Captain Abhimanyu is the Jat face of the BJP in Haryana; He was dispatched to the State by Party President Amit Shah to help win the state. Captain Abhimanyu could have been seen to enjoy that distinct advantage of being the Delhi leadership’s top choice. Amit Shah had virtually endorsed him as the kind of Chief Minister Haryana needs during the campaign. Usually in Haryana where Jats have long dominated politics as the single biggest chunk of voters, which is a big plus point, But the BJP is in dilemma.
People in the state are demanding a clear Jat face as their new Mukhya, and Captain Abhimanyu is a top choice among people. He contested from Narnaund Constituency and won it by a handsome margin. According to locals he has good leadership qualities and is connected to the people he served country as well during his tenure in Indian Army, He has a charisma like our Prime Minister Narendra Modi , majority of the people including Jat and Non-Jat supported him as their new Mukhaya.
