In another Haryana shocker, BJP drops minister Anil Vij from cabinet after Manohar Lal Khattar

Chandigarh/New Delhi/IBNS: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s attempt to fight anti-incumbency in Haryana, which it has ruled since 2014, has seen another big name being dropped with Anil Vij resigning from the cabinet.

Anil Vij, one of the best-known leaders from the Haryana BJP, resigned after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

Nayab Saini took oath as Haryana's new Chief Minister on Tuesday.

Khattar resigned following a crack in the BJP-Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) alliance over seat-sharing talks for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Five other ministers, who were part of Khattar's cabinet, took the oath with Saini at a swiftly organised ceremony on Tuesday evening, hours after the chief minister and his entire cabinet resigned.

The omission of Vij, who was the Haryana home minister, was even more surprising as there was speculation that he would be one of two deputy chief ministers appointed by the BJP after the post was vacated by Dushyant Chautala of the JJP.

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.
