Understand in numbers: BJP-JDU or RJD-Congress? Whose government will the people of Bihar form?

Patna. Preparations for the Bihar Assembly are in full swing. For the first phase of voting, all the candidates are campaigning vigorously in their area. But this time the equation of almost every seat has changed. The reason for this is the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) contesting elections separately from the NDA, on the other hand the RJD-ML (CPI-ML)-Congress (INC) coming together. However, a similar interesting contest was seen in the 2015 elections as well. Then JDU-RJD-Congress (Mahagathbandhan) fought together against NDA. The election results came in favor of the Grand Alliance and Nitish Kumar again became the Chief Minister. But within two years, Nitish again joined the BJP after separating from Lalu.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (80) won the maximum number of seats in 2015, followed by JDU (69), BJP (54) and Congress (25). Although the RJD-JDU seats had come in more, the BJP was ahead in the vote share. In the year 2015, the BJP got 24.4 percent of the votes, while in 2010 the vote share of the BJP was only 16.5 percent. However, between 2010 and 2015, the BJP’s vote share increased by about 8 per cent, but fell by 38 seats. In such a situation, let’s have a look at the last 3 election results in Bihar. Which party got how many seats, how much was the vote share and how many parties had entered the election fray…
