Bihar may have decided to give the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) another chance, but the victory margin in some of the seats was very narrow – of less than 1,000.
The NDA, riding on the back of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) best ever performance in Bihar, itself won the election after a close fight, scraping past the majority mark with 124 seats as against the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) led grand alliance’s 111 seats. The majority mark in the 243-seat Assembly was 122.
But in some of the constituencies, the victory margin was wafer thin. In Barbigha, Janata Dal (United) candidate Sudarshan Kumar defeated Congress’ Gajanan Shahi by just 113 votes. In Bhore, victory margin was a mere 462.
