Khattar was sworn in as the chief minister for the second time on October 27 and Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) leader Dushyant Chautala took oath as his Deputy as the BJP formed the government with the help of the JJP in Haryana.
The BJP, which had won a complete majority in the state for the first time in 2014, when it won 47 seats in the 90-member Assembly, fell short this time and managed just 40. However, with JJP’s 10 legislators and seven independent candidates, it managed to form the government. The Assembly polls in Haryana were held on October 21 and results were declared on October 24.
