Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that leaders of the grand alliance in Bihar comprising the Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Congress were playing the “politics of opportunism”.

“The same people who talk about Jayaprakash Narayan have sided with the Congress, which arrested him (during Emergency). They are practising the politics of opportunism,” the prime minister said while addressing the first of his four scheduled rallies in Bihar’s Munger district on Thursday.


He will address three more rallies in Begusarai, Samastipur and Nawada districts later.

“The Congress had turned the country into a jail (during Emergency). JP Narayan had the courage to even fight death. He sacrificed his life for the country. He inspired a whole new generation of youth in the country,” Modi said.

Modi said the Bihar elections were a fight between ‘jungle raj’ and ‘vikas raj’ and that the people would vote for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to stop the return of ‘jungle raj’ in the state.

“For the first time, the Bihar elections will be fought on the issues of development and youth. The youth of Bihar will change the state’s destiny. We will change the fortune of Bihar,” he added.

Modi said the biggest manifestation of the ‘jungle raj’ was the high rate of crime, fear and kidnappings. “Do you want kidnappings to return and do you want the ‘jungle raj’ to return to the state,” he asked.

He targeted Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad, saying that “for the last 25 years, the big brother and the younger brother have ruled and ruined Bihar”.

“Do you want them to come to power again? They didn’t provide electricity as promised and yet they come asking for votes,” the prime minister said.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

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.
