Update 8.00 am: The vote counting of Maharashtra and Haryana Assembly Elections 2014 have finally begun.

In Maharashtra, there were many upheavals as the state witnessed a different scenario altogether. Two major alliances broke after seat-sharing dispute. The so-called saffron alliance of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – Shiv Sena (SS) and Indian National Congress (INC) – National Congress Party (NCP) broke over the matter of seat-sharing and chief ministerial candidate.

In Haryana, the BJP made a bold move of separating itself from its Lok Sabha election ally HJC and contested the Haryana Assembly Elections 2014 on its own. Party president Amit Shah led from the front and ensured that the elections, like always, aren’t marred by the caste-factor.

The exit polls clearly indicate that the BJP is up for the grabs in Haryana also. Not only the party will get a majority but also will be able to form the government of their own. The full results will be out by evening and a clearer picture as to which party will form the next government will be known.
