Oct. 24/2019 – In the first litmus test after the grand Lok Sabha election in April this year, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is all set to form the government in Maharashtra; however, no party is likely to get majority in Haryana, which is heading for a hung assembly.
Though the final result is yet to come in both the states, it is seen that the recent steps of the Central Government in abrogating Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir could not able to lure the voters. In Maharashtra, NDA, either BJP or Shiv Sena, may not secure the seats as in 2014. Now the former is leading at 105 and the latter at 65 seats in the 288 assembly seats.
On the other side, a big blow for the ruling party is seen in Haryana. The Manohar Lal Khattar led BJP is leading with 36 seats in the total 90 seat state. The opposition Congress is giving tough fight while leading at 35 seats. Small party like the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) will hold the key in forming the government. It is leading in 10 seats.
The exit poll results aired by almost all media are going to be false in Haryana case as all predicts for a clear cut BJP government. Also in Maharashtra, the seats to have with BJP alliance and Congress alliance predicted by them is not accurate. In real the BJP is losing everywhere.
