In his letter, he has urged the Governor to immediately call a floor test to prove the government’s majority and if the government fails to do so, President’s rule should be imposed. Looking at the development and the clear stand of the party, i.e., JJP, which does not extend its support to the present government and is ready to support any other political party to form the government, it is clear that the present government no longer has There is no command.

Congress will have to take action

They said Looking at the current political situation of the state, it is clear that the present state government is in minority. In view of this, I have written a letter to the Governor of Haryana requesting him to call a floor test in the Assembly. We do not support the present government and our doors are open to support any other political party to form the government in Haryana.

He further said that now it is up to the Congress to take this step by demanding a floor test and the Governor has the authority to order a floor test to determine whether the government has the necessary strength or not. If it fails to demonstrate majority support, the Governor can immediately impose President’s rule in the state.

They said The government formed two months ago is now in minority as two MLAs supporting them – one from the BJP and the other an independent MLA – have resigned. Three independent MLAs who were supporting him have withdrawn their support. JJP has clearly said that if a no-confidence motion is brought against this government, we will support the motion. We have also written to the Governor about this, now Congress will have to take this step (demand floor test) to see whether the government has the strength or not, it has the power to order a floor test and if it has If there is no majority then immediately impose President’s rule in the state.

3 independent MLAs withdrew support

The demand for floor test has arisen recently due to the departure of three independent MLAs from the BJP faction to the Congress faction. Three independent candidates, who were earlier in favor of the BJP, have now withdrawn their support and extended their support to the Congress. According to reports, former CM Hooda and Congress State President Uday Bhan have informed that Dadri MLA Sombir Sangwan, Nilokheri MLA Dharampal Gondar and Pundri MLA Randhir Golan have announced their support to Congress.

JJP will vote against BJP

Chautala has also announced that his party will vote against the Nayab Singh Saini-led government in case a no-confidence motion is moved by opposition leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

Addressing a press conference, Chautala said, “If the BJP government is toppled quickly, they will provide support from outside to facilitate the fall of the government.” He emphasized that now it is for the Congress to decide whether they will take steps to topple the BJP government or not.

Chautala made it clear that as long as his whip has power he will have outside support and his MLAs will vote as per the instructions of the whip. He further said that if the floor test is held today, JJP MLAs will vote to overthrow the government.

Notably, JJP, an offshoot of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), has 10 seats in the 90-seat Haryana Assembly. In October 2019, the party formed an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to establish a coalition government. However, the partnership dissolved in March this year.
