After a hung assembly in Haryana post the assembly election results, BJP emerged as the single largest party with 40 seats in bag. With the advantage in hand home minister Amit Shah clarified the air and said that BJP would put claim to form government.
गत 5वर्षों में मोदी जी के केंद्रीय नेतृत्व में खट्टर सरकार ने हरियाणा की जनता के कल्याण के लिए हर संभव प्रयास किये।— Amit Shah (@AmitShah) October 24, 2019
भाजपा को सबसे बड़ी पार्टी बनाकर पुनः सेवा का मौका देने के लिए जनता का अभिनंदन करता हूँ।
मुख्यमंत्री श्री @mlkhattar, श्री @subhashbrala व सभी कार्यकर्ताओं को बधाई।
Addressing the BJP party workers PM Modi and Amit Shah congratulated sitting CM Devendra Fadnavis and Manohar Lal Khattar and wished them luck for the second term. Doing so BJP cleared its further plans and the role of Dushyant Chautala in making CM of Haryana was sidelined. BJP is set to go with Independent MLAs to cover up the numbers.
I thank the people of Haryana for blessing us. We will continue to work with the same zeal and dedication for the state’s progress. I laud the efforts of hardworking @BJP4Haryana Karyakartas who toiled extensively and went among the people to elaborate on our development agenda.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 24, 2019
Yesterday during counting when Congress was looking strong Bhupinder Singh Hooda said that his party would make a claim to form government. However, his aspirations were washed off as Congress slide down to 31.
B S Hooda, Congress: People of Haryana have given their mandate against the BJP state government. All the parties who got mandate against BJP, be it INLD, JJP, Congress, independents or some other party, should come together and form a strong government. #HaryanaAssemblyPolls pic.twitter.com/oCDN9tv6ER— ANI (@ANI) October 24, 2019
Congress put up a surprisingly robust performance, winning 31 seats, while the JJP displaced the Indian National Lok Dal as Haryana’s regional force. Both the parties busted the BJP’s claims of winning 75-plus seats, resulting in a hung Assembly.
Contesting its maiden election Dushyant Chautala’s JJP won 10 seats taking the bulk of seats won by others (apart from BJP and Congress). Once a regional face INLD wrapped up with 1 seat.
Eight sitting ministers of Manohar Lal Khattar government lost elections on their seat with BJP State chief Subhash Barala losing out on his seat as well. While Khattar is called to Delhi it is up to BJP now to decide on the dynamics of the government before moving forward.
