The upcoming Bihar elections is a contest between the BJP and JD-U on one side and the Congress and RJD on the other.

Polling for the 71 Assembly seats of Bihar that started on October 28 is set to enter its third and final phase on Saturday — with 78 constituencies across 19 north districts going to polls.

Despite the Covid pandemic, massive crowds were witnessed at political rallies, especially at that of RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who has been named by the Opposition alliance as its Chief Ministerial candidate.
