Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) leader Dushyant Chautala on Friday said that his party has yet to decide whom to support, keeping both Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress on the edge.

“We have decided that we will stand with somebody strong and stable,” Chautala added.

Chautala further said, “we have not spoken to the BJP or Congress on the matter. We will support the party that is ready to work on the basis of the Common Minimum Program.

Speaking after a meeting of his party, the JJP chief said, that neither the BJP nor the Congress is untouchable for us.

The BJP won 40 seats in the 90-member Assembly in Haryana and fell six short of the halfway mark needed to form the next government.

The Congress won 31 seats, Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) 10 and others registered 9.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today morning flew to New Delhi to meet party Working President JP Nadda at his residence.

The BJP is seeking the support of independent candidates to stake claim to form the next government in the state.

Notably, both the BJP and the Congress are making efforts to win the support of the Independents and other parties in order to get the number required to form the government.
