Refusing to accept his expulsion, Dushyant pointed out that neither has his expulsion order been issued officially by INLD nor has the party's national executive met to decide the issue.
Dushyant, who is the Hisar Member of Parliament, and his younger brother, Digvijay Chautala, were expelled from the primary membership of the INLD on Nov 2 by their grandfather, O.P. Chautala, who is the national president of the INLD.
Claiming that he had learnt about his 'expulsion' only through the media, Dushyant said that only the INLD's national executive, or a committee headed by the party president, can take action against him.
The INLD, which is Haryana's main opposition party, could be heading for a split with the fight within the Chautala family coming out in the open in the past few days.
Both Dushyant and Dijvijay are sons of Chautala's elder son, Ajay Chautala.
The action follows recent activities of both youth leaders and their supporters who were trying to project Dushyant as a chief ministerial face in Assembly elections in Haryana to be held around October next year.
"Both Dushyant Chautala and Digvijay Singh have been accused of indiscipline, hooliganism and spreading disaffection within the party against the party leadership during the birthday celebrations of Chaudhary Devi Lal in Gohana on October 7," an INLD statement had said.
O.P. Chautala and his elder son, Ajay, were convicted in the JBT (junior basic teacher) recruitment scam in January 2013. Both were sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment by a CBI court in Delhi. Both cannot contest elections due to the conviction.
The INLD has been managed by Chautala's younger son Abhay Singh Chautala since then.
