Speaking to ANI, Thakur said, "Whatever Haryana people wanted is happening now. The leadership of the BJP-Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) in the state will bring development in the region. I am thankful to Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the victory in the state. I also thank Dushyant Chautala for doing hard work."
