Patna, May 19: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has cautioned BJP against going overboard with celebrations of its victory in Assam, as he congratulated all political parties and alliances which emerged victorious in assembly polls in the five states whose results were declared today.

"The BJP need not rejoice beyond a point over its victory in Assam which has come due to stitching up alliance which the Congress has failed to do in the belief that it was capable to win the polls on its own," Kumar told reporters.

Taking a subtle dig at the Congress for its strategy to go alone in Assam, the Bihar Chief Minister noted that the outcome of the polls in the largest north-eastern state swung in favour of the BJP as it had formed a pre-poll alliance with some regional parties.
