While Manohar Lal Khattar will be sworn-in as Haryana Chief Minister for second time, Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) MLA Dushyant Chautala will sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister.
Revealing the news about the swearing-in ceremony, incumbent CM Manohar Lal Khattar told the media: “Tomorrow at 2:15 PM, the oath-taking ceremony will be held at Raj Bhavan. JJP leader Dushyant Chautala will take oath as Deputy CM.”
Khattar also clarified that it will be not Dushyant Chautala’s mother Naina, but her son Dushyant Chautala will become the Deputy CM. He also added that the BJP has staked claim to form the government and the governor has invited them after accepting their proposal.
Naina Chautala won from the Badhra assembly segment, defeating Congress candidate Ranbir Singh Mahendra with a margin of 13,704 votes in the just concluded elections.
Dushyant Chautala has emerged as a key player in formation of the new Haryana government after the poll results threw up a hung assembly. Chautala’s 11-month old JJP, a breakaway from the INLD, bagged 10 seats in the October 21 elections.
