Amid the ongoing feud in the Chautala family, which steers the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in Haryana, party MP Dushyant Chautala said on Saturday that a conspiracy had been hatched to throw him out of the party. He said he would soon “expose” all those behind the move.
Last week, an official statement on behalf of INLD president Om Prakash Chautala said Dushyant Chautala and Digvijay Singh had been expelled from the primary membership of the party for indulging in “indiscipline”.
Mr. Dushyant Chautala and Mr. Singh are grandsons of Om Prakash Chautala. “I have not received any official letter of expulsion from the party, which is signed by our national president. I am very much in the party,” Mr. Dushyant Chautala told journalists in Chandigarh.
Mr. Dushyant Chautala, who is an INLD MP from Hisar Lok Sabha seat, said that neither had the disciplinary committee of the party convened any meeting with regard to allegations of indiscipline nor had the committee invited him for any clarification. “Disciplinary committee has prepared a report at a closed-door meeting, on which INLD supremo Om Parkash Chautala has not signed yet,” said Mr. Dushyant Chautala. “I have met INLD supremo twice recently and clarified everything to him,” he said.
Mr. Dushyant Chautala without naming anyone, said, ”a few people are trying to break the party by creating a feud between the party leaders and suppressing their voices which I would not allow to happen.”
“INLD general secretary Ajay Singh Chautala has been meeting the party workers and will announce the future course of action on November 17 in Jind,” he said.
Both, Mr. Dushyant Chautala and Mr. Singh, who are sons of Ajay Singh Chautala, were accused of indiscipline, hooliganism and spreading disaffection within the party against the party leadership during the birthday celebrations of Chaudhary Devi Lal on October 7 at the rally in Gohana.
