REJECTING any possibility of a merger of his Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) with the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala Tuesday said that the “Chautala families are united, only parties are different”.
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.
Replying to the media queries on a possibility of INLD and JJP coming together in future, Dushyant, without naming his grandfather Om Prakash Chautala and uncle Abhay, said, “They should reconsider what they have done. It is for them to consider who broke the ties. Chautala families are united, only parties are different”.
Dushyant launched the JJP in December 2018 after he, his younger brother Digvijay and father Ajay were expelled from the INLD last year on the orders of OP Chautala.
