Internal discord in Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) was on full display this Diwali, as brothers Ajay and Abhay held separate ‘Diwali Milan’ events of Wednesday, apparently for the first time. While elder brother Ajay Chautala, who is out on parole from Delhi’s Tihar jail, met his supporters at the family home, Chautala House’ in Sirsa, leader of opposition Abhay Chautala went to Tejakhera farm to be with his wellwishers.

According to party sources, Abhay celebrated Diwali at Tejakhera farmhouse with his family. Ajay, too, was accompanied by his two sons — Dushyant and Digvijay — and wife Naina at the clan’s old house at Barnala Road. Traditionally, entire Chautala family celebrates Diwali at the farmhouse together.

Party supremo and father of Ajay and Abhay Om Prakash Chautala had suspended Dushyant and Digvijay from the party on November

2. The gulf in the party had become apparent to public for the first time when Dushyant’s supporters booed Abahy at INLD’s rally at Gohana on October 7.

On Thursday morning, Ajay reached the farmhouse to pay tributes to his grandfather Devi Lal. Sources claimed that wife of former CM Om Prakash Chautala, Snehlata, is in Delhi due to illness.

Conveying festive greeting to his supporters, MP Dushyant said that in the next two weeks his father would gauge public opinion through a series of meetings and would decide the future course of action at a rally in Jind on November 17.

He said that the meeting of the state body of the party would be convened soon.

In the next two days, he would come to Chandigarh and put some facts out in public, the MP claimed. “I am Lok Dal man by birth. Calling me a Congressman is condemnable,” he added.
