Bihar Election Result 2019, Jharkhand Election Result 2019: The Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance swept both Bihar and Jharkhand winning an overwhelming number of seats. While the BJP, JDU, LJP combine won 39 seats, the RJD secured just one seat for itself in Bihar.

The RJD, which contested the general elections for the first time ever without the active participation of its president Lalu Yadav, appears to have missed his services dearly as it suffered a humiliating defeat. On the other hand, Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United seems to have gained people’s support by joining the NDA again.

Similarly in Jharkhand, BJP got an overwhelming people’s support winning 11 seats. The Congress and JMM won a seat each.
