“INLD leaders had booked air tickets for Patna, Bengaluru and Mumbai with hopes of attending INDIA bloc meeting, but they were not invited. INLD is even ready to invite their arch rival Bhupinder Singh Hooda to the Kaithal rally on September 25 to mark birth anniversary of Devi Lal,” he said.

He accused former CM Hooda of acquiring farmers’ land at “low rates” and not increasing the pension for elderly during his two terms in power.

“The BJP-JJP alliance has increased the pension for elderly and we will fulfil our promise of 5,100 per month pension when we get full-fledged mandate,” Ajay Singh added.

Haryana deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala said that an industrial cluster will be established in Charkhi Dadri after getting land under Padma scheme.

“During the Congress regime, the roads were in dilapidated condition. Our government has constructed roads, including NH-152 D, worth 300 crore in Badhra assembly segment and 180 crore in Charkhi Dadri. New jail, medical college, bus stand, three floor mini-secretariat will be built in Dadri,” the deputy CM added.

He said that the party targets to increase their vote share from 17% to 50 % in the upcoming polls.

JJP chief Ajay Chautala had earlier claimed that the party will field its candidate from Bhiwani-Mahendergarh seat, under which Dadri district falls. Badhra MLA Naina Chautala said that the party will celebrate Devi Lal’s birth anniversary by holding a rally in Rajasthan’s Sikar. She added that JJP will perform better in Rajasthan assembly polls, which are due this year.
