However, sources involved in the deliberations for the last three years say that the Congress should first strengthen its party and then care about its ties with the RJD.

It managed to win only 19 seats while contesting 70 seats with the Grand Alliance and its performance was considered one of the reasons for the alliance’s defeat.
