Humbled and grateful to receive rousing reception across the Bihar: Tejashwi

Patna, October 20
Roughly a week to go before the state elections in Bihar, footfalls have increased exponentially at opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav's election meetings, giving a go-by to coronavirus safety norms. Party leaders say time and place make no difference to the attendance -- meetings held early in the morning or late in the afternoon are as crowded as the ones at "prime time".  His party said the size of the crowds have been over 7, 000 to 8, 000 and at places more than 15, 000.

Enthused, Mr Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal has stepped up the numbers to ensure that the party's message reaches as many people as possible.

On Wednesday, the 31-year-old Chief Ministerial candidate of the Grand Alliance -- the RJD, Congress and the Left parties -- will be addressing no less than 12 meetings.

Tejashwi Yadav has tweeted, saying he felt "humbled" by the crowds:

This sea of people is standing for change, development, employment and jobs in Bihar. The incompetent NDA govt of 15 years have ruined Bihar. Humbled and grateful to receive rousing reception across the Bihar. Such an electrifying crowd in Goh assembly, Aurangabad.
