     New Delhi, March 12, 2024: Haryana state BJP President Nayab Singh Saini will replace Manohar Lal Khattar as the Chief Minister of Haryana, who had resigned earlier in the day.

     The Kurukshetra Lok Sabha MP Saini was elected unanimously as the leader of the state BJP legislature party and will be sworn in later in the day, sources said.

     Saini is a low profile OBC leader, who will replace BJP strongman Khattar just before the announcement of the Lok Sabha election.

     The 54 year old OBC leader rose through the ranks in the party and was unanimously elected as the leader of the state BJP’s legislature party at a meeting held at Chandigarh today.
