As we are witnessing the process of vote counting in both maharashtra and haryana state assembly elections, there is lot of prestige at stake for both congress and BJP, while saffron party would try and retain the power in both states, on the other hand congress is desperate to wrestle out both states from the BJP.
By evening today the picture would be clear as to who will the winner of state elections, Bhartiya Janata party would hope to retain power in both states banking on stupendous performance in recently held Lok Sabha elections. While congress once ruled both the states on consecutive terms would be keen to outsmart its rival political counterpart.
Months before General elections congress surprisingly outperformed bjp in assembly elections in state of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh, in fact they managed clean sweep in Chhattisgarh. narendra modi juggernaut continued to rolled in general elections, he was elected on strong mandate for second term. bjp has campaigned on agendas like removal of article 370 in Kashmir, Passing the triple Talaq bill in parliament, implementing the NRC in whole country.
It would be definitely a litmus test for both national parties as lot of prestige is at stake for them.
