‘Choose hope over fear, truth over lies’: Chidambaram invokes Biden in appeal to Bihar voters
Invoking US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, former Union Finance Minister and Congressional Leader P Chidambaram called on voters in Bihar to “choose hope over fear and truth over lies.”
“Joe Biden, the Democratic Party candidate in the American elections, said yesterday that ‘We choose hope over fear, unity over division, science over fiction and, yes, truth over lies,'” Chidambaram said in a tweet.
He said it is a good vote that the people of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and elsewhere should cast when they go to the polls in October and November to vote.
