Yadav also stated that his party will continue to organise event in different districts of the state to address the issues of people.

"We have organised programmes in Kishanganj, Katihar and Araria. We will address people who are sulking over NRC. We will encourage them, tell them about the agenda of this Govt," Tejashwi said.
