Haryana gets hung assembly, BJP needs six more to form govt23 min read . Updated: 25 Oct 2019, 12:53 AM IST
- In Haryana, the ruling BJP emerged as the single largest party by winning 40 seats
- The Congress, on the other hand, showed significant progress from its performance in the last Assembly elections by winning 31 seats. It had got 15 in the 2014 Assembly polls
Live updates: Haryana on Thursday ended up with a hung assembly with the ruling BJP emerging as the largest party with 40 seats, but still six short of the halfway mark needed to form the next government.
The Congress won 31 seats, the Jannayak Janta Party 10, the Indian National Lok Dal and Haryana Lokhit Party one each. The Aam Aadmi Party, which contested 46 seats, was decimated.
The split verdict triggered hectic political activity. Two independents, Gopal Kanda and Ranjeet Singh, boarded a chartered flight to Delhi for a meeting with BJP leadership, party sources said.
A third Somveer Singh told PTI that he will support the BJP government.
The sources said the BJP is likely to stake claim for another term in the state on Friday.
Eight Haryana ministers lost the assembly elections, which saw just two of the 10 ministers fielded by the ruling BJP returning to the state assembly.
Cabinet minister and five-time MLA Anil Vij retained his traditional bastion of Ambala Cantonment, whereas minister of state Dr Banwari Lal emerged victorious from Bawal.
Vij drubbed Congress rebel Chitra Sarwara, who fought as independent, by over 20,000 votes.
Dr Lal retained Bawal, defeating Dr M L Ranga by over 32,000 votes.
The minister who lost the elections are Ram Bilas Sharma (Mahendragarh), Capt Abhimanyu (Narnaund), Om Prakash Dhankar (Badli), Kavita Jain (Sonipat), Krishan Lal Panwar (Israna), Manish Kumar Grover (Rohtak), Krishan Kumar Bedi (Shahbad), and Karan Dev Kamboj (Radaur).
The BJP had earlier denied tickets to two of its ministers-Vipul Goel and Rao Narbir Singh.
The saffron party's idea of shifting minister Karan Dev Kamboj from Indri to Raduar also failed to yield positive results.
Khattar retained his Karnal constituency.
Around 68.3% exercised their voting rights in Haryana Assembly Elections on October 21, according to the Election Commission.
