Bihar polls : With only 1 crore votes counted so far, no clear winner yet
The ruling NDA has gone past the opposition Grand Alliance in early trends for 243 seats of the Bihar Assembly. However, only 25 per cent of the votes have been counting so far and it is too early to call the election in favour of the ruling alliance.
Counting of votes has been tardy because of various protocols in place in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Election Commission said that only one crore of the close to four crore votes polled had been counted so far. This means nearly three-fourth of the votes are yet to be counted.
