Polls for the 243-seat Bihar assembly are being held in three phases, the first two taking place on October 28 and November 3. Voting in the final phase will be held on November 5, while the results will be announced on November 10.
Reacting to Nitish’s sentimental announcement on the final day of campaigning, LJP chief Chirag Paswan posted a sarcastic tweet: “Saheb has said that this is his last election. This time, he has not given account of his last five years of governance and has already told that he will not come to give account next time. Do not vote for those who will not come to seek your blessings again tomorrow. In the next elections, neither saheb will remain nor JD(U). Then who will give the account?”
