Days after the BJP-JJP alliance fell apart, the Ajay Chautala-led party on Tuesday announced that it will contest on its own all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana. The decision was taken at a meeting of the Jannayak Janata Party’s political affairs committee (PAC) in Delhi, the party said in a statement.

Lok Sabha polls for all 10 seats in Haryana will be held in the sixth of the seven-phase general elections on May 25. The BJP has already announced its candidates for all the 10 seats.
