Mandate favoured Mahagathbandhan but EC’s result was in NDA's favour: Tejashwi Yadav

Patna (Bihar), Nov 12 (ANI): Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on November 12 thanked people of Bihar and claimed that state’s mandate favoured Mahagathbandhan, but Election Commission’s result was in NDA's favour. He said, “I thank Bihar's people. The mandate favoured Mahagathbandhan, but Election Commission’s result was in NDA's favour. This hasn't happened first time. In 2015 when Mahagathbandhan was formed, votes were in our favour but BJP made back door entry to gain power.” In the recent Bihar Assembly elections, Nitish Kumar-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won majority, winning 125 seats in a closely contested election. CM Nitish’s party Janata Dal United secured 43 seats and Bharatiya Janata Party won 74 seats.
