BJP picks Nayab Saini as new Haryana CM

| @indiablooms | 12 Mar 2024, 02:24 pm

Chandigarh/IBNS: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has picked its Haryana unit president Nayab Saini as the new Chief Minister of the state.

Saini was picked hours after Manohar Lal Khattar resigned as the Chief Minister following a crack in the BJP-Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) alliance over seat-sharing talks for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Khattar and his cabinet submitted resignation to Governor Bandaru Dattatreya in the morning.

Saini will take oath at 5 pm on Tuesday. 

Amid cracks in the BJP-JJP alliance, Saini is likely to form a government with the support of the Independent MLAs.

Khattar may be fielded as a candidate for the Lok Sabha elections by the saffron party, some reports have claimed.

JJP, the party led by Dushyant Chautala, allied with BJP after the 2019 assembly elections.

In the last parliamentary elections, the BJP had won all 10 seats which were up for grabs in the state.
