In a blow to the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and the Congress, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday welcomed Rampal Majra and the grand old party leader Dudaram into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This comes ahead of the crucial press conference of the Election Commission today at around 12 noon. The Election Commission is likely to announce the dates for Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly polls today. The schedule for Jharkhand may also be announced at the press conference. The Model Code of Conduct will come into force after the announcement of the poll dates.
