Haryana’s ‘out on parole’ former CM Chautala lashes out at Congress, vows to make Mayawati the next PM

Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leader and the former Haryana CM, Om Prakash Chautala, has announced that his party will work for uniting the opposition forces to form a third front ahead of 2019 polls to make the Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati the next Prime Minister.

Chautala is out on a two-week parole from the Tihar jail in Delhi. He and his son Ajay Chautala were convicted in the infamous Teacher’s Recruitment Scam and were sentenced for 10 years jail term under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Chautala while addressing a rally held at Gohana in Panipat to mark the 105th birth anniversary of senior INLD leader Devi Lal urged his party workers to strengthen the party organization so that the party wins the next elections.

During the rally, Chautala lambasted at the Congress party, alleging that the party had conspired to send him to jail. While promising that once the INLD-BSP alliance is voted to power, the old age pension will be increased to Rs. 3000 per month, he also pledged that his party will ensure that the farmer’s loans are waved off and that one government job for each family is provided along with an unemployment allowance of Rs.15000 for educated youth in the state.

While thanking his party workers for keeping the party operative in his absence he said, “When I went to jail, Congress leaders thought the INLD will perish, but I thank all the party workers for working hard to keep the party alive”.

Mayawati sent out a message at the rally confirming that the INLD-BSP alliance is intact and here to stay. BSP’s Haryana in-charge Meghraj Singh, while reading out her message said, “Mayawati has stated that our alliance is strong even as BJP and Congress are making misleading statements about its future as they are worried over the popularity of the alliance”.

Hoping for a political revival after remaining out of power since 2005 the INLD had in April announced to join hands with the BSP for 2019 crucial polls. The INLD had announced to contest Lok Sabha polls and assembly polls in Haryana in alliance with the BSP.

It is notable here that BSP has dumped Congress for the Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh assembly elections and recently Samajwadi party’s Akhilesh Yadav had also expressed displeasure at Congress’ attitude regarding alliances with regional parties.
