NEW DELHI: The BJP-led NDA will win at least 140 seats and the JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance can be reduced to 70 seats in Bihar assembly polls, according to a survey done for Zee News.

The survey has forecast that the saffron alliance will win over 50.8 per cent of votes, a rare feat in the state, while the Nitish Kumar-Lalu Prasad combine will have over 42.5 per cent vote share.

It also claims that over 41.2 per cent of Muslims are rooting for the NDA which also enjoys an edge over the grand alliance among Yadav voters.

Muslims and Yadavs are seen as crucial support base of the 'secular' alliance.

The survey, according to a statement, says NDA and the grand alliance will win over 140 and 70 seats respectively and are locked in a "close fight" in 22 constituencies.

The five-phase Assembly elections in the state will be held from October 12 to November 5. The counting of the votes will be on November 8.
