Patna: JD(U)leader PK Shahi, whose massive defeat in Maharajganj bypoll has put Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in a tight spot and emboldened RJD chief Lalu Prasad to ask him to quit, on Monday said even a campaign by Narendra Modi could not have done much for him.

"Modi was no issue in the Maharajganj bypoll. It was my defea. Even a campaign by Modi could not have done much for me," Shahi, who is state Education Minister, told reporters on the sidelines of 'Janata ke Darbar mein Mukhya Mantri' programme.

Shahi, for whom Maharajganj bypoll was first venture into electoral politics, said he got only one month time for the elections and could not properly manage the poll. "There was no polling agent for me in as many as 400 booths," he said.
