There have been several twists and turns, post 14 hours of counting of the votes where there have been allegations of cheating. Finally, BJP-led National Democratic Alliance was announced on November 11th as the winner of the Bihar Assembly election.
After the announcement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah will be reaching the BJP office by 6 in the evening on Wednesday to congratulate as well as appreciate workers for the Bihar Assembly Election success.
After the Prime Minister had boosted rallies, the National Democratic Alliance pushed beyond the majority mark of 122 in the 243-member Assembly. Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) won just 43 whereas BJP won over 74 seats to rise as the senior member in its alliance.
The competition, led by Tejashwi Yadav, RJD had put up an exceptional fight but ultimately fell short. Still, with 75 seats, the Rashtriya Janata Dal is the single-largest party, whereas the Congress, observed by many as the cause for the opposition’s defeat is to go all the way, challenged 70 seats though acquired only 19. LJP’s Chirag Paswan, which was the root of many difficulties for Nitish Kumar, obtained just one seat.
Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister, said on NDA’s triumph that the type of trust Bihar is looking for is just the way the entire nation has under the guidance of PM Narendra Modi. The same vision is required for Bihar to progress further and has also challenged the politics of the opposition parties.
The BJP Leaders in Goa which also includes Chief Minister Pramod Sawant actually took it to Twitter to congratulate JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi to retain power in Bihar and was a great victory for all.
