Manohar Lal Khattar elected BJP legislative party leader for Haryana

Manohar Lal Khattar was on Saturday elected the leader of the Haryana BJP legislative Party, moving a step closer to second straight term as the state's chief minister. Khattar will now meet the Governor to stake claim to form the government, a day after sealing a deal with Dushyant Chautala's fledgling Jannayak Janata Party (JJP). The BJP won 40 seats, six seats short of a simple majority and seven fewer that what it won five years ago. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who was also present at the BJP legislative party meeting said: “We will go to meet the Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya, and request him to invite us to form the government.”
