Haryana Janhit Congress legislator Renuka Bishnoi stunned the audience at Narnaund election rally on Monday when she declared that if the BJP-HJC alliance is voted to power in the assembly elections scheduled later this year, Kuldeep Bishnoi would be chief minister for first two-and-half years and BJP leader Capt Abhimanyu would take over the reins for the rest of the term.

It may be recalled that BJP state president Ram Bilas Sharma had earlier declared that BJP-HJC alliance would have Kuldeep Bishnoi and himself (Ram Bilas) as chief ministers for two-and-half years each in case the alliance is voted to power.

Renuka said, "This area will have two chief ministers, so the development will be double."

The fall out of her announcement was immediate when after the rally, former minister Jaswant Singh, who had joined the HJC last week, declared to quit the HJC, alleging that the party did not have respect for the senior leaders.

Addressing the rally, Capt Abhimanyu, said, "Narendra Modi does not need the crutches of INLD to become prime minister."
