Just two days before the announcement of results of crucial Maharashtra and Haryana elections, confident Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has begun massive preparations for the result day. Right outside the BJP headquarters, tents are being erected to accommodate senior party leaders and BJP workers on the day. If BJP bags the required numbers to form the Governments in Haryana and Maharashtra, then massive celebrations will take place in central headquarters of BJP which is situated at 6 - A, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, New Delhi. Many exit polls have already predicted comeback of the BJP Governments in both Maharashtra and Haryana.
BJP leader and national secretary RP Singh said, "We are all set to win in both the States (Maharashtra and Haryana). The mood is upbeat in the party. The best part is that in both the States, we have first-time Chief Ministers and because of their good and clean governance, they have countered the caste factor there in both the States. The best thing which is happening in the country is that people are voting on your performance, not on caste factor. In Haryana, 72,000 people got government jobs but not even a single case of corruption was reported. Not only in central party headquarters but massive celebrations will take place in party offices of Haryana and Maharashtra."
While BJP is projected to sweep the State Assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana, the Congress and its allies in both the States have been facing severe political decay as BJP continues to consolidate its foothold. The Republic TV-Jan Ki Baat Exit Poll has predicted many historical firsts which pushes Congress and its allies into a diminished presence in the States. The results will be announced on October 24.
While riding high on PM Modi wave, BJP had focussed its issues of campaigning on good governance, nationalism, and abrogation of Article 370; however, on the other side, the opposition was not only left with any issue to target BJP but also marred with massive rebellion and internal fights. Though the former president of Congress party, Rahul Gandhi, tried to put forth the issues of the party by addressing a few rallies, the newly elected interim president of grand old party, Sonia Gandhi, didn't address even a single rally.
