AMBALA: Hisar MP and Jan­nayak Janta Party (JPP) leader Dushyant Chau­tala on Satur­day de­nounced the newly formed al­liance be­tween the Bahu­jan Sa­maj Party (BSP) and Lok­tantra Su­rak­sha Party (LSP) of BJP rebel MP Ra­jku­mar Saini, dub­bing it as un­holy and casteist.

The BSP en­tered into the new al­liance after part­ing ways with the In­dian Na­tional Lok Dal (INLD) on Satur­day in the wake of their hu­mil­i­at­ing de­feat in Jind by­elec­tion, where al­liance can­di­date Umed Redhu lost his se­cu­rity de­posit and was re­duced to the fifth po­si­tion.

Dushyant, who was in town to in­au­gu­rate JJP’s new of­fice, also told me­di­a­per­sons that his newly floated party would not join the BSP-LSP al­liance. “The BSP and LSP have joined hands on casteist ba­sis. We don’t be­lieve in pol­i­tics on the ba­sis of caste and re­li­gion,” he added.
