BJP demands deployment of Special Observer in Nalanda

Nalanda, which is a home turf of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, will prove to be a litmus test for the JDU-RJD alliance as the dominant castes in the region— Kurmis and Yadav have for long been rivals here.
Whether they joins hands in the name of larger OBC unity or not will be seen in Nalanda, which will reflect the voting pattern for the Mahagathbandhan.
With a growing perception that the NDA is lagging behind, the BJP-led alliance is banking on the third phase of polling on October 28 in 50 Assembly constituencies in six districts.
