Prime Minister Narendra Modi acknowledged his coalition’s victory in the Bihar Assembly election close to midnight after a long day of counting. He said the people of Bihar, a State he termed the birthplace of democracy, had declared that their only priority was development.

In a series of tweets, Mr. Modi mentioned women voters in Bihar who exercised their franchise in large numbers (5% more than male voters this time) for “blessing” the NDA and the Centre’s “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India) campaign. He also thanked the youth of Bihar for the same.

“Bihar’s villages, poor, youth, elderly, workers, shopkeepers have all kept faith with the NDA’s ‘ sabka saath, sabka vishwas ’ mantra,” he tweeted.

Mr. Modi’s comments came even as the Opposition alliance demanded a recount in certain seats.
