BSP calls off al­liance with INLD, cites Chau­ta­las’ split

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - HTNATION -

CHANDI­GARH: Blam­ing the split within the Chau­tala fam­ily for “weak­en­ing” the al­liance, the Bahu­jan Sa­maj Party (BSP) Satur­day snapped its nearly nine-month-old as­so­ci­a­tion with Haryana’s main op­po­si­tion, the INLD, and forged ties with the LSP, an out­fit floated by rebel BJP MP Raj Ku­mar Saini. The de­vel­op­ment came three days after In­dian Na­tional Lok Dal (INLD) leader Ab­hay Chau­tala had claimed that the al­liance was in­tact. The party had suf­fered a hu­mil­i­at­ing de­feat in the re­cent by­polls to Jind Assem­bly.
