CM Manohar Lal Khattar is expecting to retain power in the northern state which is being challenged by a fractured opposition. After splitting from his grandfather’s Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) will participate first time in Assembly elections.
Things need to look out for
- The Haryana unit of Congress is already in deep factionalism and infighting. Due to this, the unit Chief Ashok Tanwar already left the party ahead of polls. With the ongoing incidents, it would be a serious threat to Congress’s prospects.
- Jats make up around one-fourth of Haryana’s population and the community is politically influential. Congress and INLD have banked on Jat Votes for electoral success but that support seems to be eroding. Meanwhile, the BJP is leaving no stone unturned to win Jat-dominated seats.
- Haryana state is one of the states witnessing agrarian crisis and the concern of economic slowdown and lacking job opportunities already in the mind of voters.
