Wanjich, who was short of a majority, finally formed an alliance with Dushyant Chautala's Janayak Janata Party, which had a strength of 10 MLAs. Dushyant Chautala became the Deputy Chief Minister. Chautala discussed Lok Sabha seat allocation with BJP National President JP Nadda on Tuesday, March 11. In 2019, BJP had won all 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana. Now BJP is preparing to fight the upcoming Lok Sabha election on its own; but JJP had demanded two seats.
