Two of the eight Independent candidates, who registered a victory in the Haryana assembly polls on Thursday, were taken to Delhi by a Bharatiya Janata Party MP, sources said.
Independents Gopal Kanda and Ranjeet Singh were taken to Delhi by a chartered plane by Sirsa MP Sunita Duggal.
Kanda, leader of Haryana Lokhit Party, who won from Sirsa assembly constituency, met BJP working president J P Nadda at his residence late in the night.
Kanda and Singh told the media before boarding the plane that they will support the party which will work for the development of Sirsa.
Duggal refused to comment on rushing the two Independent candidates to the national capital.
All she said was, “It is an internal matter of the BJP.”
While Kanda won from Sirsa, Singh, the brother of former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, won the Rania seat.
After being denied ticket by the Congress, Singh had entered the fray as an Independent.
Both Singh and Kanda were likely to extend their support to the ruling BJP, sources said.
