Manohar Lal Khattar: A Political Journey and His Resignation

A long-term regime of Manohar Lal Khattar regime ends in Haryana on March 12, 2024. His tenure was marked with many reforms and challenges making a bigger impact on his political journey.

His political career as Chief Minister is rememberable because of these events in the city. Which even include the political crises and mishaps in his career that might affected his position and resulted up in the resignation.

So, the reforms that were witnessed are Beti Bacho and Beti Padhao campaign which promoted the education quality of the girls, Implementation of Farm Law which gave the protection to farmers and provided them with the financial aid. New Highway and infrastructure was seen in the city connecting it to other cities and making the transportation easy. And the most important campaign was Swachh Bharat Abhiyan targeting every corner of city and drive the awareness of cleanliness among the citizens.

Then what was the reason behind the resignation? Even though it was a surprising news to see Manohar Lal Khattar resign but there were following reasons that led to this decision. First, the deteriorating relationship between BJP and JJP, led by Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala. And the disagreement over seat-sharing for the upcoming Lok Sabha election. Recent reports suggest that the BJP hesitated to allocate two seats to the JJP, preferring to contest independently. Independent MLAs supporting Khattar’s government may play a pivotal role in ensuring continuity.

Currently, the BJP holds 41 seats in the 90-member House, while the JJP has 10. The ruling coalition also enjoys support from six out of seven independent legislators, potentially positioning the BJP to form a new government in Haryana with independent MLAs’ backing.

Then who rise to power after Manohar Lal Khattar? Nayab Singh Saini an OBC (Other Backward Class) leader, became the new Chief Minister. His selection aims to counter anti-incumbency ahead of the state Assembly polls scheduled for October 2024. Saini’s elevation as the state BJP chief earlier in October was a calculated move to consolidate support among the OBC community and non-Jat segments of the population.

So, what is the future move of Khattar? His decision to contest the Lok Sabha elections from the Karnal constituency hints at a possible shift to national politics. If the BJP secures victory, Khattar could play a significant role in the central government. His proactive resignation allows fresh leadership to steer the party through upcoming elections.

In conclusion, Manohar Lal Khattar’s journey has been eventful, and his resignation marks a turning point in Haryana’s political dynamics. As Nayab Singh Saini takes charge, the state awaits new leadership and electoral battles on the horizon.
