POLLS … Assembly poll schedules for Maharashtra and Haryana to be announced today

NEW DELHI: Assembly election dates for Maharashtra and Haryana will be announced around noon today. Dates for Jharkhand, where also assembly polls are due soon, will be announced later. Indications are that the polls in Maharashtra and Haryana would take place before October 27, Diwali day.
BJP is sure to win Maharashtra in alliance with its NDA partner the Shiv Sena, though there were some problems in the seat-sharing talks this time. The Congress and its ally, the NCP of Sharad Pawar, are yet to formalize seat-sharing plans and the two parties are seeing an exodus of leaders to the BJP side, a likely proof the ground scenario is in favour of the BJP. 
The BJP had won only 122 seats in the 288-member assembly in the last assembly polls, but ably ran government in alliance with the Shiv Sena. However, whether Devendra Fadnavis, a Brahmin from Nagpur, would get a second term as CM, or would be inducted in the Modi government in Delhi, is under serious discussion in the party. The BJP is sure to improve its position in the state assembly this time.

In Haryana, the BJP’s government headed by chief minister Manoharlal Khattar did not work wonders, but the party might return to power due to the perceived failure of the Congress party to boost its chances. There are big questions on whether Khattar, a former RSS functionary close to PM Modi, would get another term in office. The party might look for a replacement after the polls. IHN-NN
