BJP got a fractured mandate in Maharashtra Assembly elections 2014 after contesting in Maharashtra after ending its 25-year alliance, and has got 122 seats, while the magic figure is 145. BJP is now forced to consider the option of allying with another party.
Riding a Modi wave, BJP, which contested Assembly polls on its own in Haryana for the first time, is set to form the new government. BJP created history in Haryana by securing a clear majority on its own. The Congress was humiliated in both Haryana and Maharashtra, which they had made it their own for two and three consecutive terms respectively.
The exit polls for Maharashtra and Haryana clearly show that BJP is going to be the largest party in both the states. At least two of the exit polls say that in Haryana BJP may get the magic number i.e. 46 of total 90 assembly seats.
