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.

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.
