The BJP-AJSU Party alliance swept the polls in Jharkhand, winning 12 of the 14 Lok Sabha seats while the Congress and the JMM bagged one each.
Riding a Modi wave for the second successive general elections, the saffron party won 11 seats and its ally emerged the winner in one, results made available by the Election Commission said.
The BJP and the AJSU Party fought the elections in alliance for the first time.
The BJP had won 12 seats on its own in 2014.
The JMM, which contested four seats, won only Rajmahal (ST) seat, while its Mahagathbandhan ally the Congress, which was in the fray in seven, wrested Singhbhum (ST) constituency from the BJP.
Two former chief ministers, Shibu Soren and Babulal Marandi, bit the dust, with the JMM president losing the Dumka (ST) seat to BJPs Sunil Soren by 47,590 votes and Marandi facing defeat at the hands of BJPs Annapurna Devi by a margin of 4,55,600 votes from Koderma.
Shibu Soren had won Dumka seat eight times.
