The Janata Dal-United on Tuesday exuded confidence that the National Democratic Alliance will again form a government in Bihar under chief minister Nitish Kumar as trends showed the political alliance marching ahead of the Rashtriya Janata Dal-led Grand Alliance.

As per the trends, the NDA was leading in the elections.

"I have been saying this for a long time that the NDA will form the government under the leadership of CM Nitish Kumar. The opposition ran a misleading campaign with several allurements to woo voters," state JD-U chief Vashishtha Narayan Singh told reporters in Patna.

 

When asked whether the BJP or the JD-U will lead the government, Singh said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union home minister Amit Shah and BJP chief J P Nadda have made it "amply clear" on several occasions as to who will form the government.

The trio and other senior leaders had said on several occasions during campaigning that Nitish Kumar will lead the government if the NDA returns to power in the state.

Bihar BJP chief Sanjay Jaiswal, however, asked the media to wait till 5 pm for comments.
