Marking their entry in active politics, the fourth generation of 'Tau' Devi Lal —Dushyant (24) and Digvijay (22), sons of Ajay Chautala and Karan (21), elder son of Abhay Chautala, is all set to lead the party's statewide campaign — Congress Pol Khol (expose Congress) — from February 15 by addressing public rallies.
While the ruilng party is yet to take seriously the Chautala baba brigade, the INLD, to make the public rallies successful, has chosen its own citadels as the launching platforms for the youngsters.
While Dushyant will be addressing a public rally in Uchana — his grandfather Om Prakash Chautala's constituency — Digvijay will address people in Dabwali — the Assembly constituency represented by his father. Karan will address a rally in Ellanabad, his father Abhay's constituency.
"Our sole motive of stepping into active politics is to expose the Congress and its corrupt practices. The way Congress used CBI (to implicate Chautalas in JBT scam), the land deal involving UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra and realty major DLF and other major scandals and scams committed by Congress both at centre and in the state, will be taken up by us during our public meetings," Dushyant said.
All three junior Chautalas have studied on the foreign shores. While Dushyant has completed his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from California State University, USA, Digvijay is pursuing law at Middlesex University, London. Karan is a second year student of Bachelor of Business Administration at Regent University, London.
Ajay's sons had actively campaigned for INLD in the last assembly elections in 2009 and also during the by-election to Hisar parliamentary constituency last year.
The entire INLD camp is now busy inviting and informing masses about the Chautala scions' programme schedules.
State INLD chief Ashok Arora on Thursday said that public meetings will be held in all 90 Assembly constituencies of the state. During the month-long campaign, INLD leaders will organise 8,000 public meetings in 7,000 villages and cities of the state.
"These meetings will be addressed by senior party leaders, MLAs and MPs who will disclose how the state government has broken all records of corruption and was indulging in land scams," he alleged.
JBT scam: HC to hear Chautala's bail plea today
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court will hear on February 15 former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's appeal against his conviction and 10 years sentence for illegally recruiting 3,206 junior teachers 12 years ago. The 78-year-old chief of INLD, who was sent to Tihar Jail after his conviction, has also sought interim bail on the ground that "he is unwell and suffering from various ailments". In his plea, Chautala has sought suspension of sentence on health grounds stating that he is 70 per cent disabled and requires constant supervision. "The applicant had to be hospitalised (after verdict on conviction on January 16) for chest pain, difficulty in breathing, fluctuations in blood pressure and coronary heart disease and till recently was in G B Pant Hospital," the plea said. Chautala, his MLA son Ajay and 53 others, including two IAS officers, were convicted on January 16 by a trial court.
