Campaigning for Kanhaiya, actor Javed Akhtar said, “Kanhaiya is all over in Begusarai. I am travelling across various locations. Many people have told me that they're influenced by Kanhaiya Kumar. I believe Kanhaiya because I realise he is going to speak the truth.”
While actor Prakash Raj predicting victory for Kanhaiya said, “All of us are supporting Kumar because he's the voice of the country. We all are here from different places in the country to show that Kumar is not alone. We are with him.”
