The Kuldeep Bishnoi-led Haryana Janhit Congress on Thursday snapped ties with BJP, putting an end to the prolonged tussle between the two parties which have been in an alliance for three years now.

Addressing a news conference, Bishnoi launched a scathing attack on the BJP saying it had a history of betraying its allies.

"We tried our best to keep the alliance, the BJP can't be trusted as an ally", he said alleging that the BJP conspired to defeat him in Hisar.

The announcement comes just months ahead of assembly elections in Haryana. The HJC becomes the first ally to split with the BJP after the Narendra Modi government came to power with a big majority.

BJP leaders in Haryana too stuck to their position saying the party was in a position to contest all the 90 seats on its own.

The BJP and the HJC which contested the 10 Lok sabha seats in the state in the ratio 8:2 had a pact of contesting the assembly polls on 45 seats each. Bishnoi was to be the chief minister for the first half in case the alliance came to power.
