“Choose Duryodhan or Pandavas.” This is what Ajay Singh Chautala said while addressing workers at INLD’s Jhajjar office. He said: “The current situation in INLD is like Mahabharat….whether you would like to choose the Pandavas or Duryodhan,” he said. However, he did not name anyone.
The imprisoned leader stepped out of the Tihar Jail on Monday on a two-week parole. He started a statewide tour to consult the party workers to build public opinion in favour of his expelled sons Dushyant and Digvijay.
Dushyant and Digvijay were expelled from the primary membership of the party by grandfather Om Prakash Chautala. They were expelled on the grounds of indiscipline and spreading disaffection within the party. This happened during the birth anniversary celebrations of former deputy Prime Minister and their great-grandfather Devi Lal.
“We neither want any empire…nor any power… all we want is respect for our workers,” he said as per a report which appeared in The Hindustan Times.
Ajay said INLD was nobody’s personal wealth and it belonged to every worker of the party. “We will not let INLD become anyone person’s party. My father has taught me to snatch my rights and I will fight for them,” he said.
Ajay, who had come to INLD’s Jhajjar office after two years, was welcomed by a large gathering who raised slogans, calling his son Dushyant Chautala as the next chief minister of Haryana.
Ajay Singh said final decision of the battle rests with public. He has also invited the gathering to his rally in Jind on November 17
Enthused with the slogans, Ajay straight away went to the stage and started his address. He started with showing his regards for the party workers and said under his rule, no party worker was ever misbehaved with or treated badly in the party. Soon, he launched attacks at his opponents.
He said the final decision of the battle rests with the public. He has also invited the gathering to his rally in Jind on November 17. At Jind, he is expected to announce the upcoming strategy of his family. He said he will first go to Teja Khera village to seek his mother’s blessings and will then continue his meetings with party workers across the state to decide the future course of action. He was accompanied by his son Digvijay Chautala in Jhajjar.
Ajay is serving a 10-year sentence along with his father following their conviction in the junior basic training (JBT) teacher recruitment scam.
