"A Grand Alliance is the demand of time, it is the demand of the people. Keep your ego away," Yadav said as the BJP lost the Lok Sabha seats of Phulpur and Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh and Araria in Bihar.
"There is a need to teach a lesson to those who have destroyed the country," Yadav said. The Bahujan Samaj Party supported the Samajwadi Party in both Phulpur and Gorakhpur to avoid a split in opposition vote.
He said the RJD's victory in Araria was not a victory of M-Y (Muslim Yadav) combination, but a victory of everyone -- "from A to Z".
