On Tuesday afternoon, the newly elected legislators will elect the CM. A 47-year-old former Army man who has been a national BJP spokesperson, said, “the national leadership will decide.”
Captain Abhimanyu could have enjoyed the distinct advantage of being the Delhi leadership’s top choice. He is a Jat. In a state where Jats have for long dominated politics as the single biggest chunk of voters, which is a big plus point for him. But, it did not do well in Jat-dominated areas like Sirsa, Hisar, Bhiwandi and Jinda in south Haryana. Only six of the 25 Jat candidates it fielded won.
ML Khattar, is 60-year-old and is an unmarried former RSS pracharak, who was deputed to the BJP long ago. He was the chairman of the party’s campaign committee for Haryana in the national elections.
