Election Results Live Updates: Maharashtra, Haryana Assembly Election Results 2019: The counting of votes for assembly constituencies in Maharashtra and Haryana 

Maharashtra, Haryana Assembly Election Results 2019: It was an all-important day as counting of votes in Maharashtra and Haryana was due. The counting started at 8 am in the morning. Exit polls had predicted victory for BJP in both states. The polls were partially true. As the day ended, it was clear that Shiv Sena- BJP 'Mahayuti' will be forming the next government in Maharashtra. The combine got more than adequate numbers. However, there was some good news for the Opposition camp as well. Congress-NCP combine was able to add to its tally and Sharad Pawar-led NCP emerged as the party within the alliance with a maximum number of seats in the assembly.

However, in Haryana, people did not give a clear mandate to either camps. BJP has the maximum numbers, yes, but Congress was not far behind. Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) has emerged as a potential 'kingmaker' and keys to power in Haryana may well go to the party that will get support from the JJP.

    Aaditya becomes first Thackeray to enter Maharashtra legislature

    Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray, who made history by becoming the first member of his family to take the poll plunge, has marked his arrival in
    Maharashtra politics with a bang and is likely to play a key role in the next state government and help expand his party. The 29-year-old next-gen Thackeray, whom his party wants to be the deputy chief minister in the BJP-Sena alliance government, won with a thumping majority from Mumbai's Worli constituency.

    The Yuva Sena leader is now likely to make his party, which was rooted in the 'sons of the soil' agenda and later embraced the Hindutva ideology, more inclusive and broad-based.

    In the run-up to the polls, he conducted several roadshows, foot marches and raised issues like cutting of trees in Aarey Colony and Mumbai's nightlife and said he wants to make the constituency a "model of development".

    He also reached out to non-Marathi voters in the constituency to romp home a big win.

    Congress wins Jhabua, Chitrakote bypolls

    Victory in the by-elections in the tribal belt of Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh and Chitrakote in Chhattisgarh has given the Congress some reason to cheer after the humiliating show in the Lok Sabha election.

    Kantilal Bhuria of Congress won the Jhabua ST seat defeating Bhanu Bhuria of BJP by over 27,000 votes and Rajman Benzam won the bypoll from the Naxal-affected Chitrakote constituency, reserved ST seat by 17,862 votes against Lachhuram Kashyap of the BJP.

    Bhuria, former PCC chief and former Union minister sustained the lead right through the 25 rounds of counting. Bhanu Bhuria who headed the youth wing of the BJP fought gamely.

The Congress workers had done little to deserve any credit, especially after two successive defeats of the father and son duo in a span of six months.

    Chief Minister Amarinder Singh hailed his party's victory in three of the four Assembly segments, particularly in SAD president Sukhbir Badal's "self-proclaimed" stronghold of Jalalabad, and described it as a total rejection of the negative agenda of the Akalis.

    Congress's Raminder Awla defeated SAD's Raj Singh Dibipura by a margin of 16,633 votes in Jalalabad, officials said.

    Jalalabad was considered to be a citadel of the Akalis as they had represented the seat in the Assembly since 2007. The seat fell vacant after the sitting MLA, Sukhbir Singh Badal was elected to the Lok Sabha from the Ferozepur parliamentary segment in the general election held in April-May.

    Haryana Assembly Election Results: Haryana 'kingmaker' JJP to hold party executive meet

    The Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), which emerged as kingmaker in the Haryana Assembly elections on Thursday, refused to open its cards as the Congress courted it to form government in the state where the polls have thrown up a hung House.

    JJP leader Dushyant Singh Chautala said he has called a meeting of the party executive at 11 a.m. on Friday in Delhi to discuss the party's strategy. His comments came amid reports that he was insisting on the chief minister's post as a condition for a post-poll tie-up.

    Latest trends showed that no party was in a position to cross the half-way mark in the 90-member Haryana Assembly.

    Newcomer Jannayak Janata Dal (JJP) was leading in 9 constituencies and may possibly play the kingmaker, along with Independents, who were leading in 6 Assembly segments.

    "I believe the key to the new government is in the hands of the JJP," said Dushyant Chautala earlier in the day as counting trends indicated rapid gains for the Congress, with the BJP not even likely to cross the halfway mark.
