Regarding NRI supporting labor, i think it is time to prevent them from buying land in india till they return and settle for more than a year. Such cut in high return investment may win back support to india.

Nope, the estimates always showed BJP in high 70s for Haryana. I think BJP voters became complacent and never came to vote. The voting percent was nearly 5% less than last time. This is the usual trick played by the media. I have seen JJP(Abhay Chautala) winning in SC reserved seats.

I feel all this is because of real estate. Every one is clearing loans with every penny for 10 years due to costly real estate. I asked a friend who was cribbing about gst on cars that will he buy car now if gst was zero. He told no since 80% of his monthly income goes to plot and house loans.
