In the battle for Devi Lal’s legacy, the young Dushyant Chautala seems to have taken an edge over his uncle Abhay Chautala in Haryana.

In most of the Assembly constituencies, the Dushyant Chautala-led Jananayak Janata Party, JJP, has managed to replace the Indian National Lok Dal, INLD, which is headed by his uncle Abhay Chautala, as the third force behind the BJP and the Congress in the Haryana elections. The JJP is putting up decent fights on many seats, reducing the INLD to the fringes of state politics which it once dominated.

In almost every seat where INLD, which was founded by former deputy prime minister and great grandfather of Dushyant,  Devi Lal, enjoyed influence, JJP has emerged as the inheritor of his legacy and has a decent support base.

Following a rift within the Chautala family, INLD suffered a vertical split with former Hisar MP Dushyant Chautala floating his own party JJP.

The name of the party is inspired from the popular image of Devi Lal. Presenting himself as Devi Lal’s true inheritor, Dushyant in his speeches talks about him and his model of politics but refrains from mentioning about his grandfather Om Prakash Chautala, who backed his uncle Abhay, in the battle for legacy.

In his bid to take the legacy forward, Dushyant is contesting from Uchana Kalan in Jind district, where he is in direct fight with BJP’s sitting MLA Prem Lata, wife of former Union Minister and Rajya Sabha member Birender Singh.

There have been instances in Indian politics of difference of opinions among the family members. There were also some nephews who tried to come out of their uncles’ shadow but failed to do so. Raj Thackeray is one such example, who left Shiv Sena to form Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and then Manpreet Badal, who formed the People Party of Punjab, after moving out of SAD. But both failed to taste enough success in the political arena.

Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee president YS Sharmila had to spend the Wednesday night at the Congress Head office Andhra Ratna Bhavan as she feared that she might be put under house arrest. The APCC President led a Chalo Secretariat protest march on Thursday morning in support of the unemployed youth of the state in Vijaywada. Sharmila announced the protest march on Wednesday morning but the police did not give permission and started putting Congress leaders under house arrest.

A video circulating on social media shows the Congress leader sleeping on a mattress on the floor of the party’s Vijaywada office. In another video, shared by party leader Manickam Tagore, other Congress leaders and workers are seen sleeping at the Congress office. Sharmila avoided going to Congress MP KVP Ramachandra Rao’s house on Wednesday night where the police allegedly wanted to detain her.

Instead she chose to stay back in the Congress office. The police surrounded the Congress office on Thursday morning and many Congress leaders and YS Sharmila sat on a dharna and shouted slogans. The APCC president demanded that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government give orders to fill 23000 posts which he had promised to fill during his election campaign.

Addressing the protest meeting Sharmila said Elections are are just two months away and the chief minister has announced filling up 6000 posts. She said instead of holding a mega district selection committee for recruitment, he is doing a fraud. Sharmilla said the YSRCP rule is like dictatorship and anyone who protests is put under house arrest.

She said they have been surrounded by thousands of policemen. She added iron barricades have been put around them and they are being held hostage. She said those people who are raising their voices for the unemployed are being arrested. She said YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is a dictator who wants to stop them.

Sandeshkhali violence: BJP slams CM Mamata Banerjee, questions Rahul Gandhi’s silence

The BJP leader said that Mamata Banerjee is risking the honour of women in Bengal in order to save her political reputation.

The alleged land grabbing and sexual harassment case in Sandeshkhali, West Bengal has triggered a major political battle among the ruling Trinamool Congress party and the opposition. BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday claimed that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is hiding something in the matter and is protecting Shahjahan Sheikh and his allies.  

The BJP leader said that Mamata Banerjee is risking the honour of women in Bengal in order to save her political reputation. Questioning why parties like CPI(M) and Congress are  silent on the issue, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that he heard that a woman leader of CPM visited the area but has not opposed the incident or made a public comment. He remarked that Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is also silent on the issue. 

Since last week, several women in the district have been protesting against TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh who is allegedly the mastermind behind the incident. Though the West Bengal police have arrested two TMC leaders, Shahjahan Sheikh is still absconding. The BJP leaders in the state claimed that the police administration has become the party office of the ruling party. 

Meanwhile, State BJP president Sukanta Mazumdar on Monday, said that the party would hold a 72-hour long protest in the coming days demanding the arrest of Sheikh Shahjahan amid the turmoil in West Bengal over the Sandeshkhali violence. He added that the probable day of protest is February 22. 

Slamming Mamata Banerjee for accusing BJP of instigating violence in the state, the BJP president said that the Chief Minister should be a little more sensitive towards the women in the state and refrain from making such statements. He added that the Trinamool Congress party was in a complete denial mode of any violence in the state initially. 

Reportedly, West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali area has been witnessing massive unrest for more than 10 days as women protestors are seeking justice against alleged atrocities committed by TMC leader Sheikh Shajahan and his aides.
