JJP, BSP will fight Haryana Assembly polls together: Chautala

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The JJP and BSP will contest the upcoming Assembly elections in Haryana in alliance, JJP leader Dushyant Chautala announced on Sunday.

"After several meetings of top leaders of both parties, it was decided that JJP and BSP will contest next Haryana Assembly elections in alliance," Chautala said at a press conference along with BSP General Secretary Satish Chandra Mishra.

With INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala being in jail in connection with the teacher recruitment scam, his son Ajay Chautala had broken away from the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and formed Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) ahead of General Elections this year.

The JJP had contested Lok Sabha elections in an alliance with AAP while the BSP had formed an alliance with INLD.

Dushyant, son of Ajay Chautala, had contested LS polls from Hisar but had lost to BJP's bureaucrat-turned-politician Brijendra Singh.
