While final results for more than 200 seats were declared, counting for the last few rounds continued till late night for the remaining seats.

    Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM emerged as a surprise package, winning all 5 seats. It had won a seat in a by-election in Bihar earlier, but appears to be making significant inroads in the Seemanchal region which has a large presence of Muslim voters.
