As sparks flew even in the dying minutes of the campaign that spanned several weeks ahead of the fifth and final phase of voting for 57 seats tomorrow, Bihar Chief Minister again raked up Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'DNA' remark and asked people to give a fitting reply to the barb by voting in favour of the Grand Secular Alliance. Counting of votes will be taken up on November 8.
     
RJD chief Lalu Prasad also reacted sharply to PM Modi's barb at him and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar that they have merely six days to rejoice power and said PM Modi will himself learn the 'bitter lesson' in that period that would trigger strong reaction among BJP's allies in NDA.
      
Pooh poohing various survey reports projecting that poll results will be too close to call, BJP leader and Union Minister Ananth Kumar claimed the NDA will get a decisive mandate with a two-third majority.
      
"Chah dino mein PM ko chhati ka dudh yada kara dengi janata"(Public will teach a bitter lesson to PM in six days), Prasad told reporters. Later, addressing a public meeting at Bahadurpur in Darbhanga, Prasad said, "PM Modi might be forced to quit after results of Bihar poll would come on November 8."
     
Nitish took on PM Modi again over his DNA barb on the last day of the poll campaign. "The Prime Minister said that my DNA is wrong. Does it behove the Prime Minister or the dignity attached with the post ? If my DNA is wrong, then why you (people) elected me the Chief Minister twice ?", he said.
