Sampat Singh quits INLD
Former Haryana Finance Minister Sampat Singh announced his decision to quit the INLD, saying there was no scope for him in the party to exercise the values of Chaudhary Devi Lal. Sampat Singh has been associated with the INLD since 1977.
IN A significant political development, former Haryana Finance Minister Sampat Singh announced his decision to quit the INLD, saying there was no scope for him in the party to exercise the values and ethos of Chaudhary Devi Lal. Singh, who was also INLD’s general secretary and spokesperson, decided to quit the party he had been associated with since 1977.

“I am aggrieved to see the way the party is being run, in a state which used to have so much respect and reverence for Choudhary Devi Lal,” Singh told. Though he did not reveal his next move, sources said he was keen to join hands with Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. “My workers will decide what I have to do now. If they tell me to join the Congress, I will do so,” he said.

Sources said he might think of joining the Haryana Janhit Congress, led by former CM Bhajan Lal, who has entered into an agreement with BSP to fight in the upcoming Assembly polls. “I am quitting INLD with a broken heart. I did not lose from Hissar, but my own people worked against me, which resulted in my defeat from Hissar LS seat,” he added.

Hooda on his part refused to make any specific comments on the possibility of Sampat joining the Congress. “We have not yet spoken in this regard. You should know leaders keep going in and out,” he said. Hooda, who is going to fight the poll on a development plank, has every reason to feel happy, as Sampat’s exit is bound to have repercussions on the prospects of the INLD.

INLD Chief Om Prakash Chautala, however, said there was all respect and recognition for Sampat, and he was always treated as a valued leader of the party. “It is unfortunate that he has been misled,” he said. Stating that whosoever had left the INLD to join the Congress, were soon lost in political oblivion, Chautala said, “It is the workers who make the leaders. Leaders do not make the workers.”
