The counting of the Bihar assembly polls is underway and the trends show a clear lead for the NDA, with the BJP increasing its gap against the rest, the Opposition is holding onto hope given the peculiarity of counting in this election. Given the special coronavirus circumstances, the Election Commission had capped the maximum number of voters per booth from a maximum of 1,500 to 1,000. This means an increase in the number of polling booths, from where votes are to be counted. It is this which is causing counting to be slower than usual, with only 10% of the vote counted till noon in the state which has over 7 crore voters. As of now there are 11 seats where the margin of votes is less than 200 where there are 23 seats where the margin is less than 500. Will have to wait till late evening to know who will sit on Bihar's throne.
