New Delhi: A video clip showing Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar visiting a tantrik to seek his blessings was released by the BJP on Saturday.

The video clip was released on social media by senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and union Minister Giriraj Singh to embarrass Nitish Kumar, the chief ministerial candidate of the grand alliance of JD-U, RJD and Congress ahead of the October 28 polls in the ongoing five-phase elections.


At a time when the political temperature is hotting up ahead of the third phase of the Bihar assembly polls, the BJP leader played a video card against Nitish Kumar, the star campaigner of the grand alliance, which is giving a tough time to the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.

In Singh’s video, the tantrik is seen raising slogans in favour of Nitish Kumar and telling him not to be worried. He is also seen raising slogans against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, once the arch rival of Nitish Kumar but now his main political ally in the Bihar polls.

Reacting to the video, Lalu Prasad, the former Bihar chief minister, told media here that he was a bigger tantrik than anyone. “I don’t care for such tantrik, I am bigger tantrik than any one.”

Neither Nitish Kumar nor any leader of his party was willing to react to the video which has reportedly gone viral on social media.

A senior JD-U leader, on condition of anonymity, told IANS here that the video has once again exposed the BJP’s desperation with reports coming that the grand alliance is winning the polls under the leadership of Nitish Kumar.

However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
