As trends for the Jharkhand Assembly elections showed the Congress-JMM-RJD alliance ahead of the ruling BJP, NCP Spokesperson Nawab Malik tweeted, "The people of Jharkhand shattered the arrogance of Modi Ji, Amit Shah and BJP. Democracy has won." The latest trends show that JMM, which is leading in 28 seats, has overtaken the BJP as the single largest party.
The Shiv Sena also hit out at the BJP saying that the poll trends show that 'people are not buying the Amit Shah-led party's politics based on sentimental issues like the National Register of Citizens.'
It also said that the BJP needs to introspect on its performance in Jharkhand after Maharashtra. "The people of Jharkhand have demolished the arrogance of Modi Ji, Amit Shah, and BJP. Democracy has won," NCP chief spokesperson Nawab Malik tweeted.
