The India TV-CNX Exit Poll has predicted a massive win for the NDA in Bihar with a total of 15 seats for the BJP and 13 seats for the Janata Dal United.
However, JDU will emerge stronger than BJP as its seat tally is likely to rise to 13 from just 2 in 2014 Lok Sabha elections. BJP had secured victory on 22 seats in the 2014 election, but is likely to get reduced to 15 this time around.
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) is likley to bag 5 seats while its Mahagathbandhan ally Congress is predicted to win 2 seats.
India TV-CNX Exit Poll predicts that vote share of RJD and Congress will fall by 3.71 per cent and 1.44 per cent respectively.
In 2014 Lok Sabha election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 22 seats in Bihar. This was followed by Lok Janshakti Party (6), RJD at 4 and the rest were won by smaller parties in the state.
