Tejashwi Yadav, whose blockbuster rallies have been the talk of the Bihar campaign, says this election “will surprise everyone”. But the 31-year-old Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader, the opposition’s chief ministerial candidate, also says he has nothing to lose as he tours Bihar to cover as much ground as he can, often addressing a dozen meetings a day. “I have nothing to lose. I am happy I fought on good issues. I have age on my side. I will try hard, work more,” Tejashwi Yadav tells NDTV, asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign – or any other factor – makes him nervous ahead of the November 10 Bihar results. Besides, he says, even PM Modi has been forced to notice him. “PM recently said that if something comes in a good packaging, looks good, but one regrets after consuming it… he is actually accepting that everything is good,” he said.
