Haryana elections: BJP in talks with two independent MLAs from Sirsa


New Delhi, Oct 25: Two of the eight Independent MLAs, who registered a victory in the Haryana assembly polls on Thursday, were taken to Delhi by a BJP MP, sources said.

Independents Gopal Kanda and Ranjeet Singh were taken to Delhi by a chartered plane by Sirsa MP Sunita Duggal.

Kanda and Singh told the media before boarding the plane that they will support the party which will work for the development of Sirsa.

Duggal refused to comment on rushing the two Independent MLAs to the national capital. All she said was, "It is an internal matter of the BJP."

While Kanda won from Sirsa, Singh, the brother of former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, won the Rania seat.

After being denied ticket by the Congress, Singh had entered the fray as an Independent.

Both Singh and Kanda were likely to extend their support to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), sources said.
