NDA Has The Last Laugh In Bihar Elections, RJD Becomes Single-Largest Party With 75 Seats

During the counting, the RJD and Congress leaders also reached the Election Commission accusing Nitish Kumar of trying to influence counting. 

 

Patna| After about 18 hours of counting, the picture of the results in Bihar became clear. The NDA managed to retain the power with 125 seats, but the party that suffered the most was Nitish Kumar’s JDU. JDU lost 28 seats compared to last time and came down to 43 seats. At the same time, BJP won 74 seats with a gain of 21 seats. The RJD emerged as the single largest party, winning 75 seats. The Grand Alliance led by Tejashwi Yadav got 110 seats.

Earlier, in the trends, the NDA touched the majority mark at 10:30 AM in the morning, but the picture changed about eight hours later, around half past six in the evening. NDA dropped from 134 to 120. However, two hours later, it again crossed the majority mark in the trends with an increase of 123 seats. The margin of votes in 23 seats was less than two thousand, so the seats of NDA continued to be less than the majority.

By the evening, the RJD was seen to hold the NDA at par. It received 23.1% of the votes against the BJP’s 19.4%. During the counting, the RJD and Congress leaders also reached the Election Commission with a complaint. They accused that Nitish is trying to influence counting. On the other hand, even before all the results were announced, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the voters of Bihar for victory. He said, “Every voter of Bihar has clearly stated that his priority is only and only development.”
