Nitish Kumar's victory is believed to the triumph of development, progress, caste-religion discrepancy or rather a successful triumph over gundaraj (reign of goons) in the state as Bihar was earlier known as.
From the very beginning, 2010 assembly polls counting hinted that JD(U)-BJP alliance would create a history in Bihar with their new win and they proved as clinching 206 seats, where JD(U) won 115 of the 141 seats.
Just after their significant win, Nitish Kumar announced, "I had not imagined to get so many seats and such a bigger mandate. I am overwhelmed and pray to the god to give me enough strength to do more. I have no magic wand but nothing is impossible with a strong willpower."
Pointing at the Muslim's vote that the party acquired, JD(U) leader Ghulam Rasool Baliavi informed, "Muslims have sent a clear message to the 'self-proclaimed' secular parties that they should not take the community for granted."
While on the other side, Lalu Prasad's RJD-LJP alliance managed to clinch only 25 seats (RJD- 23, LJP- 2) and former CM of the state Rabri Devi lost in two seats.
