Dushyant Chautala of JJP writes to Haryana governor, seeks 'immediate' floor test; backs Congress

In a significant turn of events, former deputy chief minister of Haryana, Dushyant Chautala, has made a bold statement indicating that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state has lost its majority. Chautala's assertion came through a letter addressed to the governor on Wednesday, urging immediate action for a floor test to determine the government's stability.

The crux of the issue lies in the recent decision of three Independent MLAs, which has thrown the Haryana government into disarray by rendering it a minority. These MLAs, namely Randhir Golan from Pundri, Dharmpal Gonder from Nilokheri, and Sombir Singh Sangwan from Charkhi Dadri have chosen to extend their support to the Congress party.

The BJP-led government formed just two months ago, has seen its support base crumble as two of its supporting MLAs—one from the BJP itself and another Independent MLA—have resigned from their positions. Additionally, the withdrawal of support by the three Independent MLAs has further weakened the government's standing.

Dushyant Chautala, leader of the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), minced no words in expressing his party's stance. "The government that was formed two months back is now in the minority because two of the MLAs who supported them – one from the BJP and the other an Independent MLA – have resigned," he stated. "Three Independent MLAs who were supporting them have withdrawn their support and have written to the Governor."

Chautala reiterated his party's readiness to support a no-confidence motion against the current government. "The JJP has clearly said that if a no-confidence motion is brought against this government, we will support the motion," he affirmed. "We have also written to the Governor about it."

The ball is now in the court of the Congress party, as Chautala emphasized. "Now, the Congress has to take this step (seeking a floor test). The Congress will have to decide if they are going to take any steps to corner the current BJP government or not."

This political turmoil in Haryana has wider implications, not only for the state but also for the national political landscape. The BJP's loss of majority in Haryana, a state where it had formed the government in alliance with regional parties, reflects a shifting political dynamic that could influence upcoming elections and coalition strategies across India.

As the situation unfolds, all eyes will be on the governor's response to Dushyant Chautala's plea for a floor test and the subsequent actions by the Congress party, which holds the key to determining the fate of the current government in Haryana.
