“These things will be decided by the party, neither am I supporter of someone nor do I want to praise myself. The Chief Minister should be someone who can take along with everyone,” he told ANI here.

For the first time, the BJP has come as an alternative and the youth has accepted it.”
“Youth wants employment, government jobs. They have huge expectations and so they have supported the BJP,” he added Counting of votes for the 90 assembly seats in Haryana will take place tomorrow amid tight security arrangements.
