Replying to byelections being held in two Assembly seats, Kumar said the NDA was strongly vying for both the Assembly Constituency seats which were won by the JD( U) and maintained that the people would be taking the final decision during the polling.
Kumar said he was not in the habit of making tall claims and informed that the NDA collectively decided about the candidates who filled their nominations during the day.
