With a 24 per cent rise in its vote share, BJP on its own is all set to form the government for the first time in the state in which it was a fringe player so far.
    
BJP's vote share rocketed to 33.2 per cent from a meagre 9.05 per cent in the last Assembly polls in 2009, bringing a dramatic victory for the saffron party. It had been earlier playing second fiddle to the regional parties in Haryana, including INLD that has now finished second.
    
The Modi wave crumbled the bastions of Congress, which was in power for the last 10 years with Sonia Gandhi-led party's vote percentage dropping from 35.12 per cent to 20.6 per cent in this election.
    
BJP's tally of seats rose sharply from just 4 in 2009 to 47 in 2014 due to the increase of almost 24 per cent vote share as more than 41 lakh of the electorate voted for it.

The outcome was virtually a mirror image of the Lok Sabha elections held in April-May which had seen BJP capturing seven of the 10 parliamentary seats in the state, leaving two for INLD and one to Congress.
