New Delhi/Gurugram:

The BJP and the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) – its alliance partner in Haryana – are headed for a split amid differences over seat-sharing talks ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Sources said that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will meet Governor Bandaru Dattatreya today to submit his resignation.

BJP will form the government with the support of Independent MLAs after dissolving the cabinet, they said.

“We have already extended our support to Chief Minister Manohar Lal-led government. We also discussed the strategy for the Lok Sabha elections. I got the impression that the process of breaking the alliance with JJP has already started,” Haryana Independent MLA Nayan Rawat told reporters after meeting Mr Khattar.

This, however, is not sure if it’s Mr Khattar who will take oath as the Chief Minister again. Party sources said that the veteran leader may contest the Lok Sabha elections from Karnal.

This comes a day after JJP leader Dushyant Chautala met the BJP president J P Nadda to discuss the seat-sharing among the two allies in the state.

In the last bid to save the alliance, Dushyant Chautala will also meet Home Minister Amit Shah today.

The BJP had won all 10 Lok Sabha seats in the state in the previous elections in 2019. The JJP had allied with the party after the assembly polls.
