    Want jungle raj or sushasan? Modi asks crowd at Bhagalpur rally

    Addressing poll rallies in Bihar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the voters whether they wanted 'jungle raj' (lawlessness) or 'sushasan' (good governance) in the state. During his third rally on Friday in Bhagalpur, he continued his attack on the opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal.

    "Bihar deserves investment. Who will ensure this? Those who turned Bihar into 'jungle raj' or those who are delivering good governance in Bihar and are dedicated to the state's development? Bihar deserves better law and order. Who will ensure that? Those who patronised goons or those who showered batons on them?

    "Bihar also deserves better education system. Can it be ensured by those who are not even aware of value of education or by those who are working 24/7 to bring IITs and AIIMS to the state?"
