Election results 2019: Ruling Bharatiya Janata Party witnessed a semi-sweet win during the Maharashtra and Haryana Assembly election results in 2019 after the closure of the voting count. In Maharashtra, the BJP which was supposed to return with the help of its ally Shiv Sena has successfully won 161 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra. In Haryana, however, the situation was opposite, the BJP failed to even cross the mark of 45 seats, resulting into a hung assembly. BJP was able to receive only 40 seats while the Congress won 31 seats. Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party won 10 seats. Chances are high that it will play a key role in the formation of a government in Haryana.
For the Congress, this election turned out to be a much-needed motivation that had been in miserable conditions after suffering a huge loss in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. A good number of seats shows an improvement in the performance of the Congress and it is no less than a light at the end of the tunnel.
Meanwhile, for other regional parties such as the Nationalist Congress Party and Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party, these elections have proved their strong capability and their relevant position during the election.
Maharashtra’s overall picture
The win of 160 seats with the combination of BJP and Shiv Sena parties, CM Devendra Fadnavis will mark his return to Maharashtra’s chief ministerial post. A 100 seat win with the alliance of the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party showcased not an impressive performance.
However, the Congress and the NCP both witnessed an improvement in their seat tallies. Comparing to the 2014 result, Congress won two more seats while the NCP won 13 more seats. Among other contenders, Independents turned out to be excellent performers after winning 13 seats.
Haryana’s overall picture
With his 10 MLAs, JPP chief Dushyant Chautala could have played a significant role in the decision-making process of forming a government in Haryana.
The Bharatiya Janata Party couldn’t cast its spell of magic in Haryana, however, Congress has blown the trumpet of its existence in the game of politics. With this election, Congress has proved the game is not over yet, the party can come back into action anytime.
