INLD will form government in Haryana on its own, claims Chautala

September 19, 2009 17:48 IST
Indian National Lok Dal on Saturdayclaimed that it will form the government on its own in Haryana and said Bharatiya Janata Party, which parted ways with it, will bite the dust in the upcoming assembly polls in the state.

"The BJP will not win a single seat in the Haryana assembly elections as it does not have a public base in the state," INLD chief and former Haryana Chief Minister Chautala told mediapersons in Gwalior.

INLD and BJP had jointly contested the Lok Sabha elections in May this year but both the parties drew a blank.

Chautala said BJP has crumbled in the state where it has lost its credibility by breaking promises. He said BJP had forged an alliance with former Haryana Chief Minister Bansilal but later it snapped ties.

Asked why INLD was with the National Democratic Alliance and BJP, he said it was because of its opposition to Congress. On the humiliating defeat his party faced in the Lok Sabha elections in Haryana, he said that the issues in the general elections and state were totally different.

He claimed that people in Haryana were fed up with the power situation, water crisis and corruption and were waiting to oust Congress, which went in for early polls hoping to cash on its performance in the Lok Sabha polls.
