On 9 December 2018, Dushyant Chautala launched the new party Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) after differences in the family led to his expulsion from Indian National Lok Dal

Jannayak Janata Party formation

Jannayak Janata Party was formed by supporters of Dushyant Chautala in Jind, Haryana on 9 December 2018. The name of JJP party was inspired from the legacy of former Deputy Prime Minister of India, Chaudhary Devi Lal, who was often respectfully referred to as “Jan Nayak” or people’s leader.

Dushyant Chautala was in a turf war over leadership of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) with his uncle Abhay Chautala. Matters came to a head when Abhay Chautala dissolved the student wing of the INLD, the INSO, which triggered Dushyant to announce the formation of the JJP. Youth employment, senior citizen pension, fair support price for farmers,and women safety are the main issues of JJP.

Under the leadership of Dushyant Chautala, Jannayak Janata Party fought its first election for Jind legislative assembly seat by-election. In the Jind by-election, JJP got 37631 votes and secured the second position.
