BJP to paint the states of Maharashtra and Haryana with saffron again says exit polls: Exit polls predict BJP to paint saffron across Maharashtra and Haryana once again, but more severely for yesterday's assembly elections. But, the fact many misses is the voting percentage drop in both states compared to their previous 2014 assembly elections. Prime Minister Modi extensively campaigned for BJP in the two states for BJP. He also appealed to the people to vote en masse. However, the people failed to do so.
All exit polls without exception predict BJP win in Maharashtra and Haryana: With the Election Commission's ban to telecast the exit poll results before 6:30 PM, the channels were eagerly waiting to announce the win of BJP in the two states. Maharashtra and Haryana are the two states which went for elections. But after 6:30 PM, all flood gates opened for channels to compete with each other to congratulate the BJP for a massive win in the exit poll results of the two states. Without exception, all the exit polls declared a comprehensive victory for BJP and its allies in the two states.
Maharashtra & Haryana gives BJP – Shiv Sena combine sweeps the oppositions: Out of the 288 seats in Maharastra, BJP is set to win more than 120 seats and the Shiv Sena more than 80 seats. Allied together, they may get more than 200 seats. Without a clear majority of 144 MLAs, the BJP, have to depend on the Shiv Sena to form the government. And, for the next five years only with Shiv Sena support, they can run the government in Maharastra. In Haryana, BJP has predicted to get around 70 seats out of the 90. It gives them a clear majority to form the government once again.
Congress has none other themselves to blame for a pathetic electoral show again: With the Congress and NCP together unlike last time, they still end with inadequate fewer seats in Maharashtra. In 2014 when they contested without alliance, they won 42 and 41 respectively. But allying together they are only to earn less than 80 seats each and the worse is Congress has been predicted to get fewer than NCP. In Haryana, Congress secured 19 seats in 2014 and is now only predicted to reach below ten. Congress has itself to blame. The in-fight in Congress is in its worst time in Maharashtra assembly elections.
Voter percentage drop out: Exit polls may have to wait to be confirmed by the results announced on 24th October. But, the decline in voter percentage in both the states announced yesterday is a concern for the BJP. The average voting percentage in the general elections was 72 %. However, both the states are now in far below that mark with Maharashtra only 60.5 % and Haryana 68 %. In contrast, Maharashtra voted 63.16 % and Haryana whopping 76.54 % back in 2014. Even after the appeal of Prime Minister Modi in the two states, voter percentage has dropped.
