The home minister insisted that Bahujan Samaj Party had already lost the elections.
"The BSP has lost the game in this election. The desperate BSP is now seeking votes on communal lines," he said.
"The opposition is spreading lies. The BJP is getting tremendous support from the Jat community. I have myself visited several Jat-dominated seats. Regarding the concerns of the community in Harayana, the state government is looking into them," said Singh, while responding to a question on whether Jats are annoyed with the BJP.
