    After the meeting, Digvijay Chautala, Dushyant's younger brother and JJP's senior leader said the party has been active in the national capital and it has also formed its units there.

    On the question of forming a coalition with the BJP, Digvijay said JJP is running the Haryana government in alliance with the saffron party and it respects the coalition 'dharma'.

    "If coalition talks with BJP will take place, the party will hold the meeting again but the final decision will be taken by party founder Dr Ajay Singh Chautala," he said.

    The party will fight for poor people, farmers and labourers in the polls, he said.

    The JJP, which entered into an alliance with the BJP in Haryana after contesting assembly elections against it, had fought the Lok Sabha elections in the state in alliance with AAP.
