Patna, Dec 9 (IANS) The election results in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan do not betray "any wave in favour of the BJP", Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said Monday.

There is no reason for the Bharatiya Janata Party to celebrate even after it finished on top in all four states, he told the media here.

"The results do not reflect any wave in favour of the BJP," he said. "It is simple... The BJP has retained power in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and come to power in Rajasthan."

He said these were the states "where the BJP and Congress win and defeat each other in assembly polls".

Nitish Kumar said the BJP was rejected in Delhi "by people in view of an alternative to it. So, where is anything for the BJP to celebrate over the election outcome?

"The results of Delhi indicate people voted for an alternative to the BJP and Congress. It is wrong to say there is a wave in favour of the BJP in the country. There is no BJP wave in the country."
