Sept. 21/2019 – Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora today announced the assembly election date for Maharashtra and Haryana to be held on October 21 and counting of votes on October 24.
With this announcement, the Model Code of Conduct has come into effect, which prevents the state Governments to announce new schemes. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is ruling in these places. The election outcome would proof its popularity in the current scenario.
The capacity of Maharashtra assembly is 288 and that of Haryana stands at 90. The assemblies of both states expire on November 9 and 2 respectively.
Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar is quite confident of his party’s win in the upcoming poll. He stated that the people of the state supported the revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir which has demolished the caste barriers. Now the popularity of BJP is overwhelming across the country. BJP has 48 MLAs in the state.
On the other side in Maharashtra, CM Devendra Fadnavis is quite hopeful on BJP’s alliance with Shiv Sena. In the outgoing assembly, BJP has 122 members and Shiv Sena has 63 members. Definitely, their alliance could bring a thumping victory for them.
