WrittenBy:Anmol Pritam

With a total of 40 seats, Bihar is one of the crucial Hindi heartland states in the Lok Sabha election. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar have emerged as a twin challenge from the BJP-led NDA front, while the INDIA bloc’s lone soldier is Tejashwi Yadav.  

Yadav, an RJD leader and son of former CM Lalu Yadav, has so far held more than 70 rallies and public meetings in the state. Newslaundry traced his campaign trail across three rallies, where the energy ran high with loud cheers for the youth politician, in contrast with the saffron camp.

So will people’s enthusiasm translate into votes?

In an exclusive conversation with Newslaundry, Yadav spoke about the challenges facing the RJD, an unequal level playing field in the campaign, the election commission, EVMs and the INDIA alliance's Bihar strategy.


There’s no better time to underline the importance of a free press. On World Press Freedom Day 2024, power the independent media.
