The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Jananayak Janata Party (JJP) have entered into an alliance in Haryana for the Lok Sabha elections, announced AAP leader Gopal Rai. The alliance will contest on all the 10 seats. The JJP was launched by former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's grandson Dushyant Chautala, following a power struggle in the state's main opposition INLD last year. Gopal Rai said the JJP will fight on seven seats, the AAP will contest on three.
Dushyant Chautala said he would decide on his party's candidates for the seven seats in the next two to three days. "Jhadu (AAP's election symbol) and chappal (JJP's poll symbol) will remove obstructions and emerge victorious, and together they will defeat the BJP and the Congres," Chautala said.
Arvind Kejriwal has proposed an alliance between the AAP, JJP and the Congress but the grand old party rejected the proposal.
