Bihar’s ruling JD-U will approach the Election Commission to change its election symbol ‘arrow’ in favour of its previous symbol ‘wheel’, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Thursday in Patna.

“The JD-U will approach the Election Commission for a change of its symbol. There is unanimous agreement in the party on this,” the Janata Dal-United leader told the media in Patna.

JD-U leaders Ajay Alok and Neeraj Kumar say the party lost at least four seats as people confused the JD-U symbol with the ‘bow and arrow’ symbol of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Shiv Sena.

The JD-U contested 101 of the 243 seats and won 71.
