Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Shivanand Tiwari has hit out at its ally, the Congress party, saying it only focused on contesting more seats. "Congress fails when it comes to winning those seats," Mr Tiwari said. The Congress was widely blamed for dragging down the opposition coalition in Bihar, having contested 70 of the 243 seats, but taking home only 19. RJD's Tejashwi Yadav-led Mahagathbandhan won 110 seats, 12 less than the magic figure of 122 in the 243-member Bihar Assembly. The NDA won 125 seats.
