Indian National Lok Dal(INLD) senior leader and Ellenabad MLA Abhey Singh Chautala accused the Congress government of hatching conspiracy to frame his father OP Chautala and his brother Ajay Chautala.

Chautala who was addressing a rally here on Friday said "With malicious intentions, Congress government misused the powers of CBI and framed wrong charges on my father and brother in a scam which never took place".

Training guns on Haryana Janhit Congress supremo Kuldeep Bishnoi, he said that "Bishnoi who criticise Chautalas on the plank of corruption has forgotten that his father Bhajan Lal's name is synonymous with corruption in Haryana".

On the heavy turnout at the rally site, he said "The presence of party supporters have given a befitting reply to the queries raised by various political parties that INLD have gone weak or leaderless".

Expressing hope that INLD would be voted to power in next assembly elections, he said "Party would work to expose the land scams done by chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda with various private builders".

Stage meant for top party leaders collapsed

The makeshift dais made for senior party leaders for addressing the rally at old bus stand ground collapsed during the rally. Several party leaders including Ellenabad MLA Abhey Singh Chautala and party state president Ashok Arora fell but were not injured. Some other party leaders received minor injuries. Responding promptly, party workers got busy in clearing the mess and arranged a separate dais near the spot. District president Dharmpal Makdoli took the responsibility for the mishap and sought apology for the collapse.
