Lok Sabha Election Results 2024 LIVE: Implications Of Lok Sabha Polls For Haryana Politics

The upswing in the Congress’s fortune in Haryana is very clear from the Lok Sabha results and trends. Haryana had a very keenly contested 2024 Lok Sabha elections. This has caught the imagination of the whole nation. We can infer certain long-term implications of these elections for Haryana politics. Haryana’s politics has once again normalised because the Jat-non jat divide on which the BJP had relied for sailing its boat in the Lok Sabha elections did not work.

This division based on caste was one of the key factors that catapulted the BJP into prominence after 2014. This time, this did not work, and people’s issues took centre stage in deciding the outcome of the Lok Sabha polls. This is considered a positive sign for Haryana society that the divisiveness that occurred after the 2016 reservation movement is losing its steam, and a normalisation of societal relations could be seen.

No ‘Modi Sarkar’ Or Ram Mandir, Modi’s Speech Revisits Development As INDIA Blocks NDA’s ‘400 Paar’ March

As the Lok Sabha result comes out with the BJP not being able to cross the majority mark, PM Narendra Modi for the first time refrained from mentioning his name during his address to the BJP workers at the headquarters.

Although on one hand this is the first time that Modi has become the only Prime Minister after Nehru to become the third time consecutive PM, on the other, the BJP couldn’t reach the numbers they expected. As per the data, in several rallies during campaign Modi had mentioned his name 438 times. But this time, he repeatedly evoked BJP and NDA not the Modi government.

What are the results saying?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to retain power, but vote counts suggest it won’t be the landslide he hoped for.
