Beniwal said his party workers in Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and other parts will support the BJP to ensure saffron party candidates win and Narendra Modi again becomes the prime minister.

"My roots have been in the BJP and, therefore, I am more comfortable with the BJP. I took the decision as my workers were in support of this alliance," he added.

Rajasthan has 25 Lok Sabha seats and the BJP will contest on 24 and the RLP on one seat. The Congress has fielded former MP Jyoti Mirdha in Nagaur.
