Chandigarh, Aug 24: Unhappy over the number of seats allotted in the Haryana Assembly polls by Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to break ties, a BJP leader said on Monday, Aug 24.
BJP leader Vijay Goel said, "We have decided to go it alone in Haryana."
However, INLD leader Om Prakash Chautala said, "We are together and there are no such issues from our side."
When asked whether he had received any signal from the BJP, he said, "Neither have we received any indication nor has there been any talk regarding this".
INLD state unit president Ashok Arora said, "It is their (BJP) wish. They have a problem, but we would still like to contest jointly. If BJP had issues with seat-sharing, these could have been sorted out."
"We never had any problem with them. It is they who have raised issues. We still consider them our ally," Arora said.
Earlier, the BJP, INLD alliance swept the 1999 State Assembly polls and ruled the state for five years.
