Patna, Nov 11: Days after their defeat in assembly election in Bihar, another BJP leader blames the party for its loss in the state.

Mrinal Sekhar, who contested the assembly election from Amarpur with BJP ticket, believes that polarisation of votes was the main reason for which the party lost the crucial election.

Speaking about the loss, Mr Sekhar told Oneindia, "Grand alliance had a good hold on each of its allies, but BJP's bonding with its allies was less."

"We will revise our mistake and will work further, as there should be strong action against the party people who betrayed party," he added without taking names such as Shahtrughan Sinha and RK Singh and many others.

When questioned, Mr Sekhar, however, refused to speak about the people who, according to him, betrayed the party.

He also pointed out a few mistakes which BJP has committed while distributing tickets. He claimed that they got very little time for campaign as the party leaders were late to distribute ticket.

Speaking about the land slide victory of Grand Alliance, Mr Sekhar said that people of Bihar chose caste over development.

Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance won the assembly election in the state with 178 seats. On the contrary, BJP and its allies (HAM, LJP, RLSP) managed to bag only 58 seats.
