NEW DELHI/PATNA: The BJP-led NDA has won the majority in the Bihar Assembly election securing 125 votes while the Grand alliance led by RJD's Tejashwi Yadav managed to get 110.

The Grand Alliance or Mahagathbandhan witnessed a late surge in numbers on Tuesday (November 10, 2020) and RJD emerged as the single largest party in the state with 75 seats. The BJP won 74 while JD(u) got 43 seats. The congress managed to secure a humble 19 seats. 

After trailing in the initial rounds, the BJP-led NDA alliance has made a strong comeback and taken a comfortable lead over Tejashwi Yadav-led Grand Alliance as the counting of votes progressed earlier in the day, after several rounds of counting of votes polled in 243 constituencies in the three-phased Bihar assembly election 2020.

Meanwhile, the Congress party raised questions over the veracity of EVMs as NDA crossed the majority mark in Bihar defying the exit poll predictions - a charge clearly rejected by the Election Commission. In another development, Nitish Kumar’s JDU “conceded” defeat in the closely contested Bihar Chunav 2020 with reports quoting senior party leader KC Tyagi blaming the COVID-19 pandemic for the outcome of the election as the early trends showed Tejashwi Yadav-led RJD emerging as the single-party, followed by the BJP. The majority mark in the 243-seat Bihar assembly is 122.

The majority of exit polls had earlier predicted a big win for Tejashwi Yadav-led Grand Alliance or Mahagathbandhan, comprising the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), the Congress and the Left parties in the state, while the incumbent Chief Minister  Nitish Kumar is looking to retain office for the fourth term in this election. Most exit polls predicted a rout for the ruling JD(U)-BJP combine and a resounding victory for the Grand Alliance (Mahagathbandhan) led by RJD's 31-year-old chief ministerial candidate Tejashwi Yadav, who has thrown down the gauntlet at redoubtable Nitish Kumar, the battle-scarred veteran more than twice his age.
