"We are going to form the government in Jharkhand," Nadda told the media, a day after the BJP and its ally All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU) secured a majority in the 81-member assembly.

"This is the first time since the creation of the state (in 2000) that a pre-poll alliance or political party has won such a big majority," he said after a meeting of the BJP parliamentary board here.

Nadda said a meeting of BJP legislators in Jharkhand would be called and a leader appointed after consultations. He would attend the meeting.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has won 37 seats and the AJSU four.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU)  alliance attained the magic figure of 42 to win a majority in Jharkhand for the first time but the other two tie-ups -- Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM)-Trinamool Congress and Congress-Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)-Janata Dal United (JDU) -- failed miserably in recently concluded Assembly elections.

The BJP-AJSU party and the LJP had a pre-poll alliance. As per the agreement the BJP fought majority 72 of the seats, while the AJSU contested eight and the LJP got one for the 81 members in Jharkhand Assembly.
The BJP won 37 seats out of its share of seats, more than the double it won in the previous polls (eighteen), while the AJSU won five out of eight seats it contested and LJP failed to win its only seat.
