INLD’s breakaway faction Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), led by Dushyant Chautala, the son of Ajay Chautala, on Wednesday, October 3 released the 4th list of its candidates for the upcoming Assembly polls in Haryana.
Dushyant Chautala, the youngest MP in the previous Lok Sabha, parted ways with the INLD in December 2018 after a bitter split in the party and in the Chautala family.

Six former INLD legislators who switched to the BJP have been fielded by it for the polls.
