Amid denial and speculations rife over Haryana assembly elections being scheduled along with the Lok Sabha elections, Jatland is witnessing major political churnings that may impact the outcome of elections. 

The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has finally announced a break-up of its alliance with the principal opposition party in Haryana, the INLD, which now arguably stares at an uncertain future. The incumbent BJP appears back in the reckoning gaining out of the falling stock of its adversaries ahead of polls. The saffron party’s takes a plunge into the ensuing elections with its tried and tested strategy to gain out of polarizing the non-Jat votes in its favour in Jat-dominated Haryana. 

The new kid on the block, the Janata Jannayak Party (JJP), a rebel faction formed out of the split in the INLD by former jailed MP and Chautala’s estranged son Ajay Chautala, may turn out to be an underdog. JJP’s incredible performance in the recent Jind by-polls- where its candidate and Chautala’s estranged grandson Digvijay lost to the BJP but defeated Congress national spokesperson Randeep Surjewala to bag the second position-proved that the JJP cannot be mistaken as a political greenhorn.     

INLD patriarch and former CM Om Parkash Chautala, who is serving a 10-year jail term in Tihar jail in a corruption case, walked out of jail on a parole a couple of days ago. He is expected to galvanize the sulking party cadre after INLD’s humiliating defeat in its stronghold Jind assembly constituency where its candidate finished fifth in the race and lost his security deposit. INLD’s fortune now hinges upon the political stewardship and trust the senior Chautala commands. The INLD splitting ahead of elections owing to an ugly family tussle and the party left in lurch to fend for itself with the BSP walking out of the alliance all indicate towards INLD’s badly falling stock. 

All three opposition parties:  Congress, INLD and the JJP have largely banked upon the dominant 22% Jat votes in Haryana. This vote bank now is headed for a split. The BSP has announced its tie-up with the newly formed Loktantra Suraksha Party (LSP) led by rebel sitting MP of the BJP Raj Kumar Saini. As the political dynamics alter in Jatland, the state is headed for an interesting finish.
