    Nayab Saini calls for Haryana trust vote after BJP and Dushyant Chautala’s JJP split | Action Punjab

    ACTION PUNJAB NEWS Desk: Haryana’s newly appointed Chief Minister, Nayab Singh Saini, is poised to demonstrate the strength of the new BJP government in a special assembly session today following the rupture between the saffron party and its ally, the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP).

    A special session of the Haryana assembly is slated for Wednesday, during which Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini will seek to confirm the majority of the newly formed BJP government. This government emerged after the BJP’s dissolution of its alliance with the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP).

    Saini, who assumed office as Chief Minister on Tuesday subsequent to the unexpected resignation of Manohar Lal Khattar, forwarded a letter containing the support of 48 MLAs to Governor Bandaru Dattatreya. Additionally, he requested the assembly session to conduct a trust vote. This development transpired amidst disagreements between the BJP and the JJP, led by Dushyant Chautala, concerning seat allocation for the impending Lok Sabha elections.

    Latest Developments in Haryana Politics:

    1. Nayab Singh Saini, a 54-year-old leader from the Other Backward Classes (OBC) community and the Chief of Haryana’s BJP, was sworn in as Chief Minister by Governor Dattatreya at the Raj Bhawan in Chandigarh. Additionally, four BJP MLAs and one independent MLA were sworn in as ministers during the ceremony.

    2. With 41 members in the 90-member state assembly, the BJP holds a significant presence, further bolstered by support from six independent MLAs and Gopal Kanda, the lone Haryana Lokhit Party MLA. In contrast, the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) holds 10 seats, while the Congress has 30 MLAs and the Indian National Lok Dal holds one.

    3. Before the special assembly session, the BJP is scheduled to convene a legislative party meeting at 10 am, with former Chief Minister Khattar and other BJP MLAs expected to attend.

    4. Meanwhile, Anil Vij, the former home minister and six-term MLA from Ambala Cantt, did not attend Saini’s oath-taking ceremony and was not included in the new Cabinet. Addressing Vij’s absence, Khattar remarked that Vij “gets upset easily, but becomes normal later,” and indicated that Vij would have taken oath had he been present.

    5. There are speculations that Khattar may be nominated by the BJP for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the dates for which are yet to be announced. It is rumored that he may contest from the Karnal Lok Sabha seat.

    6. In response to recent political developments, the JJP announced its intention to contest all 10 Lok Sabha seats and 90 assembly constituencies in Haryana. However, there is uncertainty regarding the continuation of its alliance with the BJP. JJP spokesperson Arvind Bharadwaj stated that an official statement would be issued soon.

    7. The BJP and JJP formed a post-poll alliance in 2019 after the BJP failed to secure a majority with 40 seats. The JJP, with 10 seats, joined forces with the BJP to establish a coalition government. Assembly elections in Haryana are expected to take place later this year.

    8. In light of these developments, Dushyant Chautala’s uncle and lone Indian National Lok Dal MLA, Abhay Chautala, criticised his nephew.

    9. Congress leader and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda alleged that the BJP and JJP conceded defeat even before the elections by dissolving the alliance and changing the Chief Minister. He advocated for prompt assembly polls and called for President’s Rule in the state.

    10. Similarly, Congress leader Kumari Selja condemned the BJP, accusing them of betraying the people of the country, and pledged to deliver justice through the Congress party.
