The results of the Bihar assembly elections have come and the NDA has got the mandate to form the government once again in this state with 243 assembly seats.
A majority of 122 seats is needed to form a government in Bihar and the NDA has crossed this important figure by winning 125 seats.
The Grand Alliance, which gave a thump to the NDA, was slightly chased by the majority figure. The Grand Alliance has got 110 seats.
JDU has got 43 seats.
On the other hand, MP Asaduddinovasi’s party All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen has done well, winning five seats. Bahujan Samaj Party has also won one seat.

The NDA has got a majority due to the better performance of the BJP and other allies but the performance of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s party Janata Dal United (JDU) in these elections was not very encouraging. JDU, which won 71 seats in 2015, has got 43 seats this time.
At the same time, Congress, which won 27 seats in the 2015 elections, got only 19 seats in these elections.
When the counting of votes started on Tuesday morning, the grand alliance had taken the lead in the initial trend. At that time it seemed that the Grand Alliance could get a majority to form a government, but from around 12 noon, the NDA gained momentum and in the trend, the total seats of BJP and JDU started appearing ahead of the seats which were in favor of the Grand Alliance. Once the NDA made an edge in the trend, then it retained it till the end. In the middle, the Grand Alliance sometimes seemed to reduce this gap, but in the final result, the NDA achieved the majority figure.
However, there was a time in the middle when it seemed that the Mahagathbandhan was not even crossing the hundred mark but after the evening the seats of the Mahagathbandhan increased, but it never appeared close to the majority.
