New Delhi: The CPI(M) Wednesday said it was
disappointed by the Bihar Assembly poll results.

"Our number of seats have gone down in Bihar
Assembly...naturally we are disappointed," CPI(M) leader
Brinda Karat told reporters outside Parliament.

CPI and CPI(M) have so far drawn a blank in the Bihar
polls which have been swept by the JD(U)-BJP alliance.

Congratulating JD(U)-BJP on their good performance,
she said, "We all congratulate Nitish Kumar for the victory in
Bihar. His alliance has made a record victory in Bihar."

However, Karat refused to comment on Congress` poor
performance despite the high voltage campaign by Rahul Gandhi.

Taking a dig at the BJP for not removing BS
Yeddyurappa for certain "caste consideration" in Karnataka,
Karat said, "In Bihar they (BJP) do not believe in caste
combination. Bihar elections have risen above caste and in
Karnataka, obviously, they are using certain caste factors to
protect somebody who is so corrupt and guilty of wrong-doing."
