Earlier on Tuesday night, Chautala met Union Home Minister Amit Shah along with Chief Minister Manohar Lal. In this meeting held at the Prime Minister’s residence, Chautala informed Prime Minister Modi on the farmers’ movement and the latest political situation in the state. Apart from this, various issues were also discussed in Haryana including textile hub, airport, rail route. In fact, the agitation of farmers on the demand for repeal of new agricultural laws has heated up the politics of Haryana. The pressure on Dushyant Chautala’s JJP is also increasing. Therefore, Chief Minister Manohar Lal and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala reached Delhi on Tuesday to keep the BJP-JJP government in place. The BJP government in the state is running with the support of Dushyant Chautala’s JJP, while many JJP MLAs are also supporting the Kisan movement. In such a situation, both parties have become active to save the BJP-JJP government. However, after meeting Home Minister Shah on Tuesday, Chautala had said that the Haryana government would run for five years and the peasant movement would be resolved soon.
