Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Punjab & Haryana -

Fol­low­ing its con­vinc­ing win in the Jind by­poll, the rul­ing BJP in Haryana is rid­ing high. Chief Min­is­ter Manohar Lal Khat­tar took the

newly elected MLA Kr­is­han Midha for a cour­tesy call to Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi and later the party lead­ers or­ga­nized a cel­e­bra­tion for the win at Chandi­garh. The newly found con­fi­dence of the state BJP, how­ever, has given rise to spec­u­la­tions of the rul­ing party go­ing in for early assem­bly polls in the state. While se­nior party lead­ers, in­clud­ing Khat­tar, have de­nied early assem­bly polls, the op­po­si­tion par­ties are ex­pect­ing the dis­so­lu­tion of the Vid­han Sabha soon af­ter the bud­get ses­sion this month. The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion is ex­pected to an­nounce the sched­ule for the Lok Sabha polls in March.
