In Purulia, a BJP worker was murdered. I want to assure each West Bengal BJP worker and people of the state that justice will be done. Strict action will be taken against those people who are responsible

Bihar politician and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav today reiterated his attack on PM Narendra Modi of being a "fake backward" person, ahead of the Prime Minister's visit to Bihar. "PM Narendra Modi is coming to Bihar today. He will say he's the son of extreme backward. He will make a failed attempt to polarise. Bihar expects lies and 'jumlas' from him. Hope that the PM would give an account of his promises from 2014, such as special status to Bihar, special package, and free education and medicines," Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, adding #BiharRejectsModi
