Ahead of the counting day for the Bihar Assembly elections on Tuesday, suspended Congress leader Sanjay Jha predicted an "absolute majority" for Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)-led Mahagathbandhan.
However, he added that the majority will not be "as overwhelming as some opinion polls have predicted". Jha also said that RJD leader and Mahagathbandhan's chief ministerial candidate Tejashwi Yadav will be the next CM of Bihar.
"Ok folks, time to put one’s neck out: I predict a Mahagathbandhan government in #Bihar, with an absolute majority but not as overwhelming as some opinion polls have predicted. Tejeshavi Yadav is the next CM (sic)," Sanjay Jha tweeted on Monday.
Earlier, almost every exit poll predicted Mahagathbandhan's victory in the Bihar Assembly polls held in three phases on October 28, November 3 and November 7.
