In the blueprint that is being finalised, the ruling BJP intends to get the support of seven lawmakers to cross the majority mark - five Independent MLAs, Haryana Lokhit Party Gopal Kanda and Indian National Lok Dal’s Abhay Chautala - rather than rely on Jannayak Janta Party’s Dushyant Chautala who was aspiring to be Haryana’s kingmaker.

Haryana Election Result 2019 Highlights | Mandate shows people of Haryana want BJP to lead: PM

Hindustan Times, New Delhi | By HT Correspondent
UPDATED ON OCT 25, 2019 06:57 AM IST

A confident Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) tripped, but avoided a fall in elections to the Haryana assembly that it had been expected to win easily. The BJP, whose campaign slogan was ‘abki baar, 75 paar (this time it will be over 75 seats)’, fell short of even a simple majority (46 seats) in the 90-member state assembly, winning just 40 seats in a state where it swept all 10 Lok Sabha seats just months ago. The Congress performed better than most exit polls had predicted, winning 31 seats.The BJP is now looking to win the support of seven independents, one Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and one Haryana Lokhit Party (HLP) legislator each to form the government. There is a strong possibility that Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), with 10 seats, would back the BJP. This would strengthen the likely coalition arrangement.The PM, during his speech at the BJP headquarters in Delhi, did say that it is not easy to win twice and underlined the efforts of CM Manohar Lal Khattar. He also thanked the people of the state for reposing thier trust in the party and said they will go back to the people with their development agenda.Congress has increased its tally and won double the seats than it had won in 2014. INLD in its worst ever performance only managed to retain its Ellenabad seat, bringing down its tally to just one seat from 19 in the last elections.Multiple BJP ministers from Haryana like Capt. Abhimanyu who was the finance minister of the state lost the elections. From the Haryana cabinet, CM ML Khattar and Health Minister Anil Vij were the only ministers who won from their respective constituencies. Congress has claimed that the poll verdict in Haryana indicates that BJP has suffered a moral defeat as they could not relate to the ground level issues which were affecting people. Here are the highlights of the counting and results:

Assembly elections result 2019 highlights: BJP-Sena pocket Maharashtra; Haryana throws up a hung house

Hindustan Times, New Delhi | By HT Correspondent
UPDATED ON OCT 24, 2019 10:38 PM IST

In the first set of state elections after the Lok Sabha polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won a simple, but not an overwhelming majority in Maharashtra, paving the way for the likely return of Devendra Fadnavis to power, provided that Shiv Sena supports him.But defying most expectations, the BJP failed to cross the halfway mark in Haryana, with the state throwing up a hung assembly. This left some uncertainty about who will form the next government and raised questions about the future of incumbent chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, although analysts said it was likely that the party would eventually form the government with the assistance of independents, the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), and other smaller parties.These elections have further reinforced the BJP’s status as the country’s political hegemon. But the opposition surprisingly performed well — particularly the Congress and the JJP in Haryana, and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Maharashtra. This has meant a dip in the BJP’s seats compared to its previous tally in both states in 2014, though, to be sure, the party contested far fewer seats this time in Maharashtra since it was in an alliance.Follow highlights of assembly elections counting here:
