Haryana Election Results 2019 : Bagging 40 out of the 90 assembly seats in Haryana, the BJP is ready to stake claim to form the government for the second consecutive term in the state. The BJP, which had won 47 seats in the 2014 elections, failed to get majority this time despite its leaders being optimistic about winning over 75 seats in the state. Not only did the saffron party fell short of its “75-plus” target but it also saw a dip in vote share since the Lok Sabha polls, from 58 per cent down to 36.5 per cent.
Dushyant Chautala’s JJP emerged victorious on 10 seats, while Congress bagged 31 seats. While Congress has asked the non-BJP outfits to join hands, Abhay Chautala’s INLD has made it clear that it is going with the BJP.
The Congress may be far away from the halfway mark in Haryana, but the party’s performance in the state polls has made former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda emerge stronger.
After his party lost power in Haryana in the 2014 polls, the 72-year-old satrap had nothing going in his favour. The ruling BJP at the Centre had made alleged irregularities in the land deals during his tenure a major issue and the Congress veteran was grappling with the cases against him.
