Bihar got swept away by the "Modi tsunami" as the BJP made a clean sweep in the seats contested by it in the state while allies JD(U) and LJP, headed by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Ram Vilas Paswan, too rode the tide and came out with stellar performances.

In a state where the total number of seats is 40, the BJP had fought 17 and emerged victorious in all of these while the JD(U) which had contested as many, lost only the Muslim-dominated Kishanganj to the Congress.

The LJP struck gold, winning all the six seats it had contested, maintaining its tally of five years ago and improving on its strike rate compared with that of 2014 when it had fielded candidates in seven seats.

Return to the NDA also helped the JD(U), which had contested separately from the coalition in 2014, boost its tally from a dismal two seats five years ago.

The Congress, which had fought nine, lost all but managed to retain Kishanganj, which was won by late MP Asrarul Haque in 2014 and where Mohd Javed defeated JD(U) by a margin of under 35,000 votes. It was the worst-ever performance by the Grand Old Party in the state in decades.
