The same image was also featured in an article by Desh Gujarat dated February 5, 2014. “The Kolkata crowd at Modi’s rally(In pictures),” the headline read.
We also found the entire video of the rally, uploaded by the official YouTube channel of Narendra Modi dated February 5, 2014.
Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the picture in circulation is old and NOT from Bihar.
