Prime Minister Narendra Modi cancelled his election rallies in Buxar, Hajipur, and Paliganj, a day before he was to address them on the day the second phase of polling  starts.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has, however, denied any rally was scheduled for October 16. Sources said, the third phase of polling was on October 28 and addressing election rallies early did not make any sense.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) wasted no time to hit out at the BJP saying, “This is a repeat of Delhi.”

On 16 October, voters will seal the fate of 456 candidates in 32 Assembly segments spread over six Naxal-hit districts— Kaimur, Rohtas, Arwal, Jehanabad, Aurangabad and Gaya—thereby posing a big challenge to the security forces.

A total of 86.13 lakh voters are likely to decide the fate of 456 candidates, including 32 women candidates.
