Allies Rahul Gandhi and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav finally shared a stage in Bihar on Friday, well into the national elections and just before the fourth round of voting.
Tejashwi Yadav, who had skipped several rallies of the Congress president over the past few weeks, more than made up with his ringing endorsement of Rahul Gandhi for the post of Prime Minister.
Unlike the Uttar Pradesh opposition club of Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, Tejashwi Yadav appealed to a crowd at Samastipur to vote for Rahul Gandhi as their prime minister.
“Please make Rahul ji Prime Minister as not only does he talk about the poor, he also doesn’t have any problem meeting them, unlike our Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has time to attend Priyanka Chopra’s reception but can’t visit a poor man’s home,” said son of Lalu Yadav, who has been jailed RJD chief.
Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi reached late to Samastipur as his plane had developed a snag and had to return to Delhi in the morning.
The Congress chief even tweeted an apology along with a video taken by someone on the small plane. Samastipur will vote on Monday for the national election.
