1.4 0.9 AIMIM 1.2 Nota 1.7 bhubaneswar l wednesday l november 11, 2020 l `7.00 l PAGES 12 l late CITY EDITION 0.8 Source: ECI (As of 1 am Wednesday) Sisters and daughters of Bihar have voted this time in record numbers to show how big their role is in self-sufficient Bihar. We are satisfied that NDA got an opportunity to give new confidence to the mother power of Bihar in the past years. This confidence will give us strength in advancing Bihar If Nitish Kumar becomes Bihar chief minister, despite winning less number of seats (as compared to the BJP), he should thank the Shiv Sena for it Our strike rate in Bihar is 80% and if we had been given more seats, we would have contributed more to the MGB tally A sinister campaign was run against Nitish Kumar as part of a conspiracy. Our own also harmed us along with the outsiders I would be able to answer (on whether to extend support to Mahagathbandhan) once the final results are out. Why should I speculate now?

The biggest gainers were Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and his Manipur counterpart N Biren Singh, as they were assured of stability on the back of the BJP’s sweeping victories in both the states. Barring Haryana and Telangana, ruling dispensations managed to control the bypoll narrative elsewhere. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath further consolidated his hold, winning six of the seven Assembly by-election seats at stake. Chief ministers B S Yediyurappa (Karnataka), Naveen Patnaik (Odisha) and Hemant Soren’s alliance (Jharkhand) bagged two seats each in their respective states. In Gujarat, the BJP government led by Vijay Rupani won all eight Assembly bypoll seats. The big surprise came from Telangana as the BJP bagged the Dubbaka Assembly seat with a slender margin. Its nominee M Raghunandan Rao trounced TRS’s Solipeta Sujatha by 1,118 votes. By wresting the seat, the party got bragging rights for taking its Mission South agenda forward. The BJP’s performance came despite its national leadership staying away from the campaigns, focus as it did on the Bihar Assembly polls instead. The party’s state leaders demonstrated their dominance over the Congress in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, while denying opportunity to the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh to make a comeback. Defector Jyotiraditya Scindia delivered on his promise as the BJP shrugged off a spirited Kamal Nath-led Congress campaign to win 19 of the total 27 Assembly seats. In Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Manipur, the BJP’s fortunes rode on imports from the Congress in recent times. As for the big picture, BJP leaders sought to read in the outcome a vote of confidence of the people in the leadership of the prime minister amid the Covid-19 pandemic. inside tejashwi’s social engineering fails | P7 scindia proves his clout | P8 Naveen juggernaut unstoppable, BJD romps home in exotic Father-son duo brings bypolls Results BHUBANESWAR E veggies to local market Balasore Sadar HEALTHY BUSINESS HEALTHCARE IN LOCKDOWN Tirtol Mi-das touch Mumbai Indians clinched their fifth IPL crown in Dubai on Tuesday by beating Delhi Capitals in the final by five wickets.
