Exit polls project BJP as largest party in M'shtra, Haryana

BJP was projected in exit polls to emerge as the largest party in both Maharashtra and Haryana Assembly elections stopping short of majority.

The Congress and NCP, which were ruling Maharashtra for 15 years before they split ahead of the elections, were projected to lose heavily while Shiv Sena was predicted to emerge as the second largest party. Maharashtra, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi campaigned extensively addressing 27 rallies, appears to be heading for a BJP government for the first time in the state’s history.
