Change is in the air in Haryana: Captain Abhimanyu

Hisar: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday seemed upbeat about winning Assembly Elections in Haryana with party leader Captain Abhimanyu saying Narendra Modi-tsunami helped the BJP in state in a big way.

Saying that change is in the air in Haryana, Captain Abhimanyu, who is seen as the CM candidate, told a news channel that the voters in Haryana were not interested in dynastocracy.

The Bharatiya Janata Party candidate from Narnaund further said that the BJP's organisational structure takes the decision of choosing the CM.

The party knows the ability or limitations of a worker and takes the decision in the best interest of the nation and state, added Captain Abhimanyu.

He further said that the effectiveness of Modi-led government, leadership of BJP president Amit Shah, credibility of ministers like Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, and collective efforts of booth-level workers will boost BJP's probability in Haryana.

The fate of 1,351 contesting candidates will be decided today as the counting of votes for the 90-member Haryana Assembly takes place.

Haryana's 1.63 crore electorate has set a new voting record with over 76.54 percent polling in the state's Assembly Elections, perking up the BJP's hopes to come to power on its own.

With most exit poll giving it a clear mandate, the BJP could come to power in Haryana for the first time. The BJP contested the Haryana Assembly on its own for the first time, riding primarily on the political charisma of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

With no leader being projected as chief minister by the BJP, the names doing rounds are of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who belongs to Haryana, union ministers Inderjit Singh and Krishan Pal, state BJP president Ram Bilas Sharma, senior leader Abhimanyu, Jat leader Birender Singh (who shifted from the Congress to the BJP recently) and Manohar Lal Khattar.
