Exit polls highlights | BJP-Sena to get 243 in Maharashtra, saffron party to clinch record 75 seats in Haryana: News18-IPSOS

Updates of the exit poll results for the 2019 Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly elections

Good evening! Welcome to Moneycontrol’s LIVE coverage of the Legislative Assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra.

This LIVE blog will bring you the latest updates from exit polls put out by various organisations.

Voting is set to conclude across 288 constituencies in Maharashtra and 90 constituencies in Haryana, shortly. Exit polls are expected to be put out starting 6.30 pm, according to Election Commission (EC)’s guidelines.

Political situation in Maharashtra

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis-led governing coalition is aiming to retain power.

After having a bittersweet relationship with the Bharatiya Janata Party for 5 years, the Shiv Sena has agreed to not only contest along with its traditional ally, but also do so on lesser number of seats.

This BJP-Shiv Sena alliance, commonly known as ‘Maha-Yuti’ is being challenged by Congress-NCP’s ‘Maha-Aghadi’. Both alliances include other partners too.

Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, Prakash Ambedkar’s Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi and Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM are also in fray.

The political situation in Haryana

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP is hoping to retain power.

It is being challenged by a fractured Opposition. Congress is being led by former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. This is the first Assembly election for Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party (JJP). He had formed JJP after splitting from his grandfather’s Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in 2018. BJP’s partner in Punjab – the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) – has allied with INLD.

Some of the other parties in fray are Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Yogendra Yadav’s Swaraj India.
