I don't ac­cept my ex­pul­sion from INLD: Dushyant Chau­tala

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

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.
