Christmas seemed to have come early for Congress and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha with party workers bursting crackers and distributing sweets as trends for the Jharkhand assembly elections showed the Congress-JMM alliance ahead of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.             

"People have voted for change," Congress spokesperson Pranav Jha told reporters at the Congress office, anticipating a victory for the opposition alliance.

Elections were held over five phases between November 30 and December 20.
