Victorious Nitish Kumar says Bihar has won

Chief minister Nitish Kumar said that the sweeping victory of his alliance was a vote for Bihar's continued development. "This is a victory for the people of Bihar," Nitish Kumar said in his first reaction after his Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) crushed the opposition in assembly elections. "The people had a clear choice: do they want development or do they want Bihar to return to its old days... "The people have decided... we want development. Development has won in Bihar," Nitish Kumar said in his usual soft tone.
Thanking the people of Bihar he said that he does not have a magic wand but their people's support. Kumar promised to work hard for the next five years too. "We will work in the same way, probably we will work harder...I can give one promise. I will not hesitate to work hard."
He added that political competition should be about who works harder and also said that people who based their strategy on caste calculations have lost.
He congratulated the Election Commission for the successful elections but urged it to show more trust in Bihar saying that the six-phased polls were tough on the state.
