Congress least interested in Bihar elections

Bihar does not figure on the agenda of Rahul Gandhi’s “spin doctors” despite the poll-bound state being the next battle ground between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his detractors.
The Congress is optimistic that its seats will increase due to the pre-poll alliance with the Janata Parivar, NCP and others. The Bihar polls may be a “do or die” battle for the BJP and the Janata Parivar for different reasons, but not for the Congress. This is because it has been a “neglected” state for the party since the last 25 years.

Manjhi took a u-turn on his earlier announcement to renounce politics if the rally turn out at his Patna show was less than five lakhs.

Talking to media persons at his Gaya residence on Friday morning, the ex CM said that his earlier statement on renouncing politics should not be taken literally and though the rally response was below his expectations and the bench mark set by him, it was enough to propel him in Bihar politics and as such the question of taking Sanyas simply did not arise.
