Bihar is BJP's second major electoral loss, and, given Bihar's status as India's third most populous state, its most significant so far. The group lost in India's capital, New Delhi, in February.
Now, BJP is losing ground in the upper house of India's parliament, which will make it more difficult to secure the two-house consensus needed to pass reforms.
