The research team at Electionsinindia.com and Mint analyse the election results of Haryana assembly segments in general election 2014 and the state assembly elections of 2009

After two consecutive terms, the ruling Congress party in Haryana is facing a difficult time because of the setbacks it suffered in the recently held parliamentary election. However, the voting matrix for the state assembly elections is different from parliamentary elections as the issues and leadership are different. Still, the voting pattern in the general election provides a preview of some trends that are likely to be witnessed in the state polls. Further, the two partners of the winning alliance—the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Haryana Janhit Congress (BL), or HJC(BL)—in the last parliamentary election are now contesting separately. Haryana assembly election 2014 is going to be a four-cornered contest between the Congress party, the Indian National Lok Dal, the BJP and the HJC(BL). There are 90 assembly constituencies in Haryana. The research team at Electionsinindia.com and Mint analyse the election results of assembly segments in general election 2014 and the state assembly elections of 2009.
