Haryana Chief Minister News Update: Nayab Singh Saini Takes Charge


March 12, 2024 : In a recent development in Haryana’s political landscape, Nayab Singh Saini has assumed office as the new Chief Minister of the state, following the resignation of Manohar Lal Khattar and his cabinet. This transition comes as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) replaces Khattar with Nayab Saini amidst significant political shifts.

New Leadership Emerges

Nayab Singh Saini, the current Member of Parliament from Kurukshetra, has been appointed as the leader of the BJP legislature group in Haryana. Saini, who belongs to the Other Backward Classes (OBC) community, has a long-standing association with the BJP, having held various significant positions within the party since 1996.

Saini’s political journey includes his election as an MLA from the Narayangarh constituency in 2014 and subsequent ministerial appointment in the Haryana government in 2016. His victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections further solidified his standing within the party. Known to be a confidante of Manohar Lal Khattar, Saini’s appointment reflects both electoral and caste considerations.

In a surprising turn, Anil Vij, a prominent leader within the Haryana BJP, did not find a place in the new cabinet led by Nayab Singh Saini. Vij’s absence from the swearing-in ceremony raised eyebrows, considering previous speculations about his potential appointment as a deputy chief minister.

The BJP-JJP coalition government, formed in October 2019, has been strained recently, leading to its dissolution. The alliance faced challenges over seat-sharing for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, ultimately resulting in the BJP asserting its majority in the state assembly.

With Nayab Singh Saini assuming office, Haryana politics witnesses a significant shift. The new leadership aims to address local issues and tackle anti-incumbency sentiments ahead of the upcoming assembly elections. Saini’s close ties with Khattar signal continuity within the BJP’s leadership framework, ensuring a smooth transition of power.

Nayab Singh Saini’s appointment as the new Chief Minister marks a new chapter in Haryana’s political landscape. With challenges ahead, the BJP aims to consolidate its position and address the aspirations of the people of Haryana under Saini’s leadership.
