However, things seemed better as time passed and the public finally took to the polling booths. This is when the parties heaved a sigh of relief and focussed on results.

The four-pronged fight between BJP, Sena, Congress and NCP ended with BJP taking a lead in all the three analyses by the Chanakya, the ABP-Nielsen and India TV C-voter.
Haryana too saw BJP heading, between INLD, Congress and others. However, it could well be called as a low-margin win as BJP failed tpo have a clear majority than the others. The table shows how.
