Manohar Lal Khattar took oath as the chief minister for the second time and Jannayak Janta Party leader Dushyant Chautala was sworn-in as his deputy in the BJP led coalition government.

Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya administered oath to them at a ceremony held at the Raj Bhavan on Diwali. Other ministers of the Khattar cabinet are expected to be sworn-in after a few days.

Former chief minister and Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and BJP working president J P Nadda were present on the occasion.

BJP had earlier sealed a deal with the Dushyant Chautala-led JJP to form the government in Haryana after the saffron party fell short of six seats from the majority mark in the assembly election.

 

In the 90-member assembly, the BJP had won 40, JJP 10, Congress 3, INLD and the Haryana Lokhit Party one each, while seven Independents also won.

Both the 65-year-old Khattar and 31-year-old Dushyant Chautala took oath in Hindi. In their brief media interaction after the oath-taking function, the two leaders said the alliance would provide a stable government.

Dushyant Chautala, great grandson of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal, said the government would work towards the welfare of all sections of the society
