The ''Mahagathbandhan'' will get two-thirds majority in the Bihar polls, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav was quoted as saying by news agency Press Trust of India. The RJD leader, who has promised 10 lakh government jobs if voted to power, also said he will bring a legislation in the first assembly session to nullify the "anti-farmer" laws brought by the Centre.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the face of the ruling aliance with BJP, is up against the opposition ''Mahagathbandhan,'' comprising the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Congress and Left parties.
He is also facing challenge from former ally, the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), whose chief, Chirag Paswan, who has made it clear that his sole agenda is to oust Nitish Kumar and form a government with the BJP.
The three-phase polls begin tomorrow.
