    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.

    Kanda also asserted that the independent candidates have not demanded any ministerial berth from the BJP.

    A former Haryana minister, he has won from Sirsa assembly seat by a margin of 602 votes defeating independent candidate Gokul Setia.

    The 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.

    Several independent MLAs have already voiced their support for the BJP.
