Number game for government formation in the state seemed to have begun by soliciting support from independents.
Congress who is six short of a simple majority in the 90-member Haryana Assembly, has reportedly taken a lead in the government formation exercise as in a late night development six Independent MLAs met Hooda at his Delhi residence.
INLD, that has bagged 31 seats in the poll results is also in the race. Party leader-Om Praksh Chautala has also reportedy written a letter to the state Governor.
With no party getting majority, the seven independents are going to play a key role in deciding the formation of the next government in Haryana.
