by Shatakshi Gupta

Election results have come out for 243 assembly seats in Bihar.  After counting of votes, the situation has now become very clear and Nitish Kumar has once again got power in Bihar.  According to information available on the Election Commission website, out of 243 assembly seats in Bihar, NDA got 125 and Tejashwi Yadav-led ‘Mahagathbandhan’ got 110 seats.  Talking about party-wise performance, RJD has emerged as the largest party in this time elections.  It is followed by BJP and JDU.

 It is very clear that the people of Bihar have given the mandate to the NDA.  In the 243-seat assembly, the NDA got an absolute majority with 125 seats.  In this, BJP managed to win 74 seats and JDU 43 seats.  The Grand Alliance of RJD and Congress was successful in capturing 110 seats.  Nitish Kumar finally managed to save his credentials despite a neck to neck contest in many seats.

The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), which was contesting under the leadership of Chirag Paswan, could not achieve any great success and was reduced to 1 seat.  However, Owaisi’s party AIMIM managed to win 5 seats.  At the same time, former CM Jitan Ram Manjhi has got 4 seats under Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular).  Despite Rahul Gandhi’s aggressive campaign, the Congress party could win only 19 seats. Apart from this, CPI 1, CPI(M) 2, CMI-ML (Liberation) 12, Vikas Insaaf Party 4, Bahujan Samaj Party 1 and Independents won 1 seat.

In this election, a special thing was that Pushpam Priya Chaudhary, who came from London to try the stakes in Bihar politics through the plurals party, could not win a single seat.

 As soon as the NDA got a majority in the Bihar election results, the phase of allegations also started.  RJD tweeted that 109 were being shown on TV after winning 119 seats.  RJD leader Manoj Jha also targeted the Nitish government.

 However, the Election Commission out rightly denied the allegations of RJD.  The EC clearly stated that they are not working under pressure from anyone.  They are doing their work according to the rules.  The Election Commission said that in the seats where the margin of victory and defeat is very less, then there is a possible recounting there but only according to the rule.
