ABP News Opinion Poll: BJP Likely To Sweep Haryana Assembly Elections With 83 Seats
In yet another massive setback for the Congress-led UPA, the ABP News-C Voter Opinion Poll shows that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is most likely to return to power with a massive mandate in the upcoming Haryana Assembly elections.
Looking at the most favourite Chief Ministerial candidate, the current CM Manohar Lal Khattar is leading the race with 40 per cent of the voters want him to resume the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) whereas 20 per cent of the people want Bhupinder Singh Hooda as the new CM of state. Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) leader Dushyant Chautala is also favoured as the CM face by 14 per cent of the people.
Earlier this week, BJP released its election manifesto for the October 21 Haryana assembly polls and said this was a “commitment paper” that represented all sections of society. The BJP, which described its poll manifesto as a 'Sankalp Patra', promised to give collateral free loan of up to Rs 3 lakh to people belonging to the scheduled caste community, if voted to power again. It also pledged to give interest free crop loan of up to Rs 3 lakh to farmers.
