Kalayat MLA Jai Prakash has denied the charges levelled by a senior Congress leader that he was involved in the recent developments in the Kaithal Truck Union that has elected a hardcore criminal as its president.

Talking to mediapersons here on Saturday, he claimed that no member of that truck union had ever met him. JP, as Jai Prakash is popularly known as, said the Congress leader had stated in reference to the truck union's activities that 'Green Brigade' people had resumed their activities in the region after the assembly polls.

Jai Parkash, who headed the infamous 'Green Brigade' during the INLD rule, said the remarks were highly irresponsible.

He said he was an elected representative of Kalayat people and not any brigade's member. He dared the Congress leader to prove his charge at an open public debate. "I am ready to answer any question in this regard," he added.
