Prison term over, Ajay Chautala set to steer JJP, eye on future polls.

The release from prison of Ajay Chautala, after serving his 10-year term in a teachers’ recruitment scam, is expected to come as a big boost for the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP).

While son Dushyant had led the party to 10 seats in the 2019 Assembly elections, putting it in the position of kingmaker and getting him a seat in the BJP-led government as Deputy Chief Minister, JJP leaders said it was Ajay who was the “guiding light” of the fledgling party. Earlier, family patriarch Om Prakash Chautala, jailed on the same charges, came out of prison seven months ago.
