Attendees at a rally in Bihar’s Begusarai by former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav were quoted by the BBC as saying that they only came to the venue to watch helicopter and are going to vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In the video the crowd can be seen raising pro-Modi slogans and when quizzed by the journalist said that Modi will win in Bihar and praised him for his developmental work.
Out of the five-six people interviewed by the journalist, almost all said that they would vote for Prime Minister Modi and just came at the rally to see the RJD leader’s helicopter.
Similar comic scenes were witnessed at a Digvijaya Singh rally in Bhopal when a youth invited on to the stage by the Congress leader began praising Prime Minister Modi for carrying out surgical strikes to eliminate terrorists.
An angry Digvijaya Singh was then heard scolding the youth and also rhetorically asked whether he had received employment, which the latter seems to have answered in affirmative.
This further infuriated the Congress leaders present there who gestured for him to be thrown out of the rally.
