Surmounting anti-incumbency of 15 years, a mutinous former ally, and a spirited challenge from a resurgent opposition that rose from its ashes like proverbial phoenix after the 2019 Lok Sabha poll debacle, Nitish Kumar- led NDA was back in power in Bihar on Wednesday with a slender majority.


New Delhi, 11 November 2020

Kumar was then a partner in the Grand Alliance which included Lalu Prasad's RJD and the Congress.
