Haryana Assembly election results 2019: Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party to emerge the kingmaker
Updated : October 24, 2019 05:02 PM IST
Jannayak Janata Party (JJP)'s Dushyant Chautala has emerged as the kingmaker in the Haryana Assembly election as the incumbent Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and the Congress seem unlikely to secure a majority.
Chautala has registered a comprehensive win in the Uchana Kalan constituency, garnering close to 60 percent of the votes. He finished well ahead of the BJP's Prem Lata and the Congress' Bal Ram.
The JJP came into existence after a split last year in the Indian National Lok Dal. Most exit polls predict that the INLD, founded by former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, would be decimated in the state.
