On Modi's broad back, BJP makes history in Jat land

Haryana 2014

Riding on the Modi wave, BJP made history in Haryana by winning seven of the state's 10 Lok Sabha seats. The saffron party's previous best had been five seats in the 1998 and 1999 elections.

The state's electorate had continued the trend of voting for the party in power at the Centre since 1998.

Such was the saffron surge that even new entrants -who were given party tickets at the last minute -won with handsome margins. Dharambir Singh and Rao Inderjeet Singh won from Bhiwani-Mahindergarh and Guragon respectively , with ease.

The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) could win just two seats. The party got about 25% of the vote share.

Congres could win only one seat, with CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda's son Deepender completing a hat-trick from Rohtak.

Much of the blame for Congres's poor showing would be laid at the CM's door since infighting hobbled the campaign. Also, the state government faced many corruption charges, including an alleged land scam involving Robert Vadra.

The most spectacular result came from Hisar where INLD's Dushyant Chautala, great-grandson of former deputy PM Devi Lal, trounced Haryana Janhit Congres president Kuldeep Bishnoi. Voters also rejected former Haryana CM Bansi Lal's granddaughter Shruti Chaudhary.

AAP failed to impress Haryana's voters. Yogendra Yadav lost his security deposit from Gurgaon. BSP also fared poorly, with its 10 candidates losing their security deposits.
