Haryana Janhit Congress president Kuldeep Bishnoi has said the party will take a final decision on alliance with the BJP on Tuesday.


“If the BJP does not invite me to the rallies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Haryana on Tuesday, the message will be clear to the HJC. A meeting of the state executive would be held in the evening and a decision will be taken to go to people for their verdict in the assembly elections,” Bishnoi told mediapersons on Monday.

He added that, “I am ready to merge my party with the BJP if the latter succeeds in bringing water to Haryana through the Sutlej Yamuna Link canal because the BJP is already in alliance with the Akali Dal in Punjab. The issue of SYL should not remain merely a poll talk for the BJP.”

Bishnoi said BJP president Amit Shah has already spoken about the ‘goondaism’ of the INLD and corruption of the Congress but the leaders from both these parties are becoming part and parcel of the BJP by gaining an entry from above.

What difference would remain between the BJP and these two parties, he asked, adding that it is clearly Congress-isation and Lokdal-isation of the BJP.

The HJC chief said, “We have been true to the alliance with the BJP all through and did not allow some BJP leaders who wanted to join the HJC, but the BJP proved it otherwise. I am not serving any ultimatum on the BJP but want honour and place for those leaders who have worked hard with us for the welfare of the state. We do not want those ‘goondas’ to contest election who have landed from helicopters to take advantage of the situation. Such elements always want to be in power, by hook or crook.”
