The counting of the assembly elections held in Bihar was concluded late on Tuesday (November 10, 2020) and with this the BJP emerged as the second largest party in the state with 74 seats. The RJD got one more than that, ie 75 seats. While many political pundits and exit polls predicted the Grand Alliance’s victory, Opindia, after its ground coverage, had an accurate estimate of the election results and spoke of the NDA’s victory. Not only this, every step was also estimated accurately in this estimation.
We kept on saying that the NDA government is going to be formed in the state, because Lalu’s younger son Tejashwi Yadav failed to become a substitute for Nitish Kumar as a leader. And exactly the same happened. The NDA surpassed the 122 seats needed for a majority by winning 125 seats. In this way Nitish Kumar will again be the Chief Minister of Bihar and the RJD’s political exile which started in Bihar from 2005 will continue.
Opindia estimated in its analyzes that while the opposition had an edge in the first phase of elections, the NDA moved towards a majority as the elections progressed. There was no wind in the election, but the public welfare schemes of the Modi government benefited the BJP. We were also saying that JDU seats are going to decrease. RJD may become the largest party, but government of NDA Will be made.
Now, if we talk about every phase, then there were 71 seats in the first phase, 94 seats in the second and 78 seats in the third. The seat share of the NDA kept increasing with each step. These were 29.6%, 52.1% and 66.7% respectively. According to our estimates, the seat share of the Mahagathbandhan kept decreasing with every step and stood at 67.6%, 46.8% and 26.9% respectively. Voting for the three phases was held on October 28, November 3 and 7.

In this way, the vote percentage and seat share of the BJP and JDU alliance in Bihar kept increasing with each phase, while many TV channels assumed that Tejashwi Yadav was going to become the Chief Minister on the basis of the first phase. The NDA got 105 seats out of 125 in the second and third phase itself, because in the first phase it did not have much at stake. In this way every estimate of Opindia proved to be accurate.
The reversal in statistics during the counting of votes in Bihar elections has again ‘hacked’ EVMs. As the NDA gained an edge in the seats by midday, allegations started against EVMs on Twitter. Congress leader Udit Raj has said that the entire election to Mars and the moon, to justify this EVM hack Added to. At the same time Pushpam Priya directly accused the BJP of this. Now after the results, this cry has become more intense.
