BJP confident of forming govt in Haryana


Chandigarh, Oct 19 :

The BJP Sunday said it will form the government in Haryana, with early trends indicating it was winning in 50 of the 90 seats.

“We will form the next government in Haryana. We will get two-thirds majority,” BJP leader Abhimanyu said in Hisar.

A party needs to win 46 seats to get a simple majority in the house.

Election officials counting the mass of votes polled Oct 15 said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was clearly ahead of its two main rivals, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and the ruling Congress.

The INLD was ahead of others in 21 seats and the Congress in 16. The Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) and others led in two and three seats respectively.

Counting of votes for the 90 seats in Haryana began Sunday morning to decide the fate of 1,351 candidates, including 116 women.

A record 76.54 percent of Haryana’s 1.63 crore electorate voted in the assembly polls this time.
