The focus of the party leadership will be Bihar following the Jharkhand poll as the party was in a good position to form the next government, BJP Spokesman Syed Shahnawaz Hussain told a press conference here.     

Commenting on the performance of Jitan Ram Manjhi, Hussain said it was better than the performance of his predecessor Nitish Kumar.

The Bihar Chief Minister was striving to deliver but was hindered by Kumar, Hussain alleged, adding that an internal squabbling was on within the JD(U).

To a query about the alliance in JD(U) and RJD, Hussain said they "joined hands but not hearts".

"In fact, JD (U) and RJD are scared of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and forged the alliance to prevent BJP from coming to power," Hussain said while terming the alliance as a "compulsion".
