New Delhi: The BJP-led coalition’s defeat in Bihar was a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s working style, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday.

“The results are a referendum on the work and working style of Modi,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader told the media here.


He also said that the sweeping win by the ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and its allies RJD and Congress had shattered the “arrogance” and “self pride” of Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.

“The Bihar results have proved that people do not approve of the politics of hatred.

“An atmosphere of intolerance had enveloped the entire country. I am hopeful that all this will stop and the politics of affection will start.”

After congratulating his Bihar counterpart and JD-U leader Nitish Kumar on the “historic victory”, Kejriwal referred to the rising prices of food items.

“The people of this country want that Modi should stop touring foreign countries and work in India.”

Kejriwal, who has been having a running feud with the central government, had come out in support of Nitish Kumar ahead of and during the staggered Bihar election that ended on November 5.

Kejriwal, whose AAP routed the BJP in Delhi assembly elections in February, hoped the Bihar outcome would bring an end to the “illegal” and “unconstitutional” interference by the central government in Delhi.
