With Mayawati’s ‘blessings’, BSP and INLD ally for Haryana Assembly polls

Sources said the seat distribution agreement allocates 53 out of 90 seats to the INLD and 37 to the BSP. Both parties pledged to eliminate contractual employment in Haryana, offering permanent jobs to youths. They also promised to instal solar plants to reduce household electricity bills to Rs 500, to provide free water, and introduce an old-age pension of Rs 7,500 per month.

For Scheduled Castes, the BSP-INLD alliance has proposed a 100-yard plot for each family, free coaching for competitive exams, and free education up to Class 10.

It is worth mentioning here that in 2018, the INLD experienced a significant split when Dushyant Chautala, grandson of five-time chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, broke away to form the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), which subsequently allied with the BJP in 2019 to help form the state government, but withdrew its support in March this year.
