Indian National Lok Dal MP from Hisar, Dushyant Chatuala on Monday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party national chief Amit Shah for his remarks that if INLD comes to power there would be complete "Goondaraj" in Haryana. Shah reportedly made this remark at a public meeting in Tohana where Dushyant was also holding a poll rally.
Terming the statement by the BJP national chief as a result of his frustration as the BJP badly lost byelections during Shah's tenure, Dushyant said before making such baseless accusations, Shah must not forget that the BJP was a part of the INLD government in Haryana before parting ways in the 2009 assembly polls.
"Shah must clarify that if the INLD was spreading "Goondaraj" when it was in power in Haryana, why did the BJP not withdraw its support then? They could have at least raised their voice against the INLD if it was so. None of the BJP leaders spoke publically during INLD rule now they are targeting INLD only because they are aware that INLD is set to form the next government in Haryana," Dushyant said.
By levelling such baseless charges against former allies, the BJP has proved that it was a party who can form alliance with anybody to get power and then ditch them later. "The way the BJP has ended its alliance with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra was another example that has exposed its real face. It is not sincere to its allies who had stood by them when the saffron party needed them the most," the INLD MP said.
He also targeted Shah by saying the BJP doesn't respect its elders. "Look, what has happened to stalwarts like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi and many others," he said.
