The main opposition of RJD accused Nitish Kumar of vote manipulation ahead of counting day.
The incumbent Nitish Kumar is under fire for allegedly vote manipulations.
The RJD has released a video on Twitter as proof of vote exploitation.
The video shows a vehicle, purportedly with electronic voting machines (EVM) and postal ballots, trying to enter a strong room in Arrah, allegedly without permission. The party, in its post, stated that while one such vehicle was apprehended, the others fled the spot, and went on to say that the Janta Dal (United) Chief will not be able to win the polls even this way.
“Nitish Kumar, you will not win even by doing this. EVM and postal ballot laden vehicles were entering the strong room without permission in Arrah. Our vigilant workers stopped one vehicle and the others ran away. The officials could not give a satisfactory answer,” RJD wrote on Twitter (roughly translated from Hindi).
The votes will be counted on the 10th of November as all the 3 phases of elections are over.
November 10 will decide the fates of over 3700 candidates as they fight for votes that concluded on November 7.
A total of 243 Assembly seats in the state are up for grabs and stakes are quite high.
Incumbent Nitish Kumar faces of multiple rivals namely RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav and LJP’s Chirag Paswan.
While Nitish Kumar has strong backing from the ruling NDA and BJP, the opposition is still strong with RDJ and Congress on the other hand. The Grand alliance or Mahagatbandhan is putting up a strong fight in the face of adversaries that include the Prime Minister.
The current party that was oozing confidence at the the start of campaigning is now sweating buckets at the unforeseen popularity of the opposition party.
The fear of losing ground was palpable during the end of the campaigns as the Chief Minister got unusually aggressive.
Even the all powerful BJP was seen as nervous and brought out big guns to win votes. The Prime Minister being one such gun.
Prime Minister Modi also aggressively campaigned in the favour of Nitish Kumar who joined hands with NDA and BJP in a bid to secure his chair.
Tejashwi Yadav on the other hand is the son of Lalu Yadav. Lalu Yadav was a former CM of Bihar and ruled the state for more than a decade. Young Tejashwi is now a force to reckon with as his rallies brought out record number of crowds.
The results will be out soon and the verdict will set course to the next phase of Bihar.
