JJP says party will 'hold key' to forming new govt in Haryana

The Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), predicted to be the kingmaker in the fight for Haryana as counting of votes will get underway at 8 am on Thursday, said that the party will "hold the key" to forming the new government in Haryana.

On Wednesday, its spokesperson Prateek Som said, "My party has always claimed that we will hold the key to forming the government in Haryana. This time, Haryana has gone for a silent voting. People were not very vocal about their choices. The surveys which have been conducted by various agencies are primarily based on the 2019 Lok Sabha election perception. They have not taken into consideration the actual report from the ground."

"I am claiming today again that tomorrow there will be an astonishing result. JJP will play a significant part in the formation of the Haryana government," he added.
