"BJP has tried its best for good result and contested the poll with good intention to deliver. But we could not send the message among the masses properly and even failed to identify the core issues of the people," Munda said on the sidelines of a Kali Puja related programme organised by him.

Asked if the Bihar debacle would have an impact on the Narendra Modi-headed government at the Centre, Munda said in democracy, the outcome of poll result of one state will hardly have any impact on the Union government.

On whether Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are responsible for the defeat, Munda replied in the negative.

Munda also refused to comment on issues like RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's view on reservation, statements by party leaders on communal line as well as BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha's outburst against the party leadership.These issues will be discussed at the appropriate party forum, he said.
