Bihar Mandate: What it means for Nitish Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav and Owaisi

After an intensely fought election, the Bihar election results are out.

The NDA is set to return to power - but with a weaker chief minister.

The RJD-led alliance failed to muster up a majority — but Tejashwi Yadav’s campaign has made him a leader in his own right.

From the Left to Asaduddin Owaisi, other formations too have made a mark in the election.

What do the results signify?

To discuss the Bihar outcome, HT’s political economy and data editor, Roshan Kishore, joins this edition of HT explains.
