MCD Results 2017

The ruling Congress finished as the single-largest party, but three short of a majority in a hung Manipur Assembly on Saturday, with the BJP, for the first time, emerging the second largest outfit in the northeastern state where smaller parties and an independent lawmaker now held the key to government formation.

As it happened.

QUICK RECAP | The BJP is headed for a stunning victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand and is locked in a close contest in Goa and Manipur with the Congress. The latter has won Punjab where it was certain to form the government. Celebrations are underway outside BJP offices in Lucknow and Dehradun. BSP chief Mayawati has accused the saffron party of tampering with EMVs. She has written to the Election Commission, demanding repolling on ballot papers

Mar 11, 2017 1:19 pm (IST)

These elections were pitched as a referendum on the Modi government’s demonetisation move and as a trailer to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections

Mar 11, 2017 1:16 pm (IST)

The picture is quite clear now: It’s the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, and the Congress in Punjab. The two states that might throw up a hung verdict are Manipur and Goa. In Manipur, the Congress and the BJP are neck-and-neck with 17 seats each in the 60-seat Assembly. In Goa, incumbent CM Laxmikant Parsekar lost his Mandrem seat. The Congress and the BJP are leading on 10 seats each
