Notably, the biggest political spectacle in Haryana in 2018 was the feud in the INLD — which finally split between Ajay Chautala and Abhay Chautala. The feud saw Ajay Chautala and his sons Dushyant and Digvijay being expelled from the Haryana-based party by Om Prakash Chautala, who threw his weight behind his younger son Abhay Chautala. With his father serving jail sentence, Dushyant had launched the JJP in December 2018.
Meanwhile, bureaucrat-turned-politician Brijendra Singh, son of Union minister and prominent Jat leader Birender Singh, also filed his nomination papers from Hisar seat. The 46-year-old IAS officer has voluntarily retired from the Haryana government to carry on the political legacy of his great grandfather and peasant leader Sir Chhotu Ram.
Singh has movable and immovable properties of Rs 8.24 crore and 6.39 crore respectively. His liabilities are amounting to Rs 2.72 crore. His total assets and liabilities also comprise that of his wife Jasmeet Sial, who holds the position of the vice president at a private bank in Chandigarh.
