As votes were being counted in Bihar and Jharkhand on Sunday, the Bharatiya Janata Party said that trends there were on expected lines.
In Bihar, there was no confusion over the National Democratic Alliance's chief ministerial candidate being Nitish Kumar, party general secretary Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
"The Congress and Ramvilas Paswan are hand in glove to help RJD through the backdoor. It (the Congress and Paswan-led Lok Janshakti Party alliance) was to confuse and misguide voters to divide the anti-incumbency votes against the RJD rule," Naqvi said.
Naqvi, however, conceded that in Haryana, the BJP was not a strong alternative so people voted for the Congress as they were "fed up with the misrule of Chief Minister Om Parkash Chautala".
