Bihar election 2020 live updates: With less than five days left for Bihar to enter the first phase of Assembly elections 2020, the political temperature in the state is set to soar substantially. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a stinging attack on the RJD-led opposition, blaming the "anarchy and bad governance of the 1990s" for most of the ills that plagued the state even now.
Rahul Gandhi is also slated to launch his campaign in Bihar elections. He will address two rallies Friday -- at Hisua in Nawada and Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur district. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, the chief ministerial face of the Mahagathbandhan, is likely to join Gandhi at Hisua.
Union Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman released BJP's manifesto for the Bihar polls on Thursday. It promised among other things free coronavirus vaccine for every person in the state.
