Patna, Oct 29 (ANI): In an exclusive interview to ANI, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday said the grand alliance of the JD-U, RJD and Congress and the BJP-led NDA are not running neck-to-neck in the five-phased Bihar assembly elections. He said that BJP is trying to create an atmosphere of political hype as they are experts in boasting. Nitish further said that the BJP got a mandate in the Lok Sabha elections last year since there was division of votes between him and the RJD of Lalu Prasad Yadav, but the situation has taken a different twist in the ongoing Bihar polls. In response to BJP president Amit Shah’s recent claim that the NDA would win 32 to 34 seats in the first phase of the assembly elections and around 24 seats in the second phase, Kumar said that BJP is demoralized after the first two phases thus saying this to satisfy itself.
