Voting for the assembly elections In Maharashtra and Haryana has ended. The exit poll results are expected soon. In both the states, the ruling BJP is seeking a second successive term and hopes for an easy win. The party’s campaign was led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Amit Shah, who attacked the opposition over its criticism of the centre’s decision to scrap Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. PM Modi dared the Congress to announce that it would reverse the decision if it came to power in Maharashtra and Haryana. In its campaign, the Congress attacked PM Modi over the state of economy. Senior party leader Rahul Gandhi said last week that PM Modi had no understanding of economy. For Maharashtra’s 288 seats, the BJP is continuing its alliance with Shiv Sena, whereas the Congress has allied with Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party. In Haryana, the ruling BJP is locked in contest with the Congress, INLD and the fledgling JJP (Jannayak Janta Party) for the 90 assembly seats. The results will be declared on October 24.
