BJP Govt in Haryana: BJP become govt in Haryana with the Help of JJP: In Haryana, the BJP has completed the majority with the help of Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), formed just 11 months ago. The BJP, which was stuck at 40 in the election results, got the support of the JJP with ten MLAs and with this the magic figure of the majority (46) was also exceeded.
However, the BJP had got the assurance of the support of six independents and Gopal Kanda of Haryana Lokhit Party on Thursday itself. Now the number of its MLAs has increased to 57 with the JJP joining. However, the BJP is not serious about taking the support of Kanda in the controversy.
Manohar Lal will be CM in joint government, Dushyant Chautala as Deputy Chief Minister
Under the agreement, Manohar Lal will be the CM in the shared government, while JJP chief Dushyant Chautala will get the post of Deputy Chief Minister. The agreement between the two parties was announced by Home Minister and BJP President Amit Shah at a joint press conference with Dushyant Chautala at his residence late at night. Dushyant and Manohar Lal were also present along with BJP acting president JP Nadda, party’s Haryana in-charge Anil Jain and Union Minister Anurag Thakur. After the BJP Legislature Party meeting on Saturday, both parties will stake claim for formation of new government.
Today we will present the claim of meeting the Governor
Manohar Lal Chief Minister has said that to give a stable government in Haryana, a coalition of BJP and JJP was necessary. On Saturday, we will meet the Governor and submit a claim to form the government. For the formation of government, both the parties can meet the Governor on Saturday afternoon and claim to form the government. This agreement is important for both parties. The BJP will reduce its dependence on independents and with this, Jat politics will get an opportunity to support it, while the JJP will be able to reach power after getting into the electoral fray for the first time.
Events were intensified from the night itself
The political developments in Delhi had intensified since Thursday night to form the new government in Haryana. On Thursday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made it clear at the party headquarters that CM will again be Manohar Lal. When Manohar reached Delhi from Chandigarh on Friday, the independent MLAs discussed him separately. At four in the evening, JJP Legislature Party leader Dushyant Chautala appeared soft at his residence in a special conversation with Dainik Jagran on supporting the BJP with a promise of giving employment to the youth and enhanced pension to the elderly under a common minimum agenda.
Government formation formula
In the new government, the Chief Minister will be BJP’s Manohar Lal. Dushyant Chautala of JJP will become Deputy Chief Minister and two MLAs of his party will become Minister of State.
Hooda also invited Dushyant Chautala
When Dushyant Chautala put forth his minimum common agenda for forming the government, Congress leader and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda accepted it first. Hooda also invited Dushyant to form the government with the Congress, but Dushyant’s younger brother Digvijay Singh rejected Hooda’s invitation, saying that Congress did not have the numbers of MLAs.
Relations with Devi Lal family since the time of Jana Sangh
The history of political relations between the BJP and the Devi Lal family begins from the time of the Jan Sangh. The INLD’s base is shrinking. Dushyant Chautala’s JJP has emerged as the flag bearer of Devi Lal’s legacy. Talking about history, BJP has been instrumental in making Devi Lal and Omprakash Chautala the CM.
On 24 July 1999, after the fall of the Bansi Lal government, Om Prakash Chautala became CM with the help of BJP. Chautala had also installed statues of Devi Lal and Jana Sangh-BJP veteran Mangalsen at Rohtak on a medical turn.
