Former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala while addressing a rally in Gohana, expressed his resolve to make BSP supremo Mayawati as the next prime minister of India. “We will work towards uniting the Opposition so that Mayawati becomes the next prime minister,” said INLD leader.
Om Prakash Chautala is serving a 10-year jail term in a teacher’s recruitment scam and recently out on parole. It was his first public appearance after getting out from jail on parole. He last addressed a public rally in Jind, four years ago on September 25, 2014.
Both BSP and INLD forged an alliance in Haryana ahead of the 2019 parliamentary elections.
Abhay Chautala, son of Om Prakash Chautala, also addressed the rally. He promised to farmers a complete crop loan and electricity bills waiver once they come to power.
“Repeat 1987 (when the INLD swept the state polls) by strengthening the hands of the INLD-BSP combine so that (Om Prakash) Chautala once again becomes the chief minister,” he said.
The rally was organized on the occasion of the 105th birth anniversary of senior Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leader and his father Devi Lal. Om Prakash said, “Today, he is not amongst us but we have to follow his ideas and work towards realising his dreams.”
Former Gujarat chief minister Shankarsinh Vaghela also addressed the rally and spoke about his close association with Devi Lal and his family for over four generations. He said the INLD leader understood the pain of farmers and common masses. Vaghela attacked the Centre over high fuel prices and said the cut of Rs 2.50 per litre in the petrol and diesel prices was not sufficient.
