Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala on Tuesday described the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls as a "rehearsal" for the assembly elections in the state, scheduled to be held in a year's time.

Addressing a meeting of the members of the state executives of Haryana and Delhi units of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in New Delhi, Chautala said his government had one year to provide 50,000 more jobs to the people as announced earlier, according to an official release.

He said the party would contest the Lok Sabha polls on the basis of its achievements.

He announced that he would accompany all the INLD candidates to file their nomination papers for the Lok Sabha elections.

The Chief Minister expressed concern over the "fall" of standard of politics in Haryana, saying opposition parties were "nervous and little concerned about moral values and ideals."

He said the opposition parties in the state were so confused that they had not been able to choose their candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.
