Dushyant Chautala, Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) leader, who has emerged as a kingmaker in Haryana, will meet his 10 legislators on Friday (October 25) at his residence here to decide on the future course of the party.

The Haryana Assembly poll verdict threw up a fractured mandate with the Congress winning 31 of the 90 seats at stake and the BJP bagging 40 seats. The half-way mark is 46.
He will also meet his father Ajay Chautala, who is currently lodged in Tihar Jail, before taking a final decision on the future course of action.

While till now Chautala has remained non-committal on whether his party would support the BJP or the Congress, party sources said that he is likely to meet Union Home Minister and BJP chief Amit Shah soon.

With 31 seats, the Congress will need the support of both the JJP as well as seven Independents to come to power.
