New Delhi: Five Independent MLAs, along with Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Haryana in-charge Anil Jain, met the party’s working president, JP Nadda, at his residence here Friday to finalise the modalities of government formation, sources said.
The five Independent legislators – Dharampal Gondan, Nayanpal Rawat, Sombir Sangwan, Rakesh Daulatabad and Randheer Golan – told the BJP’s working president that they were ready to extend their support to the saffron party, BJP leader Jawahar Yadav said.
“These Independent MLAs reached JP Nadda’s house with an intention to extend support to the BJP government,” Yadav, who accompanied the MLAs, said.
“We have come here to extend our support to the Khattar government in Haryana,” Rawat, who was elected from Prithla, said.
The Haryana Assembly polls threw up a hung verdict Thursday with the ruling BJP emerging as the single-largest party with 40 seats, but falling six short of the majority mark of 46 in the 90-member House.
