Bihar will have polls for the maximum number of seats- 2 and it would be interesting to see who will win the election battle in a new political scenario in the state as BJP-led NDA is out of power and Mahagathbandhan-headed by Nitish Kumar is in power. Both sides would try to show their strength assuming it as a semi-final before the high-octane 2024 General elections.
