It is difficult to predict the winner given the early trends in Haryana as both the BJP and Congress are neck and neck, reports ZEE News.

Counting began at 8 am and BJP raced way ahead of Congress and other parties but after the dust had settled Congress is now neck to neck with the BJP and Dushyant Chautala of Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) is also doing very well and could play a role in forming the state government.

Incumbent Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar is leading from Karnal, former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda of the Congress is ahead from the Garhi Sampla-Kiloi seat.

As the counting started, JJP leader Dushyant Chautala said that both BJP and Congress will not cross the 40-mark in Haryana and JJP will have the key of the State Assembly.

"Na BJP, na Congress 40 paar karegi, satta ki chaabi JJP ke haath mein hogi (Neither BJP, nor Congress will cross 40 seats. The JJP will have the key to form the government)," Chautala told the press.
