Haryana trust vote News Updates: No-confidence motion moved by the Congress against the Khattar govt was defeated in Assembly. IN 90-member House, 55 votes were cast for the ruling government of Manohar Lal Khattar. Ahead of the trust vote, JJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala had said that his party would back the government and defeat the motion moved by the Congress.
Speaking in the Assembly, CM Khattar today said: “No Confidence’ is Congress’ culture. When the party loses polls, there’s no confidence on EVMs; for surgical strikes, it asked for evidence. ‘Alochana for sake of alochana nahi karni chahiye’. If Congress is in power, all is well, but if it’s BJP, then not.” He also said that ‘Mistrust culture’ was an old Congress tradition. “Though this mistrust can be seen within the party, with PC Chacko leaving the party (today). Sometimes it’s G-23 or mistrust between Surjewala or Hooda sahab in the State,” he said.
In the 90-member Assembly of Haryana, the BJP has 40 legislators, Congress 30 and JJP 10. There are five independent candidates. A party needs 46 seats to get a majority in the House. In the current scenario, the JJP is the kingmaker and that is why its members are under tremendous pressure from the farmer unions that have been protesting in front of their house, offices and blocking their roads in their respective constituencies.
