In the rally's clippings on social media, Kumar can be seen briefly touching PM Modi's feet after he addressed the rally in Nawada district. The gesture occurred as Kumar sat beside PM Modi on a chair on the stage.

The Bihar CM is being trolled on social media over his gaffe predicting that the NDA will win “more than 4,000 seats” in the Lok Sabha election. During his speech at the rally, Kumar can be heard fumbling “char lakh (four lakh) seats, before correcting himself and uttering ”char hazaar se bhi zyada (more than 4,000 seats). He then turned towards PM Modi whom he has been wishing a "400 plus tally" in the election.

Following this, several RJD leaders, including its spokesperson Sarika Paswan, shared the video of Kumar who had criticised the party's president Lalu Prasad, and his wife Rabri Devi for their alleged dismal performance as chief ministers of Bihar. “The chief minister wanted to wish more than four lakh MPs to the PM. Then he probably thought it would be too much and 4,000 would be sufficient,” Paswan wrote in a post on X (formerly known as Twitter) in Hindi.

Kumar, who heads the JD(U), ditched Lalu Yadav's RJD in January this year and formed a new government in Bihar with BJP. This was the fifth time that the Bihar CM changed sides.
