Opposition parties remains in shambles in both states. In Haryana, Congress fails to fetch respectable numbers while INLD looks nothing more than a spent force, however, JJP is seen getting a fair share of seats.

In Maharashtra, the Congress-NCP combine, already on the wane, fail to put counter to BJP-Sena alliance despite hostility in the saffron alliance. Fadnavis-led government seems to have got clear mandate from the public for second term.
