Congratulating Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on spectacular victory of the Grand Alliance, Mr Singh said, "it is a victory of secular forces consisting the RJD, JD(U) and Congress and a signal that united opposition can defeat the NDA."
The chief minister said that "the people of Bihar have shown the mirror to the NDA government by giving crushing defeat to communal forces.
The leader of the opposition in Himachal Vidhan Sabha and BJP leader PK Dhumal, along with the state party chief Satpal Singh Satti, said, "though the results are not to the expectation of the party, we accept the verdict of the people".
The BJP high command will review the election results to pinpoint the shortcoming and take steps to remove those, Mr Dhumal said, adding that the party was not disappointed or demoralized and the NDA government would continue to push its pro-people agenda.
