The BJP, and poll strategist Prashant Kishor have taken several potshots at Bihar State Chief Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav in recent days.
India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has criticized Bihar Deputy State Chief Tejashwi Yadav after he was seen lashing out at protestors in his assembly constituency of Raghopur during a recent visit.
Sharing the video on Twitter, BJP national spokesman Shehzad Poonawala blasted the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader for misbehaving with the public.

"Look at the arrogance & entitlement of this dynast! Instead of ensuring Vikas (development) in his constituency Raghopur which is suffering; Tejaswi Yadav gets angry at them & treats them with disdain! When youth demand jobs- they get lathis (batons)...when janta (the public) demands roads, they get snubbed," Poonawala tweeted.

Political strategist and former Janata Dal (United) vice-president Prashant Kishor was also scathing in his criticism of Yadav.

"After the CM of Bihar, now it is the turn of his deputy. Angry people lay down on the roads in front of his convoy because the road was not built in his area, Raghopur, for the last 34 years! Leave aside the matter of work, Bhai Saheb (Tejashwi) did not even consider it necessary to get off the car and meet the people," Kishor tweeted.

The BJP and Kishore targeted Yadav after people from his constituency surrounded his convoy while he was visiting Raghopur on January 24, demanding roads and other development projects.
In the viral clip, the locals could be seen lying on the road to highlight their plight. However, this irked Yadav, who could be seen lashing out at them for their behavior.
According to local newspapers, the residents of Raghopur have been complaining about the lack of roads for more than three decades. But despite their best efforts, a road has remained elusive for them. As a result schoolchildren and college students have to wade through waterlogged and muddy streets in the area.
