BJP has won 40 seats in the 90-member Haryana assembly and needs the support of six MLAs to cross the half-way mark to retain power in the state.

Kanda's brother Gobind Kanda had said that Haryana Lokhit Party is in touch with five more MLAs, who will extend their "unconditional support" to the ruling party.

The fate of a total of 1,169 candidates is sealed in the electronic voting machines (EVMs). The state went to Assembly polls on October 21 amid tight security. According to the office of Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), 1,064 male and 105 female candidates are in the fray.

The Prime Minister also highlighted that his government is investing a lot on making the tourist destinations in the country more grand, clean and modern.

"BJP will form the government in both Haryana and Maharashtra where elections are going to take place. Congress is faction-ridden and is embroiled in blame-game. We are going to people on the basis of our work," she said while talking to ANI.

Khattar said that BJP welcomes people who want to contribute for the development of the state and willing to join the ruling party.

BJP had on Friday released the list of name of 40 prominent BJP leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and JP Nadda to lead the poll assembly campaign in Haryana.

INLD leader Vedpal Narang, who is considered a stalwart from the Barwala Assembly seat, Congress leaders Ramswarup Rama and Phool Singh Kheri were among the persons who took BJP's membership today.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday announced to implement the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the state. “We will implement the NRC in Haryana as well,” Khattar told reporters in Panchkula after meeting retired Judge SS Bhalla, who is going to review the NRC process in Assam.

In Assam, a final list of the NRC was published on August 31. More than 19 lakh people were excluded. However, those left out can still apply to the designated Foreigners' Tribunals within 120 days for their cases to be heard.
