Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, 5 November, wrote a letter to the people of Bihar, requesting them to vote for the Nitish Kumar-led government in the state.

“I need Nitish Kumar's government, so development doesn't stall," he wrote in the letter, shared on Twitter.

In the four-page letter, PM Modi said that the people of Bihar are not voting on the issues of caste but on development.

“Votes are being cast not on false promises but for strong resolves/intentions, not for bad governance but for better governance. Not for corruption, but for honesty. Not for opportunism, but for self-dependence.”

“I am convinced of Bihar’s development,” PM Modi added.

Talking about NDA government in Bihar, PM Modi said: “With the power of the double engine government, Bihar will reach new heights of development in this decade.”

Focussing on the development aspect of the state, PM said that only NDA can provide better infrastructure.

“NDA’s first priority is to expedite connectivity projects – work on better airports, waterports, roads is being done,” PM Modi stated in the letter.

He further said that with better connectivity, there will be further improvements in ‘ease of living.’

The letter was put up minutes before the election campaigning came to an end.

Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar, on Thursday, had said that the ongoing state Assembly polls would be his last election. He was addressing an election rally in Purnia, Bihar.

“This is my last election,” said Kumar, as per news agency ANI.
