Bengaluru, Apr 02: In an interesting political development on the first day of April, Tej Pratap Yadav launched a political front 'Lalu Rabri Morcha' and even put forth some demands. He also hinted that if his demands were not met then he would field candidates from 20 seats in Bihar.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited three states-- Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. PM Modi addressed a public meeting in Wardha to campaign for the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance candidates in Vidarbha region. In Wardha, PM Modi targeted NCP chief Sharad Pawar, saying there was infighting in his party, which was slipping from his control.

At an election meeting in Hyderabad, PM Modi warned people that if the opposition parties come to power, they would also cancel the government's zero tax benefit. "You all need to be careful. If there's the slightest slip on April 11, if the opposition (mahamilavat) gets any chance, they will revoke our "zero tax" measure, loot everything," said Modi.

Meanwhile, BJP candidates in Bihar, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu were seen campaigning on Monday.
