National Approval Ratings: NDA Projected To Defeat UPA In Haryana, Here's How

Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

With the Lok Sabha elections 2019 inching closer, Republic TV and CVoter have presented the National Approval Ratings to give a complete national picture as to who will win if polls are held on November 1, 2018. The state of Haryana holds within its fold 10 seats which as per the projections today are slated to be divided this way:

  • 6 seats to the BJP, 3 seats to the Congress party and the INLD holds 1 seat. This effectively means that the BJP has seen a fall by one seat from 2014 while the Congress has gained two seats
  • Seat share wise - status quo remains in comparison with the National Approval Ratings last month
  • In terms of the vote share the story is truly surprising considering the fact that despite being pegged to lose a seat, the BJP is slated to see a 2.1% increase in vote share while the Congress seems to have come a long way with a projected 10.8% increase in vote share   
  • Both the Congress and the BJP have an albatross around their neck when it comes to the state- the Congress in form of the Hooda-Vadra sweetheart land deals and the BJP in form of the sitting Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar under whose regime we witnessed the Dera violence, the Varnika Kundu stalking case, and the horrendous Rewari rape

2018 has been a blockbuster year so far as far as the political landscape of India is concerned. With the countdown to the all-important 2019 Lok Sabha polls on, and with critical assembly elections in five states due in the next few weeks, November may just be the most important month in terms of deciding who will come up trumps in the general elections. Even as the Prime Minister dedicated the world's tallest statue -- the Statue of Unity -- to the nation on the 143rd birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and a few days before that, commemorated Subhash Chandra Bose and the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind Government, a massive war of words was triggered over appropriation of freedom icons. Additionally, the Supreme Court has delayed its hearings in the Ayodhya dispute, and will only decide in January when the hearings will take place. This has caused many among the pro-Mandir bent-of-mind, including the RSS, VHP and Hindu Mahasabha, to push the government to do whatever it can to build the Ram Mandir, with an ordinance on the matter the most frequently stated solution. In the last month has seen heated polemics over the events at the CBI, with the government acting on the CVC's recommendation to send the two top-most officers at India's premier investigative agency -- Rakesh Asthana and Alok Verma -- on leave after they had both accused the other of corruption.

The results of 2019 Lok Sabha elections may or may not reflect the results or scenarios of the state assembly elections, nevertheless, to establish where we stand at present, Republic TV and CVoter has presented the National Approval Ratings.
