Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi voted early this morning. "After the elections, we will talk to the Election Commission to hold elections in March or October. It gets difficult for the voters to step out in simmering heat to cast their votes," he said. Earlier this morning, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar shared a similar suggestion for the election body. "Elections should not be held over such a long duration. There was a long gap between each phase of voting. I will write to leaders of all parties to build a consensus on this," he had said after casting his vote. In Bihar, eight seats are polling today.
