Onkar Singh in New Delhi | November 22, 2005 11:18 IST
Sushil Kumar Modi, president of the Bihar unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party has described the Bihar election result as a "historic win over jungle raj".
"The results are very much according to our expectations and we will definitely cross 140. A part of this credit should go to the misrule of Mr Buta Singh," Modi told rediff.com soon after the results were announced.
A delighted Modi emerged from his room only after the combine's lead had crossed the 136-figure mark.
He, however, refused to say if the new government headed by the JD-U's Nitish Kumar will have a deputy chief minister.
Surprisingly, the BJP's central leadership had not shown up at the party headquarters till 11 am.
