The fate of the BJP-HJC alliance in Haryana came under question again after union textiles minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, during his visit to Jind on Saturday said his party does not need anyone's support to form government in the state.
Gangwar, who visited Gurgaon, Jind and Rohtak to take stock of party's preparedness in Haryana ahead of the assembly polls as the state BJP was chalking out a strategy to contest on all the 90 assembly seats.
However, he said the final decision in this regard would be taken by the central parliamentary board in coming days. Later, during a press conference at the residence of BJP national spokesperson Capt Abhimanyu in Rohtak, he said party would not announce the name of chief ministerial candidate before the state polls. Meanwhile, Capt Abhimanyu expressed his faith in retaining the alliance with party's partner for three years in the state polls.
Expressing concern over the dominance of Chinese products in the Indian market, Gangwar said his ministry has written to commerce and finance ministries to keep a tab on import of neighbouring country's product to avoid damage to the economy. He said artificial Chinese products being created in the country was another challenge the BJP-led government would have to deal with tactfully.
