The second phase of assembly elections in Bihar, held amid the looming coronavirus threat, saw 53.51 per cent people voting, down from the 56.9 per cent in 2015. Ninety-four seats were up for election, a chunk of them were BJP's strongholds in north Bihar. The key candidates included Tejashwi Yadav - the Chief Ministerial candidate of the opposition alliance of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Left and the Congress -- and his brother Tej Pratap Yadav. By-elections for 54 assembly seats across 10 states were also held today. Hectic campaigning for the third and last phase continued alongside the election, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing two rallies in Forbesganj and Saharsa.
