Patna: BJP leader and MP Giriraj Singh said on Tuesday that whitewash for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was inevitable in the Assembly Elections.

He also said that the BJP was working day and night to spread the agenda of development.

“Nitish and Lalu are feeling the heat now and will face the real music in coming rounds,” the former Bihar minister added.

And on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's upcoming three public meetings in Bihar (two rallies in West Champaran district and one in Sitamarhi) on October 26, two days before the third phase of Assembly elections, Singh said, “Any help is great help, nothing can be better than this one.”

Congress in alliance with JD(U) and RJD is contesting on 41 seats in the state while its other partners are fighting in 101 seats each.

On the other hand, Jitan Ram Manjhi's HAM, Ram Vilas Paswan's Lok Janshakti party (LJP) and Union minister Upendra Kushwaha's Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) have joined hands with BJP as part of the National Democratic Alliance.

Eighty-one constituencies have gone to polls so far in two phases and 162 will go in the next three remaining phases.

The counting of votes is scheduled for November 08.
