The Nitish Kumar-Arvind Kejriwal tieup has kicked up a storm with Bihar facing its crucial assembly polls in September-October, which is shaping up as a do-or-die political battle-both for the NDA and the Grand Alliance of JD-U, RJD and Congress.

Kejriwal, said during his visit to Patna, "People have rejected negative politics, yet the BJP was repeating the mistake of indulging in ‘personalised attack’ in the state, as in the case of Delhi polls, and will have to suffer the same way.”

The Janata Dal (United) JD(U) is hoping that the AAP’s alleged following among 16 lakh migrants from Bihar in Delhi and NCR, would help the grand alliance led by Kumar in the forthcoming polls. A number of these migrant labourers return to Bihar during October-November, the time when polls would be held in the state.
