With the dates for the all-important Lok Sabha polls now announced, the various political parties and the citizens of India have complete clarity on exactly when the country will once again undertake the largest exercise in democracy anywhere in the world.
To present a snapshot projection of where the various parties stand at the moment in different states, Republic TV and CVoter have published the National Approval Ratings which present a complete picture of what would happen if elections are held today.
The projections for Haryana have been almost stagnant ever since the last National Approval Rating projections with NDA still leading with 7 seats out of 10, leaving only 3 for Congress-led UPA and none for INLD.
Here are the projections for Haryana:
As far as vote-share is concerned NDA is leaping far ahead with 47.4%, followed by UPA at 33%, INLA at 1.7% and Others at 4.9%.
In 2014 out of the 10 seats, BJP grabbed 7 and leaving 2 for INLD and 1 for Congress
NDA government led by BJP in the past month has established the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at Manethi in Haryana's Rewari district at a cost of Rs. 1299 crore and inaugurated National Cancer Institute in the state, effectively proving to be beneficial.
A parallel CVoter survey has already indicated that citizens' satisfaction with the performance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been on an upswing since the Feb 1 budget where a number of significant announcements were made - especially for farmers and for middle-class taxpayers. This satisfaction index the skyrocketed following India's air-strike against Pakistani terror bases across the LoC. Simultaneously, the satisfaction index of Congress president Rahul Gandhi has spiralled downward in the same time-frame.
