Dushyant Chautala

Dushyant Chautala tested positive for COVID-19: He has urged all those who had come in contact with him over the past week to also get themselves tested.

Gautam said that Chautala is holding 11 Cabinet portfolios which could have been distributed among party MLAs, adding that he should not forget that he became deputy chief minister with the support of his party legislators.

The total number of ministers in the state Cabinet has now gone up to 12, including Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala.

Citing data from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Chautala rapped Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying that Punjab is mostly responsible for the air pollution due to stubble burning.

Khattar also took oath as Haryana Chief Minister for the second term after the recently concluded polls in the state. In the Assembly polls, BJP fell short of six seats to get a majority in 90-member Haryana Assembly.

"Uddhav Thackeray ji has said that we have other options too but we don't want to do the sin of accepting that alternative. Shiv Sena has always done politics of truth, we are not hungry for power," said Raut.

Khattar along with Chautala had met Governor Satyadev Narayan Arya on Saturday and had staked the claim to form the government in the state.

Ajay Chautala and his father Om Prakash Chautala were convicted on January 16, 2013, by a Delhi court for illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic teachers 12 years ago.

Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) president Dushyant Chautala had met his father Ajay Chautala at Tihar prison complex on Friday.

The BJP had on Friday sealed an alliance in Haryana with Dushyant Chautala's newly formed political outfit Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), which won 10 seats in the 90-member Haryana Assembly.
