JJP is new INLD in Hry Fetches 3 Times More Votes In Direct Contest Seats


After the Jind byelection, the performance of Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) in the parliamentary elections, especially in Hisar and Sirsa, has proved the emergence of this six-monthold outfit as a valid substitute to the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD). For decades, INLD was the strongest regional political outfit of the region but got less than onethird of voters than JJP on the seven seats where the two parties were in direct contest (see box).

Not just in Hisar, Dushyant has proved that in Sirsa too, which was considered as stronghold of Chautala family, his outfit is more popular than INLD, the party headed by his grandfather and former CM O P Chautala.

INLD had won two Lok Sabha seats in 2014, when Dushyant Chautala had won Hisar seat and Charanjit Singh Rori won from Sirsa seat.

However, in the 2019 poll results, announced on Thursday, INLD’s Hisar candidate Suresh Koth could get only 9,761 votes, which was not even 1% of the total polled votes. AS JJP candidate, Dushyant Chautala managed to get around 2.9 lakh or 24.51% of the total votes.

Similarly, in Sirsa, where INLD candidate Rori got 88,093, JJP’s Nirmal Singh Malri secured 95,914 votes.

Even JJP’s Kurukshetra candidate Jai Bhagwan Sharma secured 68,513 votes. Still higher than 60,679 votes INLD’s Arjun Singh, who is younger son of Abhay Singh Chautala, could fetch despite the party machinery running his campaign full throttle. All INLD leaders and O P Chautala’s family was camping in Kurukshetra for Arjun. The only exception was Gurgaon where INLD fetched some 1,000 votes more than JJP.

Earlier in Jind byelection, held in January this year, JJP candidate had secured around 38,000 votes, while INLD candidate finished with less than 5,000.

According to political experts, the results in parliamentary elections, especially in Hisar and Sirsa which INLD had won in 2014, has testified that Dushyant’s JJP has emerged as the substitute of INLD. They are also of the view that though the strong Modi wave collapsed almost every political party but JJP candidates are getting more votes than INLD candidates, which is warning bell for Dushyant’s estranged uncle Abhay.
