BJP-JJP Alliance Breaks: Cabinet May Resign, CM Khattar, Dushyant Chautala Return Government Vehicles, Will Meet Shah

The coalition between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) in Haryana faces an imminent breakdown ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. The lack of consensus on the allocation of Lok Sabha seats appears to be the primary reason for the rift. While the JJP demanded two seats for Lok Sabha elections in Haryana, the BJP, including its central leadership and state organization, remained firm on contesting all ten seats independently.

On Monday, Dushyant Chautala, the national secretary of JJP and Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana, met with BJP’s national president JP Nadda in Delhi. Following this, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar convened an emergency meeting late at night, where all ministers and MLAs expressed their support for the government and also reached out to opposition MLAs for their support.

After the late-night meeting, CM Khattar summoned all ministers and MLAs again on Tuesday morning. Meanwhile, JJP’s national president Ajay Chautala is engaged in discussions with party leaders and MLAs. Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala, considering BJP’s aggressive stance, has returned to Delhi. He has expressed the need to meet Home Minister Amit Shah.

The political upheaval in Haryana has also put the Raj Bhavan on alert, arranging lunch for a thousand people. According to sources, senior leaders in the state government may resign, leading to the inclusion of new faces in the government.

Preparations Underway for Swearing-in Ceremony at Raj Bhavan

According to sources, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar may tender his resignation to the Governor. For this purpose, inspectors Arjun Munda and Tarun Chauhan are being sent from Delhi to assess the situation. 

Following their arrival, preparations for the swearing-in ceremony at the Raj Bhavan will commence with new entrants. Consequently, meticulous preparations are currently underway.

Independent MLAs have reached Chandigarh

Key Questions and Answers Regarding the Current Situation of the Haryana Government

How Did the Indication of Breaking the Alliance with JJP Come About?

Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala met with BJP’s national president JP Nadda in Delhi on Monday. There was no media interaction afterward. Previously, they used to speak to the media immediately after the meeting. After the Chautala-Nadda meeting, no BJP leader made any statement or gave any indication regarding the alliance. Several party leaders are also in a contemplative state regarding this situation.

Is BJP Afraid of Losing the Government?

No, the BJP holds a comfortable majority. There are 90 seats in the Haryana Legislative Assembly, with 41 belonging to BJP, 30 to Congress, 10 to JJP, 1 to INLD, 1 to HLP, and 7 to other parties. For a majority, 46 seats are required.

Current Scenario of BJP-JJP Coalition Government in Haryana

Currently, the BJP-JJP coalition government comprises 41 BJP members, 10 JJP members, and one independent member, Ranjit Chautala. If the JJP breaks the alliance, the BJP would have the support of 41 seats, 7 from the opposition, and one from the Haryana Lokhit Party (HLP). In such a scenario, BJP would have at least 3 more seats than the required majority of 46 in the Assembly.

Entire Cabinet of Haryana Government Can Resign

According to sources, the entire cabinet of the Haryana government can tender their resignation to the Governor. Subsequently, the Chief Minister and ministers may have to go through the swearing-in process again. Lunch arrangements for a thousand people have been made at the Raj Bhavan.
