Prime Minister Modi, who was addressing a rally in Munger, laid emphasis on his development agenda in Bihar. "For the first time, the Bihar polls are based on the idea of development and progress for the youth," he said while asserting that the youth of Bihar will make the right decision this time.

Prime Minister Modi also hit out at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, saying the former Bihar chief minister has insulted the Yadav community.

"The elections come and go, but it is the people that stay with you. Lalu Prasad Yadav has insulted the Yadav community by commenting about what they eat. In this election, there is 'jungle raj' on one side and 'vikas raj' on the other," Prime Minister Modi said.

"No one wants 'jungle raj' again. There have been around 4,000 incidents of kidnapping in Bihar under the 'jungle raj'," he added.

Continuing his tirade against the grand alliance, Prime Minister Modi told the people of Bihar that their growing support for him would disturb the sleep of those perpetrating the 'jungle raj' in the state.

Prime Minister Modi also invoked Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Narayan to target the grand alliance and held the Congress Party responsible for his death.

"JP Narayan ji died on October 8, 1979, and it was the Congress which had sent him to jail. That's where he got sick, which led to his death. Those who used to praise JP are now with the Congress, the same party that jailed their leader. What kind of politics is this?" he asked.

PM Modi dubbed the grand alliance of the JD(U), RJD and Congress as 'mahaswarthbandhan' (an alliance of those having selfish interests).
