BJP-lead NCP on Sunday won the Bihar assembly election in a landslide, beating Congress-led UDF in the assembly elections held on May 16.BJP president Amit Shah, who won the party’s majority in the lower house of the state legislature, said in a statement that the victory was a testament to the commitment and the resolve of the people.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said he would immediately form a government.
He said the results will be announced on Monday.
“We are not just going to form a new government, we are going to give a mandate to all our citizens and make sure that they come out with the mandate they have in Bihar,” Kumar said.
The BJP-UDF alliance had been in power since the 2019 state polls.
It had lost two-thirds of its seats in the last assembly elections in Bihar in 2021, when it lost power in the wake of a communal flare-up in the city of Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Bihari Janata Party (BJP-led) after it swept to power in 2019.
The election in Bihar was the first time in the history of the BJP that it has secured a majority in Bihar’s legislature.
