Among the four ACs, where the victory margin is less than 1%, the BJP is leading three and the Congress is ahead in one.
Almost 94% of the votes have been counted in Haryana by 4 pm. Because AC-wise voting figures are not available, it is not possible to find out how many ballots are to score in the ACs with narrow leads. These numbers suggest that until every vote has been calculated, the final tally and hence government formation prospects of the BJP and the Congress will remain uncertain in Haryana.
