Patna: The ruling JD (U) claimed that a `Nitish wave` is perceptible in Bihar from the massive voter turnout during the first three phases of the elections.
"The development-centric politics pursued by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is receiving dividends as evident from massive voter turnout during the first three phases of the elections," JD(U) national spokesperson Shivanand Tiwari said.
He claimed that RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his LJP counterpart Ram Vilas Paswan, who had criticised the Chief Minister on development, were bound to feel the Nitish wave.
Enthusiasm among voters this time, he said, was more than that witnessed in the February 2005 and October 2005 assembly polls in the state.
He claimed that the NDA would form the next government with a comfortable majority again in Bihar.
