Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala talks about allying with BJP “for a stable govt”, asserts BJP-JJP will “work together strongly” till next polls, dismisses fears of BJP finishing smaller parties like his, and says reserving 75% jobs for Haryana’s youth is way to boost state’s economy.
Sources disclosed that seven Independents, who had extended “unconditional support” to the BJP, are expecting to be accommodated in the Cabinet or be at least given the Minister of State rank. Out of the seven Independents, six are BJP rebels.
From the amended penalty provisions in Motor Vehicles Act and debt waiver of farmers, to monthly unemployment allowance to youth, 10 extra marks for rural youth in competitive examinations and cooperative bank loan waiver for small traders, there are several issues on which the two parties are not on the same page.
This comes a day after his father Ajay Chautala met his estranged brother Abhay Chautala at their farmhouse in Sirsa’s Teja Khera, triggering hopes of possible patch-up in the family that had split because of a feud that triggered a vertical split in the INLD.
Dushyant Chautala also confirmed that expansion of the Cabinet had been deferred for the time being, saying important issues like 75 per cent reservation for locals in private jobs needed to be thrashed out.
