Tuesday's development has left the BJP with 40 MLAs in the 90-member Haryana assembly. The party has support of two other independent legislators (Nayan Pal Rawat from Prithla and Rakesh Daulatabad from Badshahpur) and Haryana Lokhit Party's Gopal Kanda.

The Congress, on the other hand, 30 MLAs, BJP's ex-ally Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) has 10, and the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) has one. Also independent legislator Balraj Kundu from Meham, has not made his position clear.

The 10 Lok Sabha seats in the state go to the polls on May 25.
