New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took to Twitter and wrote that he will be campaigning in poll-bound Jharkhand and added that he is looking forward to being among the people of the state.

"Will be campaigning in Jharkhand today. Looking forward to being among the people of this great state. Today's rallies will take place in Daltonganj and Gumla," the Prime Minister tweeted.

Chief minister Raghubar Das, who is seeking a second term earlier, tweeted, "In 2014, you gave immense love to Modi ji. In 2019, you gave immense affection and blessings to Modi ji. Modi ji worked day and night for the development of Jharkhand. Modi ji is coming to the holy land of Palamu. When Modi ji is with Jharkhand then why think about someone else."

Jharkhand will go to polls in five phases from 30 November. The first phase of polling will be held on 30 November, the second phase on 6 December, the third phase on 12 December, the fourth phase on 16 December and the last phase on 20 December.

The Congress has forged an alliance with the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in the state to take on the BJP. In 2014, the BJP, which won 43 seats, formed the government along with All Jharkhand Students' Union (AJSU), which had won five seats, under the leadership of Raghubar Das.
