Her statement comes after most of the exit polls showed that Bihar voters are in favour of Tejashwi Yadav-led grand alliance. As per the exit poll projections, the Mahagathbandhan is likely to form the government in Bihar as they have an edge over the NDA.
However, BJP has exuded confidence that NDA will win enough seats to form the government again in Bihar.
Speaking to reporters, BJP spokesperson Syed Zafar Islam said that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will have major victory as booth level reports show that the NDA will be back in power.
Polling for the 243-seater Assembly concluded on November 7 after the end of the third phase. Counting of votes will start on November 10 morning.
