predicted that Tejashwi Yadav is likely to become the next chief minister of Bihar.
The exit polls have given a thumping majority to RJD led Mahagathbandhan in the 2020 Bihar Assembly elections where the alliance is expected to win between 139-161 seats.
What is interesting is the fact that if the exit poll predictions translate into exact results on November 10, Tejashwi Yadav will be the youngest chief minister of a state in the country at the age of 31.
Born on Nov 9, 1989, Tejashwi will turn 31 years old on Monday. If he goes on to become the Bihar CM, he will be the youngest in the country to do so.
According to data, M.O.H Farook became the chief minister of Puducherry in April 1967 at the age of 29 years. However, Puducherry is a union territory and not a state.
Therefore, Tejashwi Yadav may become the youngest Chief Minister of any state in India at the age of 31 years.
In Bihar, the record of being the youngest Chief Minister is currently held by Satish Prasad Singh who became the chief minister in January 1968 at the age of 32.
Dr Jagannath Mishra became the Chief Minister of Bihar in April 1975 at the age of 38.
If India Today-My Axis exit polls are anything to go by, Tejashwi Yadav will be the youngest Chief Minister of not only Bihar but the country at the age of 31.
