Counting of votes in the Bihar polls has commenced. Almost all the exit polls have predicted a win for the RJD-led Grand Alliance, which has projected Tejashwi Yadav as its chief ministerial candidate. The elections to the 243 seats Assembly took place amid a bitter campaign run by all parties. Nitish is fighting anti-incumbency this time, while Tejashwi Yadav is seen as a young and promising face. The voting for the Bihar election began on October 27 and concluded on November 7.
