Bihar Results Will Usher New Turn in National Politics: Sena

Needling BJP, its ally in Maharashtra Shiv Sena today said the Bihar elections results "denotes decline of a leader" in an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asserted that it will bring in a "new" turn in the country's politics.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut also said if elections were to be held in Maharashtra now, similar results will emerge.

"BJP fought the Bihar elections under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. BJP should accept it. Defeat denotes the decline of a leader. If elections are held in Maharashtra now, same reults will come as happened in Bihar," he said.

He said that elections are fought on leaders and referred to Congress' defeat in Lok Sabha when its president Sonia Gandhi was held responsible.

"Nitish Kumar has emerged as a superhero. His victory was the need in Bihar. He has done good work in Bihar. I greet him on behalf of Shiv Sena. The results in Bihar will bring a new turn to politics of the country," he said.

Asked if the BJP's performance reflected poorly on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who addressed around 30 rallies in Bihar during campaigning ahead of the elections, Raut said,

"Every poll is fought in the leader's name. The leader should accept this."

"I think BJP bore the brunt of the type of language used. A person occupying top Constitutional post should be humble," he said.
