As many trends show Congress giving a tough fight to BJP in Haryana, the focus is on Dushyant Chautala's JJP which might emerge as kingmaker in the eventuality of an alliance government.

The results for the much anticipated Maharashtra and Haryana assembly election 2019 will be out today. The elections were held on October 21.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which came to power in the Maharashtra state in 2014 is hoping for a similar outcome with support from its alliance partner Shiv Sena. Similarly, Manohar Lal Khattar led BJP is also hoping to get a second term in Haryana.

Early trends are indicating a clean sweep for BJP-Shiv Sena alliance in Maharashtra. However, BJP is facing a tough fight in Haryana against the Congress and the regional party Jannayak Janata Party headed by Dushyant Chautala.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is leading from Nagpur South West by a margin of 2,560 votes. Fadnavis earlier said he was confident that the BJP-Sena alliance will be re-elected in Maharashtra.

Shiv Sena’s Aaditya Thackeray establishes a comfortable lead in Worli assembly constituency where he is making his electoral debut. He is the first Thackeray to face elections.

Former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar has established a lead of 6595 votes over his BJP rival Gopichand Padalkar in Baramati.

Haryana minister Anil Vij, a five-time legislator from Ambala Cantt, is leading from his constituency in early trends.
