Bihar (SunstarTV Bureau): Bihar election was the pitch perfect example of a pendulum swinging widely by the hour. The alliance led by the Bharatiya Janta Party- Janta Dal (United) won 125 seats of total 243, claiming majority to form the government.
Till midnight the possibilities of any party forming a majority was in a state of cliffhanger. Rashtriya Janata Dal-led mahagathbandhan closed in with total seat count of 110, turning Bihar-election, 2020 into an edge of the seat thriller.
The election results could have turned the wind’s direction for young Tejashwi. Throughout the campaign, he drew a large crowd and created a huge buzz on the unemployment in the state. But the promises and supports didn’t translate into votes.
Where a large segment of voters had notion that Nitish Kumar has turned arrogant over the last five years. “The NDA campaign on the return of the jungle raj created a kind of fear psychosis among the voters”, said R K Verma, a political analyst.
