Chandigarh, September 16

Dissenting voices in Dushyant Chautala's Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), the BJP's alliance partner in Haryana, have become shriller with the party's MLA from Tohana Assembly seat Devender Babli expressing resentment over his neglect in the ruling dispensation.

Babli, who has been upset for long over his "neglect" in the government, today went to the extent of saying during his interaction with mediapersons in his Assembly segment that if Dushyant Chautala is Deputy CM today, it is only because of the nine MLAs who elected him leader of the party.

Nishan Singh, state president of the JJP, however, played down the MLA's outburst and said the issue would be solved within the party.

Babli is the second JJP MLA after Narnaund MLA Ram Kumar Gautam to have spoken openly against their leader Dushyant Chautala.

"If Dushyant Chautala has been able to become Deputy CM, it was only because he was able to rope in winning candidates of other political parties at the time of filing of nominations. Otherwise, from his own people, only he, his mother Naina Chautala and Anoop Dhanak could win the election. We elected him leader after he assured us that the JJP will have four ministers besides chairpersons and other posts. But now, we are all feeling ignored," the JJP MLA from Tohana said.

Meets Khattar

Babli was among the three JJP MLAs who met CM Khattar on Tuesday. The other two were Ram Kumar Gautam from Narnaund and Ram Niwas from Narwana. Babli said that their meeting with Khattar was a routine affair.
