His visit came shortly after his father, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, cast his vote alongside Rabri Devi and Tejashwi's sister, Rohini Acharya.

Approximately 1.8 crore voters are expected to cast their votes in the eight parliamentary constituencies in Bihar during this final phase. This election is notable for its lack of emotive issues, focusing instead on the "5 Ms": Machli (fish), Muslims, Mangalsutra, Mujra, and Modi.

The campaign, spanning around 75 days over seven phases, was marked by frequent controversies from leaders on both sides. One such controversy began when Tejashwi Yadav shared a video of himself eating fish on a helicopter with his alliance partner Mukesh Sahni, chief of the Vikash-sheel Insaan Party (VIP), who represents the Mallahs (fishermen/boatmen).
