RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday demanded recounting of postal ballot votes in all those constituencies where they were counted at the end. "The postal ballot votes are given by service people...On whose order were the postal ballots counted at the end? We demand recounting of postal ballot votes as we were defeated by very fewer margins," Tejashwi added.
Tejashwi Yadav thanked people of Bihar for voting and said the mandate in the assembly elections "favoured Mahagathbandhan, but Election Commission's result was in NDA's favour". "In 2015 when Mahagathbandhan was formed, votes were in our favour but BJP made back door entry to gain power," Yadav added. The Mahagathbandhan won 110 seats in assembly polls.
