Muzaffarpur (Bihar) [India], May 20 (ANI): Congress candidate for the Muzaffarpur parliamentary constituency, Ajay Nishad, appealed to the voters, saying that it is necessary to vote for the development of the country.

"Voting is necessary for the development of the country. The Election Commission also says, 'Pehle matdaan phir jal paan'. I appeal to everyone with a folded hand to vote for the sake of the nation," said Ajay Nishad.

"Summer and heat do not matter, as voting is the most important work. The Election Commission must take care that the vote turnout does not fall in any case," he stated further.

He highlighted that it is necessary to take appropriate steps so that people can easily cast votes. Giving the example of his home state, Bihar, he said that in Bihar, there is unemployment. People have migrated to other places for jobs. Some steps must be taken to ensure that the person can vote from wherever he/she stays or the person must be brought back to vote.

Notably, five constituencies in Bihar are undergoing polls during the fifth phase of Lok Sabha polls on May 20: Sitamarhi, Madhubani, Muzaffarpur, Saran and Hajipur.

Muzaffarpur parliamentary constituency, located in North Bihar, is witnessing a face-off between Ajay Nishad of the Congress and Raj Bhushan Choudhary Nishad, representing the BJP.

Two-time MP from Muzaffarpur, Ajay Nishad, resigned from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and joined the Congress on April 2.

Ajay Nishad, son of veteran leader late Captain Jai Narain Prasad Nishad won this seat twice from BJP in 2014 and 2019 and is contesting on a Congress ticket. BJP did not give him the ticket this time around. Dr Raj Bhushan Choudhary Nishad, who had fought against Nishad from Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) in 2019, is a candidate from BJP this time.

The Congress is contesting the elections in Bihar in alliance with the RJD and other smaller parties. The result of the Lok Sabha polls will be declared on June 4. (ANI)
