Tejashwi, who is also the Leader of the Opposition in the outgoing Assembly, is the RJD face on party posters and campaigns. He is attacking Chief Minister Nitish Kumar — once an ally of his jailed father — at his public rallies.
“Though the Janata Dal-United is in power for more than 13 years, the balance is now tilting towards the RJD-led alliance,” remarked a party leader.
Even though RJD has arrayed 30 star campaigners, only Tejashwi is seen campaigning on the ground ahead of the three-phase elections. Party campaign managers say that Tejashwi would end up addressing more than 200 rallies as he is in high demand.
RJD leader Manoj Jha said: “The issues raised by Tejashwi at his public rallies are getting high traction among the people of Bihar and pushed the NDA on the back foot.”
