Congress's former Haryana unit chief Ashok Tanwar, who on Wednesday announced his support to Dushyant Chautala-led Jananayak Janta Party in state polls, has decided to also back senior INLD leader Abhay Singh Chautala on the Ellenabad seat.
"Abhay came to meet me at my residence at Sirsa in the evening. I consulted my supporters. I said if they have decided to support him (Abhay) on one seat (Ellenabad), then I have no issues," Tanwar told.
Tanwar's supporters were of the view that he and Abhay Chautala, seeking re-election from Ellenabad seat in Sirsa district, have the same objective of stopping the BJP from returning to power and to teach the Congress a lesson.
Abhay Chautala is the son of INLD president and former chief minister O P Chautala.
His Indian National Lok Dal is facing a crisis after a vertical split in the party last year because of a feud in the Chautala clan and because of an exodus of its sitting MLAs and other leaders to BJP, Congress and JJP.
JJP was floated by former Hisar MP Dushyant Chautala in December last year following split in the INLD.
