I don't accept my expulsion from INLD: Dushyant Chautala
CHANDIGARH: Haryana MP Dushyant Chautala on Saturday refused to accept his expulsion and that of his brother Digvijay Chautala from the INLD, claiming that the party's national executive had not met and no sack order issued by president Om Prakash Chautala. Amid a widening rift in the Chautala family, Dushyant Chautala said only the Indian National Lok Dal's national executive or a committee headed by the party president could take action against him. But he claimed the “working committee” meeting called by his father Ajay Singh Chautala on November 17 in Jind could suspend or expel any leader. Definitely, if the committee unanimously takes action against anyone. It is supreme,” he said, answering a question at his first press conference here after the crisis. The young Chautala claimed he heard about his “expulsion” only through the media. On November 2, an INLD press release quoting their grandfather Om Prakash Chautala had announced the expulsion of the two brothers following an inquiry which found them guilty of “indiscipline”. Both are the sons of Ajay Chautala, who is pitted against his younger brother Abhay Chautala in the power struggle. The two leaders were suspended after their supporters allegedly shouted slogans at an INLD rally in Gohana, appearing to target Abhay Chautala.
