  • Description

    THE CONGRESS PARTY SWEPT INTO POWER IN HARYANA STATE TODAY (THURSDAY) WITH AN ABSOLUTE MAJORITY IN THE STATE ASSEMBLY AFTER A MID-TERM ELECTION. WITH RESULTS IN 73 OF THE 81 SEATS SO FAR DECLARED, THE CONGRESS PARTY HAD CAPTURED 44, AND NO OTHER SINGLE PARTY WAS IN A POSITION TO CHALLENGE THEM.

    THE POLL WAS CALLED AFTER PRESIDENT ZUKIR HUSSAIN TOOK OVER THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE NORTH INDIAN STATE LAST NOVEMBER, TO END 10 MONTHS OF POLITICAL INSTABILITY.

    VOTING ACTIVITY WAS SLUGGISH YESTERDAY IN POLLING CENTRES THROUGHOUT THE STATE. BUT CONGRESS PARTY WORKERS WERE HOPEFUL AFTER THE RESULT THAT THE VOTING WOULD BE A POINTER TO SUCCESSES IN MID-TERM POLLS LATER THIS YEAR IN THE MUCH LARGER STATES OF WEST BENGAL AND UTTAR PRADESH.
