Mandate favoured Mahagathbandhan but EC's result favoured NDA: Tejashwi
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav who steered the party to emerge as single largest party in Bihar elections, even though his alliance could not manage to defeat Nitish-led NDA, has reacted on the rout suffered by party in the Bihar assembly elections. The Yadav scion who was the Chief Ministerial face of the opposition has said that the mandate of the people was given to Mahgathbandhan but Election Commission's result was in the favour of NDA.
Thanking the people of Bihar who voted for the Grand Alliance, Tejashwi said:" I thank Bihar's people. The mandate favoured Mahagathbandhan, but Election Commission’s result was in NDA's favour." He said this hasn't happened first time. In 2015 when Mahagathbandhan was formed, votes were in our favour but BJP made back door entry to gain power.
