The reservation given to Jats didn't harm the interests of the any other community, said Sampat Singh, senior Congress leader and party candidate at from Hisar Lok Sabha seat. He was talking to newspersons at his residence on Tuesday.


In reply to a question about the difference between Lok Dal of yesteryears and present INLD, he said, "The party has gone through a sea change for the worst. Chaudhary Devi Lal never believed in family rule. He always encouraged the common workers and offered significant posts to them.

He was my mentor and always sought my advice ahead of his sons. Today, the Chautala family is catering to its members only. From one family there are already three MLAs and now they have fielded the fourth family member (Dushyant Chautala) in the LS elections. Now, INLD is actually Chautala party."

Commenting on HJC-BJP alliance, he said, "Ideologically they are miles part from each other. There are in an alliance but leaders of both the parties are not canvassing for each other.

On Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), he said, " 'Hero' Kejriwal has become 'zero' in Haryana. He claimed that Congress would form the government in Haryana for the third term in the assembly elections later this year.
