“Both Rahul Gandhi and Tejashwi Yadav were sitting in Delhi during the Covid-19 pandemic as they were scared of coronavirus. And now they ask what happened in Bihar during Corona. Only CM Nitish Kumar and BJP workers took care of Bihar public during pandemic,” Nadda added.

Tejashwi is the chief ministerial candidate of the Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance), which has RJD and four other parties as its contituents. He is pitted against Nitish Kumar, the leader of ruling Janata Dal (United), who is the chief ministerial face of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
