Speaking to ANI, Gopal Kanda said, “Our stance is very clear. We want Haryana to be on the path of the development just like the rest of the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. Six to seven independent candidates have pledged unconditional support to BJP after talks with their top leadership.”
He also said that his family has a history of supporting Jan Sangh and he is part of it.

“My family has been associated with RSS since 1926. My father fought this country’s first general elections on a Jan Sangh’s ticket so we are a part of their family,” he added.
