As the state moves towards a hung assembly, all eyes are set on 31-year-Dushyant Chautala's Jananayak Janata Party(JJP), which has won five seats and is leading in another five.
As Congress and BJP are engaged in a close fight and none of them showing signs of achieving the majority mark of 46 seats, Dushyant Chautala is expected to play the role of kingmaker.
Rejecting the speculations that he might play the role of a kingmaker in this Assembly election in Haryana, Chautala said, "I am neither the king nor the king-maker but I am here to serve people."
Meanwhile, Haryana Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda has urged all the non-BJP parties to unite and form the next government.
"I urge all the non-BJP parties to come together and form the next state government," Hooda said.
BJP state president Subhash Barala has stepped down from his party post amid the counting of votes.
