Manohar Lal Khattar was unanimously elected as the leader of the BJP legislative party on Saturday ahead of his meeting with Haryana Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya. During the meeting, Khattar will stake claim to form the government.
He is likely to take oath as the Chief Minister for a second straight term on Sunday. Reports suggested that the post of Deputy CM will be held by Dushyant Chautala’s party JJP, which has agreed to support the BJP.
“The new Haryana government will be stable and clean,” Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, adding, “Manohar Lal Khattar government will provide a smooth government with support from the JJP and Independents.”
It may be mentioned here that the announcement was declared by the BJP president Amit Shah at a press conference on Friday.
