Chandigarh, May 25: Politics makes strange bedfellows and that's what's happening in Haryana. The love- hate ties between BJP and HJC is well- known.

After blame- game, Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC), headed by Kuldeep Bishnoi, son of former chief minister Bhajan Lal, who drew blank on 2 seats, has warned BJP not to 'tinker' with the seat-sharing formula.

According to a TOI report, HJC has decided to field all 90 candidates in the upcoming Haryana assembly polls if their "sentiments are hurt".

Assembly elections in Haryana are scheduled to take place in October this year.

In the post-poll scenario, HJC has revealed that four years ago, both BJP and HJC had agreed to field 45 candidates each in the assembly polls, with the consent of former BJP president Nitin Gadkari and senior leader Sushma Swaraj.

Assembly elections in Haryana are scheduled to take place in October this year.

The report further said that recently in a meeting at Rohtak, BJP has decided to not give more than 20 seats to HJC for assembly polls, after it lost badly in Lok Sabha polls.

Irked by BJP's move, chief spokesperson of HJC and younger cousin of Kuldeep Bishnoi, Devi Lal Bishnoi has warned, "we will stick to our previous agreement, but if any tinkering is done, then BJP will be responsible for it."

On Tuesday, HJC had accused BJP workers of "not working honestly" during the campaigning for the elections.

"Some of the workers in BJP did not work honestly during the electioneering and they did not respect the alliance between Haryana Janhit Congress and BJP. On the other hand, we worked earnestly for the win of the alliance in the state," Renuka Bishnoi, wife of Kuldeep Bishnoi, told reporters.

HJC lost both the seats, Hisar and Sirsa, it contested, while its ally BJP won seven of eight seats it fought for. HJC chief Kuldeep Bishnoi lost to INLD's Dushyant Chautala from Hisar by a margin of 31,847 votes.

Kuldeep had quit as the party president after his defeat while his wife Renuka, the lone legislator of HJC, had resigned from the Haryana Assembly.

"We shall continue our work sincerely, but those who have ditched us shall pay for it. We were disheartened because we did not leave any stone unturned in the struggle for providing justice to the people," she said.
