Taking a dig at the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after declaration of Assembly and Lok Sabha bypolls seats, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and Lalu Yadav's son said, "Now it's turn for Nitishji to give clarifications on the moral corruption he carried out". "The more you pour the fuel of conspiracy on Lalu, the brighter will his lantern burn".

In Jehanabad, RJD's Suday Yadav, son of deceased MLA Mundrika Singh Yadav is ahead of his rival from JD (U) Abhiram Sharma, according to latest trends.

This is the first electoral battle in the state since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, head of JD (U), broke out the alliance with the RJD and the Indian National Congress and joined the NDA Alliance a year ago.

In a matter of hours, Tejashwi became the leader of the opposition from the deputy chief minister. And on Wednesday, party workers in Patna reiterated Lalu's announcement by projecting him as the next chief minister as they hailed his leadership at victory rallies. Both are considered traditional RJD supporters.
