Modi Holds First of Four Rallies at Munger
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak at four rallies in Bihar today, in the run-up to the state assembly elections. Addressing the first rally in Munger, Modi attacked the Nitish Kumar government and his allies, Lalu Prasad Yadav and the Congress party.
Proclaiming that the youth would change the state’s destiny, Modi urged the people to end the ‘Jungle Raj’ and choose development instead.
Modi was highly critical of the lack of infrastructure, particularly the lack of electricity, and the rampant lawlessness in the state.
There have been 4000 incidents of kidnapping in Bihar under the ‘Jungle Raj;’ kidnapping was the biggest industry under this Jungle Raj.

Meanwhile, Nitish Kumar has questioned Modi’s silence on the Dadri mob-lynching incident.
