Haryana Election Result highlights | CM to be from BJP, Deputy CM's post for JJP: Amit Shah

Live updates of the developments following the 2019 Haryana Vidhan Sabha election result

Several turncoats and rebels dented the ruling BJP's chances of getting a clear majority in Haryana as results of the Assembly polls were declared on October 24.

Weeks ahead of the October 21 polls, several leaders, mostly sitting MLAs of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

And at the time of ticket distribution, the top BJP leadership preferred

the turncoats over its loyal workers.

As a result, several miffed workers rebelled and entered the fray as independents which dented the traditional vote bank of the BJP and helped opposition parties like the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) and the Congress immensely.

The BJP denied tickets to 12 of its sitting legislators.

On the Rewari seat, sitting BJP MLA Randhir Kapri fought as an independent, however, neither he nor the BJP candidate-- Sunil Musepur could win the seat and it went into the kitty of the Congress.

Among other rebels, Sombir, who had unsuccessfully fought the 2014 polls as a BJP candidate, contested as an independent from Dadri and won. The BJP had fielded wrestler-turned-politician Babita Phogat from the seat.

From Prithla segment, BJP rebel Nayan Pal Rawat won as an Independent while in Meham too, former BJP leader won the election by defeating Congress rival and sitting MLA Anand Singh Dangi.

Adding to the woes of the BJP, many of the turncoats received a major drubbing on several seats.

Satish Nandal, former district president of the INLD, who joined the BJP recently, lost by a huge margin to sitting MLA and Congress' senior leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda from Garhi Sampla-Kiloi.

Former INLD leaders Parminder Singh Dhull and Bachan Singh Arya too lost from Julana and Safidon respectively.
