Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday (June 29) said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will contest the upcoming Haryana Assembly Elections alone under the leadership of Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini, while also exuding confidence that the party will return to power with full majority for the third consecutive term. His remarks came while addressing the BJP leaders and workers during a meeting of the party’s extended state executive at Panchkula. He said that they should have no doubt that the party will not forge an alliance with others for the state polls due before October this year.

The party does not need any crutches, party sources quoted Shah having said.

“Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the leadership of Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini, the BJP will form the government in Haryana for the third time with full majority,” Shah told the workers.

The Haryana BJP posted on X that the home minister expressed gratitude to party workers and said the people of Haryana have made an important contribution in making Modi prime minister for a third time.

In March this year, the BJP replaced Manohar Lal Khattar with Nayab Singh Saini, an OBC leader, as the chief minister of Haryana.

BJP leader Kiran Choudhary said that during his address, Shah infused fresh zeal and enthusiasm in party workers.

Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who is also the BJP’s election in-charge for Haryana, Chief Minister Saini, party’s co-incharge Biplab Kumar Deb and Union Minister Manohar Lal Khattar were present during the second session of the meeting which took place in the multipurpose hall of the Tau Devi Lal stadium in Panchkula.
