Time to fight COVID-19, not elections, Kishor tells Nitish

    Kishor, once a confidant of the JD(U) president before he turned a critic and was expelled from the party, joins leaders like LJP chief Chirag Paswan and RJD's Tejashwi Yadav in suggesting that the Bihar assembly polls should be deferred due to the pandemic.

    Polls in Bihar are due in October-November but the Election Commission has so far not made any official announcement about its schedule.

    The BJP and the JD(U) have been holding organisational meetings and said that they are ready for the elections.
