The Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) is likely to formally the break its alliance with the BJP, which has reportedly been ignoring party chief Kuldeep Bishnoi post his defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.
The last straw, HJC sources said, came two days ago when BJP president Amit Shah refused to meet Bishnoi in Delhi. Sources said that Shah kept Bishnoi waiting and later went to attend a meeting, which infuriated the HJC leader, leaving him little choice but to decide to part ways with the BJP. A formal decision in this regard is likely on Thursday.
“Those who are claiming to have a wave in the country should explain why they lost all three seats in Uttaranchal and lagged behind in Bihar,” Bishnoi said Wednesday.
“Shah is claiming he would get Haryana its share of water. I declare that in case he gets Haryana its share of Satluj-Yamuna Link Canal waters, we will merge the HJC with the BJP,” he added.
