"All parties urged people to vote for the development, but most of the people voted on caste basis," said a social worker Dr Amarnath while talking to OneIndia.
"As Narendra Modi have given rays of hope for development and Nitish Kumar worked for development in Bihar so people don't want to lose him as chief minister," added Dr Amarnath.
"Price rise of essential commodities has also hit hard common people in the state. It does not make any sense providing wifi if people cannot fulfil their daily needs," further said the social worker.
He also pointed out security threat from Nepal which shares its border with India (Bihar).
According to him, Left Front parties like CPI, Samjwadi Party may also make their presence felt in the state by winning few seats in the state.
"We need change for development and we don't need changes for worse and people are afraid of losing JD-U) as few development have been done and can be seen."
"PM Narendra Modi has done nothing for common people instead he spent much of his time in image building exercise called "Mission Modi," said Gopal Prasad, a CPI supporter.
A BJP supporter and an engineer by profession, Chitranjan Kumar told that people in Bihar have not voted for development indeed they voted on caste basis.
"We have voted for change, education system has badly hit in Bihar," he added.
"We cannot tolerate person who plays with farmers sentiments. I have voted for JD-U who will take care of farmers sentiments," said Kisan Mazdoor Jan Chetana Sangh worker Sanjay.
However, the picture will become clear whether people have voted for change or voting has been done on the basis of caste after by this afternoon as vote count is underway in Bihar.
