Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Will sympathy votes change RJD's fate in Bihar's Pataliputra?

Updated : May 09, 2019 09:32 PM IST

In Bihar's Pataliputra constituency, Lalu Prasad Yadav's eldest daughter Misa Bharti is again pitted against BJP's Ram Kripal Yadav, Union Minister of State for Rural Development.

Ram Kripal Yadav had defeated Misa Bharti last time by a margin of over 40,000 votes.

This time, however, the RJD's campaign has been hinged on the jailed and ailing Lalu Prasad Yadav. The party is also raising issues of corruption, lack of jobs and lack of development in Bihar.

CNBC-TV18's Archana Shukla spoke to Rabri Devi, Misa Bharti and the people of Pataliputra to understand the key issues in the constituency.
