Congress on Wednesday gave all credit to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for the ruling JD(U)-BJP combine's success in Bihar Assembly elections and said law and order in the state improved under his regime.

Party spokesperson Jayanti Natarajan said Congress went alone in the elections and it preferred to build a proper organisation.

"All credit to him (Kumar) for his and order did improve under Nitish Kumar," Natarajan said.

Asked about party's poor performance in the polls, she said there was always a desire among the Congress workers that the party should go it alone and find its own place.

She said the trend was started by party chief Sonia Gandhi and AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi. "We will pursue it in future as well as," she said.

Acknowledging that there is difference between UP and Bihar, Natarajan expressed confidence that "next time, we will improve our tally".
