Patna: During the second day of his Bihar tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held meetings in Hajipur, Muzaffarpur, and Chhapra. In Hajipur, the PM highlighted that during the tenure of Congress and RJD’s government at the Centre, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) seized only Rs 35 lakh over a span of 10 years.
