Ending alliance with the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) would prove a blessing in disguise for the Bharatiya Janata Party in the assembly elections, former Uttarakhand chief minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, BJP parliamentarian from Haridwar, on Monday stated here.
The three-year alliance ended on a sour note after the Lok Sabha elections over the seat-sharing formula in the assembly contest. BJP leader Nishank, who has campaigned in poll-bound Haryana, said: “The state voters have seen the tenures of the Congress as well as the INLD (Indian National Lok Dal) and now they want to give the BJP a chance.”
Nishank, also a noted writer, accused the Congress regime of wresting land from the farmers for purpose not served yet. “Haryana has been subjected to lopsided development, which has led to widespread resentment,” he said.
