BJP president Amit Shah today said the BJP will form the next government in the state of Bihar, which will be the second state in the country after West Bengal to be ruled by the party.
“It is a historic moment.
It is a major victory.
We have won in West Bengal,” Shah said at a press conference here.
The BJP had held two successive statewide elections since May and its candidates had won almost 20,000 seats, according to preliminary results.
However, in the past month, the BJP lost four seats in the Lok Sabha and three in the Assembly.
Shah said the new government will be able to govern the state better than the previous one.
“Our goal is to ensure a better state of affairs.
We are making a change in governance,” Shah added.
The state BJP president said the party would focus on improving its image and not on getting seats in other political parties.
The alliance will form a government with the JD(U), the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), the BSP and the Congress.
Shah said the government will address various issues like land acquisition, the welfare of minorities, women empowerment and gender equality.
