The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has admitted defeat for his governing BJP in a key regional election in Bihar state.

The BJP was running against an alliance of parties linked to main opposition Congress party in the state assembly.

Modi won a convincing victory in last year's national elections, but this poll was seen as a referendum on his economic programme.

However, a spokesman for the Hindu-led nationalist party rejected suggestions the result for the state assembly was a personal blow for Modi, saying the BJP "managed a creditable performance".
