Bihar: Eyeing rural voters, Grand Alliance woos farmers, youthsIn total, the exit poll prediction shows an edge for the Grand Alliance in Bihar led by Tejashwi Yadav on incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

The exit poll says the Grand Alliance will win 120 of the 243 Assembly seats in all the three phases, and the NDA will win 116 seats, a clear indication of a hung house.

However, the final results will come after the counting of votes on November 10 as the voters have exercised their franchise and locked the future of thousands of candidates in the ballot boxes in the three phase Assembly elections in the state that were held on October 28, November 3 and November 7.
