Chautala to lead new Haryana govt
Indian National Lok Dal chief Om Parkash Chautala today emerged as a consensus candidate to lead the new government in Haryana.
The 38-month-old Haryana Vikas Party government bowed out of office on Wednesday.
Haryana Bharatiya Janata Party legislative assembly unit leader and former education minister Ram Bilas Sharma said this morning that Chautala had emerged as a consensus leader to provide an alternate government.
He said that a list of 55 legislators belonging to the Indian National Lok Dal, BJP, breakaway Haryana Vikas Party-Democratic and independents would be presented to Governor Mahabir Prasad at Raj Bhavan shortly.
He said of the 55 legislators, 22 belonged to the INLD, 10 to the BJP and 19 to the HVP-D and six were independents.
He claimed that more legislators would join the new combination.
Sharma said, ''We have assured the people of Haryana that we would rid the state of the dictatorship of Chief Minister Bansi Lal.''
He said the game plan of the Congress was to prevent the INLD-BJP combine from forming a government in Haryana and this had been frustrated.
