The Congress-NCP have won the Maharashtra Assembly election. The BJP is meanwhile in a state of shock due to its failure to win any of the three states.
While Cong-NCP coalition managed to get simple majority, the Shiv Sena-BJP failed to win even 100 seats in the 288-member assembly. Raj Thackeray's MNS performed unexpectedly well and hurt the changes of Shiv Sena.
But for BJP, the poor performance in Haryana is another matter of concern. It had severed ties with Indian National Lok Dal before elections. The results were shattering as it won just 4 seats.
Though Congress didn't do as well, it is the first time in three decades that a government has been voted back after completion of five year term. In Arunachal Pradesh, the Congress again performed exceedingly well.
The results of the elections have left the BJP leaders in a quandary. The appeal of the party seems to have diminished. Even after anti-incumbency of two successive terms, the Congress managed to win in Maharashtra.
