The Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh state headquarters that are located opposite to each other in Rohtak are witnessing a huge rush of ticket aspirants, with their supporters in tow, ahead of the October-15 assembly elections.
While the central parliamentary board of the BJP has announced the names of 43 candidates recently, a large number of vehicles belonging to ticket aspirants can be seen parked outside the state headquarters of RSS and BJP.
The state Bharatiya Janata Party , which had always played second fiddle to the Indian National Lok Dal till now and won only four seats in the 2009 assembly polls, is hoping to form majority government in Haryana after clinching seven seats out of 10 in the recent Lok Sabha polls.

Prominent among those who are looking after the political affairs of Haryana BJP include Kailash Vijayvargiya, a cabinet rank minister in BJP’s Madhya Pradesh government. Vijayvargiya, an MLA from Mhow constituency near Indore, has been appointed as election in-charge of the BJP in the poll-bound state.
As several political leaders are coming into the fold of the saffron party, the minister said it was quite true that earlier the party did not used to have enough candidates to field on 90 assembly seats but in current scenario they have more than 100 serious candidates on every single constituency in Haryana.
Another senior leader and former minister from Himachal Pradesh, Rajiv Jindal, who has been appointed of the state media in-charge, is also putting up in Rohtak. Former state BJP president and former state minister Ganeshi Lal too has been sparing his time at the state headquarters to put the party on track for its ‘Mission 46’.
A spokesperson of the Rohtak BJP unit said several political personalities from different assembly constituencies of the state have been thronging both the places on daily basis to get in touch with senior party leaders to express their loyalty towards the party and to present themselves as strong contenders for ticket.
