Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) president and former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala stated that neither he nor his party will support Jai Prakash, an independent candidate contesting the assembly polls from Kalayat constituency.

Addressing a gathering in Kithana village of Kalayat constituency on Saturday evening during his Nyay Rath, he asked the public to vote for INLD candidate from Kalayat Ram Pal Majra.

Chautala, whose visit was apparently aimed at scotching rumours surrounding Jai Prakash's alleged claims, said that Jai Prakash was misleading the people by projecting himself as a candidate enjoying covert support of the INLD.

People such as Jai Praksh do not deserve to be in politics, lashed out the former CM.

Chautala heaped praises on Ram Pal Majra and said that he was an asset to the INLD and was hardworking, strong and honest. He appealed to the people to ensure Majra's victory with a huge margin.

In a scathing attack on the Congress government in Haryana, the INLD chief called it “absolutely corrupt and inefficient".

People like Majra were necessary to throw out such a government, he said.

Speaking on the occasion, Majra said that if he won, he would leave no stone unturned to make Kalayat one of the most developed and prosperous areas of Haryana.
