BJP-Sena back, but shaken by Pawar, losses in Vidarbha and Marathwada

The ruling BJP-Shiv Sena alliance returned to power in Maharashtra Thursday, winning 157 of the 288 seats in the state assembly. But the poll outcome is a major setback for the BJP which could win 103 seats, way below its ambitious target of crossing the 144 half-way mark on its own, and 19 less than its strength of 122 members in the previous House. As the results came in, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis conceded his party’s failure to contain “rebels” which, he said, held back the BJP from reaching its target. As many as 30 rebels (of the BJP-Sena) have adversely affected the electoral fortunes of the party. READ MORE HERE

BJP bruised by Hooda’s Congress, Dushyant Chautala’s JJP

The Haryana Assembly elections were all about a resurgent Congress-led by Bhupinder Singh Hooda and the newly formed Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) led by Dushyant Chautala. But managing to win 40 seats out of 90, the BJP, under Manohar Lal Khattar, is all set to stake claim to form the government in the state.

Fadnavis first to complete five year term in 50 years in Maharashtra: Modi

PM Modi talking about his days in Haryana said that back in the days the BJP could only fight on a few seats and if they would win in double-digit it would be a huge achievement before 2014. "With a majority of just two seats, the BJP coming back to power after completing a five-year term is one to be praised. Similarly, in Maharashtra, BJP was a junior partner with Shiv Sena, but in the last 50 years, not a single CM has been able to complete five years and Devendra Fadnavis is first such CM in five decades to complete his term."

Maharashtra, Haryana Election Results 2019 LIVE UPDATES:

In the 2014 Maharashtra elections, the BJP had won 122 seats, while Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP had secured 63, 42, and 41 seats, respectively. In Haryana, BJP swept the 2014 polls winning 47 out of 90 seats, with INLD emerging second with 19 and Congress finishing a distant third with 15 seats.

Throughout its campaign, the BJP leadership peppered the developmental claims of its state units with a dose of nationalism, with repeated references to Article 370 and the pitch for a nationwide NRC. The state unit of the BJP also sought to raise the Hindutva pitch, demanding the Bharat Ratna for Hindutva icon Vinayak Damodar Savarkar.

In its bid to pin down the incumbent BJP, the Congress leadership stuck to the issue of economic slowdown aside from many of the issues drawn from its Lok Sabha campaign earlier this year—GST, demonetisation, unemployment and the alleged Rafale scam.

The Congress campaign was also marred by factionalism and internal feud in both these states. In Maharashtra, the Opposition campaign was mainly spearheaded by NCP patriarch Sharad Pawar, who took on PM Modi and the BJP. However, the Congress and the NCP failed to hold a single joint rally in contrast to the joint rally held by PM Modi and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai on October 18.
