NEW DELHI: As the second phase of Bihar polls was underway, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today anticipated a victory for Nitish Kumar and claimed that the BJP, led by Narendra Modi, was all set to "badly" lose the elections.

The AAP convenor said that incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will get another shot at power. Kejriwal has openly endorsed Kumar's candidature.

"As per my information, Modiji is losing Bihar elections badly. Nitishji is winning the polls," Kejriwal tweeted.

Kejriwal had extended full support to his Bihar counterpart's candidature at a conclave organised by the Delhi government in the capital in August.

However, he did not campaign for the JD(U) in the ongoing polls.

Making common cause against Modi, the duo also attacked him for announcing a Rs 1.25 lakh crore package for the election-bound state.

AAP has had to walk a tightrope in supporting Nitish as his party JD(U) is part of a grand alliance of which Lalu Prasad-led RJD is also a part.
