The ruling BJP in Haryana is expected to face a no-confidence motion in the assembly today with the opposition Congress claiming that two Independent MLAs supporting the government have withdrawn support.
The exercise, however, is seen as a plan to embarrass the government amid widespread anger over the Centre’s new farm laws. The BJP, which has an alliance with Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party, has claimed that there is no threat to the government.
The Congress motion is likely to pile pressure on the JJP, with the Congress saying it is meant to reveal to the people which MLAs do not support the farmers’ cause. Members of the JJP have admitted that they are being boycotted by farmers in their constituencies.
