Tejashwi Yadav led outfit is leading on 102 seats, while the ruling JDU is ahead in counting on 27 seats. RJD’s ally, the Congress, was ahead in counting on only eight seats. The left parties are said to be leading the counting in three seats.

Political observers feel that the Bihar election is going to be A photo finish, contrary to the exit polls results that demonstrated a clear edge for the GA.

 

However, the latest trends of counting on 239 seats put the NDA ahead of the GA with leads on 120 seats. The GA led by the RJD is ahead in 113 seats.

The BJP is clearly the leader of the NDA pack at the moment. The saffron outfit fielded its candidates on 110 seats and the JD(U) is contesting on 115 seats.

The LJP, which was seen as a threat to JD(U)’s prospects, is ahead in counting on three seats, while others are leading in four constituencies.
