New Delhi: In wake of Bharatiya Janata Party's attempt to form government in Haryana without the support of Jannayak Janata Party, former Haryana minister Gopal Goyal Kanda is scheduled to hold a meeting with BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday evening.

Kanda, who claims to have at least 5 independent MLAs on his side, is said to have left for Delhi for the meeting to decide on the chances of giving support to the BJP in forming a government in the state.
