A day after the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC), the political ally of Bharatiya Janata Party in the state lost on both Hisar and Sirsa seats, saffron party's candidate from Rohtak, Om Prakash Dhankar on Saturday said during the introspection meeting of the party, rethinking could be done on continuing tie-up with HJC.

Dhankar said this while addressing a press conference at Jhajjar on Saturday.

HJC chief Kuldeep Bishnoi lost to INLD candidate Dushyant Chautala by a margin of 31,847 votes from Hisar, while Sushil Indora (HJC) finished at third position after INLD's Charanjit Singh Rori won from Sirsa by a margin of 1.15 lakh votes.

Responding to a question raised by a scribe on the future of alliance with its ally, he said the party would rethink on its decision in the wake of changed political scenario in the state.

Talking to HT, he said BJP is a political party and its decision depends entirely on the existing situation and Friday's poll results have exhibited people's mandate to seek change. The BJP had contested elections on eight seats, while its ally contested on two seats in the state according to their seat sharing understanding.

Sources in the party indicated that the BJP, which had aligned with HJC in 2011, is mulling to face the state assembly elections due in the state by October without any support of ally.
