The Congress along with its partners is all set to retain power in the three states (Maharashtra, Haryana, Arunachal) that went to polls. While the Cong-NCP combine is on verge of getting majority in Maharashtra, the Congress on its own is all set to regain power in Haryana and Arunachal. 
Maharashtra - Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and party’s points’ man in Konkan Narayan Rane have emerged victorious from Bhokar and Kudal respectively. Union Power Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s daughter Praniti has won from Sholapur Central constituency.  Kripashankar Singh from Kalina, and Amit Deshmukh from Latur City are in a leading path. 
Arunachal Pradesh - It is a clean sweep for the Congress in this Northeastern state. Out of the 57 sets for which elections were held it is leading in the 31 seats out of the 36 seats for which trends are available. The BJP is leading in one seat while others are leading in the four seats. Three candidates have been declared elected unopposed.        
Haryana  - Congress has managed to cross the half-way mark in the 90 seat Assembly. The Congress is now ahead in as many as 46 seats, while the INLD is ahead in 24 seats and the BJP flag flying high only in four seats. Congress’ Vinod Sharma and Savitri Jindal have been declared victorious from Ambala City and Hissar respectively. Incumbent Chief Minsiter Bhupinder Singh Hooda is also leading from Garhi Sampla-Kiloi.  What is turning out to be the real surprise is that OP Chautala is trailing behind  Birendra Singh in Uchana Kalan.
