Patna: More than Narendra Modi's appeal, the BJP seems to be banking on the caste arithmetic when the last lot of six Lok Sabha seats in Bihar go to the polls Monday.


The Bharatiya Janata Party had won two of the six constituencies in 2009 in alliance with the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) which too won from two places.

The Monday balloting will be crucial for the BJP to counter a resurgent Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) of Lalu Prasad and to push Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JD-U to the third spot.

The BJP and the JD-U, which ended its 17-year alliance with the BJP last year, are contesting the election without each other's support for the first time since 1996.
