As expected, Nitish-Lalu sweep Bihar poll with their alliance partner Congress party gaining in strength. The Grand Alliance of JDU (U), RJD and Congress has won 178 seats in the 243 seated Bihar assembly, gaining a grand two-thirds majority in the House. The PM Modi’s BJP that hoped to wrestle power from CM Nitish Kumar, has been crushed by the Bihar voters, and is the new opposition party. The poll outcomes have become a soothing experience for the secular parties and sections of Indian society.
