Bengaluru: The states of Maharashtra and Haryana will go to poll on October 21. The results will be announced on October 24. 

We have compiled a list of important candidates who are in the poll fray, their parties and their constituencies. 

The list for Maharashtra is here. 



The list for Haryana is here. 



In Maharashtra, the total number of assembly seats is 288 while in Haryana, it is 90. 

As per an opinion poll conducted by Jan Ki Baat, BJP will romp home in both Maharashtra and Haryana, continuing to enjoy the confidence of the people.



While the opinion poll predicts anywhere between 58 and 70 for the BJP, it predicts anywhere between 18 and 12 for the Congress in Haryana.

As regards Maharashtra, the opinion poll gives the BJP anywhere between 142 and 147, the Sena, anywhere between 83 and 85, the Congress, anywhere between 21 and 23 and for NCP, it gives anywhere between 27 and 29.

In the last 2014 assembly elections, the BJP-Sena combine had won 185 seats in Maharashtra while the BJP had won 47 seats in Haryana.

The BJP is fighting the polls keeping in mind the policies taken by PM Modi after taking oath as the PM for the second time, chiefly, the abrogation of 370 while the Congress is hoping to expose the Modi government on its failures, especially on the economic front.

These elections are utterly important because they happen to be the first after Modi returned as the Prime Minister for the second time.
