The results has turned out to be in favour of the Shiromani Akali Dal's (SAD) favour who are leading in six constituencies. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is leading in three constituencies and has won in one when AAP candidate Bhagwant Singh Mann opened his party's fortune in Punjab by winning against SAD's Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa by 1.4 lakh vote.
