Assembly election results 2017: Nitish Kumar congratulates PM Modi, takes a dig at Congress
Kumar’s observations had come in the backdrop of allegations of EVM tampering in Gujarat to favour the BJP.
“Some may criticise the EVMs out of fear of defeat, but the EVMs have made elections transparent and impartial. Now, nobody can deprive anybody of the right to cast votes,” Kumar had tweeted in Hindi.
The BJP, which has been in power in PM Modi’s home state uninterruptedly since 1998, last time had won 115 seats while the Congress had 61.
The elections for the 182-seat Assembly were held on December 9 and 14, after an acrimonious campaign, which was dominated by a face-off between PM Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
