Earlier former Maharashtra chief minister and BJP Bihar in-charge Devendra Fadnavis said, "Prime Minister Modi will hold 12 election rallies in Bihar for NDA (National Democratic Alliance) candidates. On October 23, he will hold rallies in Sasaram, Gaya and Bhagalpur. On October 28, the Prime Minister will hold rallies in Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur and Patna. On November 3, he will hold rallies in Chhapra, East Champaran and Samastipur and later in West Champaran, Saharsa and Araria."

Tight security arrangements have been made for PM Narandra Modi’s election rallies at Gaya, Sasaram and Bhagalpur on Friday. It will be perhaps the first physical rally of the PM in the country since the enforcement of Covid-induced lockdown on March 23.

The BJP has already fielded its star line up for the Bihar polls with union minister Rajnath Singh, BJP president JP Nadda and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath addressing a number of public rallies.

Union Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman released the party’s manifesto on Thursday, including the promise of the free vaccines for residents of the state.
