BIHAR: Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Union Minister of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Giriraj Singh is confident of winning all 40 seats in Bihar.

Speaking to reporters, the Minister says, "I am 200% confident that we will win 40 seats in Bihar 200%. This tukde tukde, appeasement and Mughal mindset gang can never do the welfare of Bihar and the country. All 40/40 seats of the state will be in the name of PM Modi."

Giriraj Singh also accused the RJD-Congress alliance of indulging in appeasement politics, alleging that the Congress had even objected to action against terror by the Modi government.

"If there is an action on terrorist...the Congress party, the opposition parties attack the Modi government" Giriraj Singh said.

"In this Navratri, those who show that I am eating fish...they are the people of Mughal culture, people who do appeasement politics, call themselves secular. I say that the nation has always been secular..." he added.

Taking a jibe at former prime minister Indira Gandhi, the Union Minister says, "Indira Gandhi in the name of appeasement... tried to destroy Sanatan's secularism... Tried to defame sanatan."
