In the recently concluded Bihar state assembly elections, the Bhartiya Janata Party and Janata Dal United (JDU) alliance came back to power defeating the RJD and Congress led Mahagathbandhan. However, in a shocker to incumbent CM Nitish Kumar, his party JDU could only get 43 seats and turned out to be the junior partner in its alliance as the BJP improved its performance and grabbed 74 seats. Earlier, Kumar had refused to retain the post of Chief Minister of the state in the wake of the poor performance of his party but had later agreed to lead the state after the BJP leaders convinced him to head the government.

In the opposition ranks, 30 year old Tejashwi Yadav-led Rashtriya Janata Dal emerged as the largest political party by bagging 75 seats. However, its ally the Indian National Congress fared poorly and could only secure victory in 17 of the 70 seats, the party contested in the elections. The Chirag Paswan led Lok Janshakti Party which is believed to have harmed th JDU candidates could also win only one seat in the elections.
