Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, along with his entire cabinet, has tendered their resignations. This development comes after the alliance between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) collapsed. According to sources, the BJP is poised to form a new government with independent MLAs, and a reconstitution of the cabinet is anticipated. The new Chief Minister is expected to take the oath later today.

There are speculations that Khattar might contest in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, with reports suggesting his candidacy from the Karnal seat. Meanwhile, potential successors for the Chief Minister’s position include MP Sanjay Bhatia and State President Naib Saini, with the BJP likely to announce the new Chief Minister’s name soon.

The JJP, which held three ministerial positions in the previous government, including that of Deputy Chief Minister for Dushyant Chautala, is also strategizing its next moves. Chautala is set to convene a meeting with JJP MLAs in Delhi to chart out the party’s future course of action. Additionally, the JJP plans to demonstrate its political strength through a rally scheduled for Hiras tomorrow.

The breakdown of the BJP-JJP alliance stemmed from disagreements over seat-sharing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The JJP sought two seats out of the ten Lok Sabha seats in Haryana, particularly in Hisar and Bhiwani-Mahendragarh. However, the state BJP leadership was unwilling to concede any seats, leading to a deadlock in negotiations.

While the alliance’s dissolution poses challenges, the BJP anticipates potential electoral gains from the split. With a strong Congress presence in the state, the BJP hopes that the division of anti-BJP votes between the Congress and JJP could work in its favor, mirroring the scenario witnessed in the 2019 Haryana Assembly elections.
