INLD on Monday said the speeches of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah during his recent visits to Haryana were quite contrary to the stand earlier taken by the saffron party about INLD.
"I want to tell Shah that so far the baseless allegation of lawlessness and goonda-ism is concerned, the BJP was partner in the state government. Moreover, Narendra Modi had lauded the rule of INLD-BJP by praising Om Prakash Chautala in 2003 and announced him as the best administrator," Indian National Lok Dal MP from Hisar Dushyant Chautala said.
Addressing a rally in Haryana recently, Shah had alleged that, "You have tested both the Chautalas and the Hoodas. You know when Chautala comes, a reign of terror is let loose and when Hooda comes corruption increases."
Dushyant said the speeches of Shah during his recent visits to Haryana were "quite contrary to the stand earlier taken by the party leadership about INLD". "It appears that the BJP leaders in Haryana have misguided Amit Shah and deliberately asked him to speak against INLD," Dushyant, grandson of OP Chautala, alleged while addressing an election meeting in Barwala town, about 30 km from here, in the support of party candidate Ved Narang.
He said "Shah has spoken differently now following the advice of the party leaders in the state."
Addressing a party rally in Mahendergarh last week and then addressing another public meeting in Jind in which senior Congress leader Birender Singh joined the saffron party, Shah had sought a decisive mandate in favour of his party in the upcoming Assembly polls and said that the days of the Congress in Haryana were over.
The leader of the BJP, which is eyeing to wrest power from Congress, had also attacked the main opposition INLD, saying people had tried the Hoodas and the Chautalas and that now was the time to give a chance to BJP under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership.
Meanwhile, Dushyant hoped that INLD government in Haryana would return after the October polls.
