Conceding defeat, BJP chief Amit Shah on Sunday congratulated Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad on their massive victory and said his party respected the people’s mandate.

“Our good wishes to the new government to take Bihar on the path of development,” he said.

“We respect the mandate of the people of Bihar... I congratulate Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav on their victory in Bihar Assembly elections,” the BJP chief tweeted.

Meanwhile, many senior party leaders met Shah at his residence as it became clear that the BJP-led NDA was headed to a massive loss in the high-stakes elections.
