Chandigarh: Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu today said the Centre would work shoulder-to-shoulder with the next government in Haryana to put the state on the path of progress.
"I want to thank the people of Haryana for giving full majority to BJP. In Maharashtra and Haryana, people supported us because people want that in Centre and in State both work in tandem towards the path of development.
"We will work shoulder-to-shoulder with the next government to put Haryana on the path of progress," Parliamentary Affairs Ministers Venkaiah Naidu, who attended today's party meeting here as central observer in which Karnal MLA M L Khattar was chosen to be as the next Chief Minister, told reporters.
Khattar is likely to take oath on October 26 as the next Chief Minister of Haryana and first from the party.
Naidu said people have full faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership and they want to strengthen his hands.
