"This result is a reaffirmation of the popular faith in the BJP and in the leadership of Modi, who campaigned extensively and led the campaign in both the states," a Bharatiya Janata Party statement said following the parliamentary party board meet chaired by party president Amit Shah. The statement said that the BJP accepts this mandate with a deep sense of humility. "It profusely thanks the electorate of both the states for the trust and confidence reposed on the party. The Parliamentary Board thanks all the party workers for their untiring efforts which led to such a massive victory," it said. It further said that it is heartening to note that the BJP which used to contest elections from very few constituencies in both the states, had contested all the constituencies in Haryana and in 256 constituencies of Maharashtra. Both in terms of popular vote and in terms of number of seats won, we have given our best ever performance in the two states. The elections have demonstrated that people in both the states want a stable and development-oriented nationalist government. "The fact that the Congress, which was ruling the two states, has been reduced to a poor third in both the states, is evidence of its shrinking electoral base," it said.

BJP focuses on government formation, NCP offers support in Maharashtra
After its impressive poll showing in Maharashtra and Haryana, BJP set the ball rolling for government formation in the two states today, as NCP sprang a surprise with its offer of "outside support" in the western state where the saffron party fell short of majority. The BJP discussed the party's strategy ahead at a meeting of the Parliamentary Board, its highest decision-making body. Whereas in Haryana with an absolute majority in its favour, the BJP is all set to form a government of its own, in Maharashtra where it has fallen short of a majority it would require an ally, which could likely be the Shiv Sena. BJP secured 122 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly. At a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the party decided to send central observers to Maharashtra and Haryana to elect a leader of the BJP Legislative Party in both the states. Sources told PTI that BJP Chief Ministers are likely to take oath before Diwali in both states but government formation in Maharashtra may be delayed and will take place after the festival that falls on Thursday. The party is yet to zero-in on its leader in Haryana, where party leader Manohar Lal Khattar and state unit chief Ram Bilas Sharma are in the race among others. Party sources said a meeting of newly-elected party MLAs from Haryana will be held in Chandigarh tomorrow to elect its leader and the new government could be in place in the next three days. The meeting of BJP MLAs in Maharashtra is not slated for tomorrow and may be held in the next two-three days to elect their leader, who will be the Chief Minister. BJP's state president Devendra Fadnavis is the front-runner, the sources added. While Home Minister Rajnath Singh will go to Maharashtra, Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu will go to Haryana. Rajnath will be accompanied by party general secretary J P Nadda to Mumbai and party Vice President Dinesh Sharma will accompany Venkaiah to Chandigarh. Sources also told PTI that BJP is not averse to taking back its old ally Shiv Sena in its government in Maharashtra. A consensus appears to have been reached on taking back the Shiv Sena in its fold to form a stable government in the state. Insiders say the RSS also wants that all Hindutva forces should remain united for the long term. "It is the wonderful blend of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's credible leadership and the organisational skills of BJP chief Amit Shah that have worked in favour of the BJP in both the states," Nadda told reporters after the meeting. The party, however, remained tight-lipped on its strategy for Maharashtra, where the Sharad Pawar-led NCP is more than keen to offer support to BJP. "The people of Maharashtra have not given mandate to any single party. No party is in a position to form a stable government on its own. Keeping in mind the interest of Maharashtra people, we feel we should support the party which can form the government. Maharashtra needs a stable government," NCP leader Praful Patel told reporters. Briefing the media after about two-hour long meeting, Nadda said a two-page resolution was passed by the board, crediting the victory to Modi's leadership and organisational skills of Amit Shah. "The results demonstrate that the people have appreciated the good governance and various welfare measures during the last four months by the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre ably led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has emerged as the most popular leader of the entire nation and won the hearts of the masses," read the resolution passed by the BJP Parliamentary Board. The board also expressed gratitude to voters of both the states, while accepting the mandate with "deep sense of humility", he said. In the resolution, the board said the mandate was a clear approval of Modi's "credible" leadership and the policies of four months, which "took care of all sections of society". The mandate showed the confidence of people in Modi's governance, Nadda said. The board also took note of the fact that Congress has been reduced to third position in both the states due to its "mis-governance and corruption", Nadda said. "The BJP accepts this mandate with a deep sense of humility...The party expresses its deep sense of satisfaction over the results of the Maharashtra and Haryana State Assemblies. This result is a reaffirmation of the popular faith in the BJP and in the leadership of Narendra Modi, who campaigned extensively and led the campaign in both states," the resolution further stated.

BJP to govern Maharashtra, looks for Haryana CM
The BJP declared Sunday it will take power both in Maharashtra, where it finished the single largest group in a hung assembly, and Haryana, where it was poised to get a majority on its own. The Congress was humiliated in both places. For the first time, the Bharatiya Janata Party had a clear mandate in Haryana but the party was poised to win only 119 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra assembly, falling well short of the 145 seats required for a simple majority. But with the NCP offering unexpected "outside support" to it, leaving the runner up Shiv Sena high and dry, BJP president Amit Shah said in New Delhi that his party would "form the next government" in the state. The NCP decision to give outside support could reduce the BJPs need to lean on its estranged and long-time ally Shiv Sena, which it dumped before the bitterly contested Oct 15 polls. Nationalist Congress Party leader Praful Patel said Maharashtra needed stability and so the NCP was ready to prop up a BJP government. With the NCPs expected 42 seats coming its way, the BJP can cross the threshold. The Shiv Sena, which could end up with 61 seats, had earlier said it was ready to make up with the BJP, a sentiment shared by some of its leaders, including L.K. Advani. "I hope the BJP and Shiv Sena will come together," said Advani, one of those who was not happy with the BJP decision to dump its ally of 25 long years after a row over seat sharing ahead of elections. The Congress, which with the NCP ruled Maharashtra for 15 years until their alliance collapsed before the elections, is expected to finish third in Maharashtra with 44 seats. But Shiv Sena spokesman Sanjay Raut claimed that "all options" will still open for his party but he did not elaborate. Not anticipating bonhomie between the BJP and NCP and thinking the BJP will seek his partys aid, Raut said earlier: "Whatever happens, the chief minister will be from our party." The BJP credited the showing in Haryana and Maharashtra to Prime Minister Narendra Modis popular appeal. Amit Shah said the victory in Haryana and the near victory in Maharashtra proved that the "Modi wave" which catapulted the BJP to power in the Lok Sabha battle was still intact. Earlier, Maharashtra BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis said that while no discussions had taken place with the Sena, "if the need arises, we expect our friends to support us". Shiv Sena leader Anil Desai added that the acrimony between his party and the BJP was history. Raj Thackerays Maharashtra Navnirman Sena cut a sorry figure and is likely to end up with just three seats. Independents and smaller parties could have 19 members. The NCP blamed the Congress for the Maharashtra verdict. Former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan accepted responsibility for the Congress rout. In Haryana, the BJP was all set to discuss its chief ministerial candidate after the state voted it to power with a clear mandate. Catapulting from just four seats in the 2009 assembly polls to 46 in a house of 90 members, the BJP will rule Haryana for the first time on its own. Outgoing Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Hooda of the Congress accepted defeat. Said Kailash Vijayvargiya, in charge of the BJP affairs in Haryana: "People wanted a change. We worked very hard. The credit for our success has to go to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah." On the question of the BJP having too many candidates aspiring to be the chief minister in Haryana, Vijayvargiya said: "The party will collectively decide the next chief minister." The Congress won only 15 seats, down from its tally of 40 last time. The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) would be the main opposition in the state with 18 or more seats.
