Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) chief Dushyant Chautala on reports of Congress offering him CM post.
Speculation is high that the Congress, galvanised by its unexpected surge, has reached out to Dushyant Chautala. Party president Sonia Gandhi has also reportedly spoken to former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. Reports suggest Congress's Deependra Hooda and Mr Chautala had a meeting last evening.
But rejecting the rumours, Chautala said: “I have not had any discussions with anyone. A decision will be taken only after the final numbers are out.”
The BJP was ahead in 38 of 90 Haryana's seats while the Congress hovered around 32 seats, putting up a strong fight while JJP is leading in 12 constituencies.
The Congress has reached out to Dushyant Chautala, whose Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) is less than a year old but is predicted to win enough seats to count. "The way these trends are showing, it is clear people voted for change," Mr Chautala told NDTV, adding, "The keys to the next government will be in the hands of the JJP."
