voters… That is why the voting percentage has not gone up."
