The BJP is set to form governments in Maharashtra and Haryana in the first round of assembly elections following its landslide victory in the Lok Sabha elections. In Maharashtra, it got majority with ally Shiv Sena, though falling short of the score in the 2014 election. Haryana delivered a split verdict, where the BJP was the single largest party. Sources said the BJP will get support from six Independent MLAs. Calling the results an "unprecedented victory", Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the party intends to "work with the same zeal and dedication for the state's (Haryana's) progress". In Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena, buoyed by a hugely improved performance, is talking of a 50:50 division of ministry berths and a turn at the Chief Minister's post. In the bypolls held across 17 states and one Union Territory, the BJP and its allies won 26 of the 51 assembly seats, the Congress won 12.
