The Congress party is positive with the emerging picture in Haryana Assembly polls, after being out of power in the state for five years. Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said, “the issue of price rise defeated the BJP’s propaganda on Article 370” as well as “trends in Haryana are on the expected lines and the hard work of the Congress workers is getting reflected.”

The Congress has said that the BJP’s propaganda on the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir did not work in the state.

Speaking to news agency IANS, Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill said, “Trends in Haryana are on the expected lines and the hard work of the Congress workers is getting reflected in the trends in the state and the Congress is indeed forming a government in Haryana.”

Shergill slammed the BJP for pitching the revocation of Article 370 as the main poll theme, the Congress leader said, “Let me tell you with a sense of responsibility that irrespective of who forms the government in Haryana, the issue of price rise defeated the BJP’s propaganda on Article 370.”

The Congress spokesperson said that the people of Haryana have backed the Congress party and farmers and unemployed people of Haryana have given a “bashing” to the BJP.

“In Maharashtra, the rhetoric of getting over 200 seats of (Chief Minister) Devendra Fadnavis with blessing of (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi is being busted.” said Shergill on Maharashtra Assembly Election where the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance is giving a tough fight to the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance.

He further added, “The imaginary development in Maharashtra has completely been exposed. And now the fight is between the BJP and the Shiv Sena whether Aditya Thackrey or Devendra Fadnavis will become the chief minister.”

On the issue of JJP holding the key to Haryana Assembly as Dushyant Chautala led party in Haryana is leading in 11 seats, Shergill said, “In politics, the kingmaker is always the electorate and no political party is the kingmaker.”

He said the key to the Haryana Assembly whether it is going to be with the Congress or JJP will emerge later, but one thing is clear that “Khattar will not be wearing the crown of chief minister again”.

According to the latest trends in Haryana the Congress and BJP both are leading on 35 seats each and JJP has won seat and leading on 9 seats.

While in Maharashtra, the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is leading on 154 and won 6 seats out of 288 seats. Congress and NCP alliance is leading on 100 seats and won 1 seat.
