Talking to reporters here, Jaitley said, "The polls results have showed that politics of Bihar has changed and that 'charisma or family' does not win elections."
"That the people wanted a repeat of the government under Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's leadership indicates that it is a victory of hope over fear and optimism over despair. It has changed the political agenda of Bihar now," he added.
Hailing Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi for running a successful government, Arun Jaitley said, "We are proud of their leadership. The NDA ran a government with maturity and integrity."
Former Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also said, "development has paid off in Bihar.There is a profound level of understanding in between Nitish and the BJP."
Speaking on the JD(U)-BJP post poll alliance, Ravi Sankar said, "Nitish is the leader but he consults us. There is no disconnect in between Bihar BJP and the national leadership."
