New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Early trends suggest a comfortable victory for the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance in Maharashtra. However, in Haryana, fear looms large of a hung House as neither the BJP nor the Congress seem to reach the majority mark. The counting of votes in the two states, currently ruled by the saffron party, is still underway. 

Stakes are high for the BJP, which is incumbent in the two states and also for the Congress, which is seeking revival following the Lok Sabha poll debacle. Votes are also being counted for the by-elections held in 51 Assembly and two Lok Sabha constituencies across 17 states and one Union Territory.

In Maharashtra, exit polls have predicted a comfortable majority for the BJP-Shiv Sena combine, in fact better than what it performed in the 2014 state polls. The poll of polls has predicted 203-204 seats for the ruling alliance, and 67-68 seats for the Congress-NCP bonhomie.  

In Haryana, most exit polls have projected a comfortable win for the saffron party, except India Today-Axis My India which has predicted a close fight between the BJP and Congress with the Jannayak Janta Party likely to play kingmaker.
