However, on Tuesday, he said, "I had only extended my support to the JJP because it was following ideals of Devi Lal. I did not join the party."
The statement came after his meeting with former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal in Chandigarh.
After the meeting, he said he is a devout soldier of the SAD and did not leave the party to join any other political outfit.
"I want to make it clear to all that my association with the SAD is sacrosanct to me and I could not even dream to ditch my mother-party at any cost," Balkaur Singh added.
But showing complete belief in the legislator, JJP state unit president Nishan Singh said, "Balkaur Singh has shown full faith in leadership of Ajay Singh Chautala and has joined our political struggle."
The JJP came into existence a month ago following a split in the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), after a bitter power struggle between Ajay Chautala and Abhay Singh Chautala, the grandsons of Devi Lal who had founded the INLD.
