Despite of media hype for the party in Bihar elections and vigorous campaigning of Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother , the party failed to woo the Muslim votes .
MIM confined its fight to 6 seats in Seemanchal region of Bihar, Only its Bihar unit president Akhtarul Imaan gave a fight in Kochadhaman.
In rest of the 5 constituencies the party ‘s candidate was in third position or unnoticed. Owaisi accepted his defeat and said it was a disappointment .
According to analyst, Bihar Muslims gave priority to defeat BJP by supporting JDU and Grand Alliance candidates.
