Ahead of assembly election results, BJP expresses confidence

election results Updated: Mar 11, 2017 07:26 IST

The results will be seen as a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies, including the shock recall of 500- and 1000-rupee banknotes – a decision that opposition parties slammed as anti-poor and turned into a poll plank.

A win for the BJP could give fresh impetus to politically unpalatable economic reforms, especially those in the labour sector.
