PM Narendra Modi addressing the crowd at Bhagalpur, Bihar on 1 September.ANI

Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a lengthy speech at Bhagalpur in Bihar as he concluded his Parivartan Rally on Tuesday.

However, several leaders of the Opposition parties criticised Modi's speech and asserted that his words lacked confidence.

Mocking Modi's speech at Bhagalpur, Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar said, "Hearing Modiji speak in public, I increasingly wonder if he would ever be able to improve his understanding and use of facts, figures."

The rally at Bhagalpur saw a massive crowd just like the "Swabhiman Rally" suggesting a very close contest in the Bihar Assemble Elections.

Both BJP and the opposition parties are not leaving any chance to unleash criticisms on each other.

Nitish Kumar further added, "Modiji ko Bihar ki yaad bhi aati hai, iss par kam se kam unhone kuch bola. Jo bola uss menin tathya toh kuch nehi tha par sunai para- mein, mein keval mein (Atleast, Modi said something about his remembering Bihar. Though, there were no facts in his statement as he kept saying- me, me and only me).

While, Modi called the "Swabhiman Rally" as "tilanjali sabha" JD(U) leader, KC Tyagi called "parivartan Rally" as shradhanjali sabha". "Agar humari sabha tilaanjali sabha thi, to ye NDA ki shradhaanjali sabha thi," said Tyagi.

Congress leader, PC Chacko targeted Modi saying, "Has any development happened after people voted Modi? He is denigrating the position of PM in every Bihar visit".

Ajay Alok of JD(U) criticised Modi's language at the rally. "Aaj phir gairmaryadik shabdon ka prayog kia hai unhone (He has again used abusive words)".

JD(U) leader, Ali Anwar said, "Inka confidence hill gaya hai, is liye voh andaaz nahi hai, vo tevar nahi hain,ye bechain hain (His confidence has shaken. That is why his earlier charisma and attitude is not visible now. He has become restless)".

He also said, "Jaisi rally (Swabhimaan rally) hui, waisi rally karne ke liye Pradhanmantri ji ko dusra janam lena padega: Ali Anwar (The PM will have to take another birth to conduct a rally like Swabhiman Rally)".

Manoj Jha from RJD said, "I saw unmistakable signs of the possible defeat on his face (PM), that was a good sight for us."
