Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday thanked the people for voting in favour of the Mahagathbandhan as reflected in the Bihar assembly election results and said the ‘historic’ victory belonged especially to the poor, oppressed and the backwards of Bihar.

“I bow down to the poor, oppressed and the backward communities in Bihar and thank them from the bottom of my heart for this historic and unprecedented victory. They have given a new turn to the politics of this nation,” Lalu Prasad Yadav tweeted.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi branded the grand alliance’s victory as a ‘triumph of unity over divisiveness, humility over arrogance and love over hate’.

“Congratulations to the people of Bihar, to Nitishji, to Laluji, to the Congress leaders and karyakartas and the Mahagathbandhan on this victory,” the Office of Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi called up Nitish to congratulate him and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah has also accepted the mandate of the people of Bihar.

The mahagathbandhan is leading in 161 seats, with the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA is ahead in 74 seats respectively so far.
