Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on Sunday rejected suggestions that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat's reservation remark had any negative impact on the party's electoral fortunes in Bihar, saying the reasons for loss will be analysed in detail.
"We accept the mandate of people. We congratulate Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav. We all expect him (Nitish) to work for Bihar's progress with honesty," Prasad told reporters.
Asked whether Bhagwat's comment on a rethink on reservation led to BJP's loss, he said, "Absolutely not." "We will analyse the poll results and the reasons in detail," he said.
