With all political parties gearing up for next elections, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal on Friday said that the question does not arise of holding the next Vidhan Sabha elections in 2018 and these will be held in 2019 as per its scheduled time.

 However, on the call of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Haryana is fully ready if the elections of Vidhan Sabha elections are held together with Lok Sabha elections next year, said the Chief Minister while talking to the mediapersons after attending ‘Meet the CM’ programme organised on the occasion of ‘National Youth Day’ at Panchkula.

When asked about proposed visit of BJP president Amit Shah in February, the Chief Minister said that Amit Shah’s upcoming visit  had already been finalised during his last year visit to Rohtak. The youth of Haryana would organise rallies on motorcycles and make people aware about achievements of the Government during his visit, he added.

In reply to a question related party’s activities at grass root level, the Chief Minister said that in the democratic set up of the country, BJP is a strong party at the grass root level with 30 lakh members and 30,000 active workers in Haryana.
