Watch: Rabri Devi, Tejashwi Yadav clang utensils to protest against Amit Shah's rally
While the RJD observed ‘Garib Adhikaar Diwas‘ by beating utensils, the Congress took to posters to urge citizens to mark “Shraddhanjali Diwas‘. The posters read ‘virtual se actual muddon ka encounter‘.
Senior RJD leaders Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav along with Rabri Devi clanged utensils as a gesture of protest.
The ruling Janata Dal (United), which is in alliance with the saffron party, opposed the RJD protest by clapping their hands.
Speaking to news agency ANI, a JD(U) leader said: “People of Bihar have come to know about 15 years of misrule. The citizens here know very well about the RJD. Everyone is clapping their hands while they’re beating the utensils. That’s all they know, they haven’t done anything to respect anyone till date.”
Amit Shah's virtual rally, which can be accessed via YouTube, Facebook and Namo application, has been touted as an official launch of the electoral process in Bihar. The elections in the state are scheduled in October-November this year.
In Bihar, BJP’s organisational structure includes 45 organisational districts, 1,100 mandals, 9,000 shakti kendras and 72,000 booths.
