 The newly elected 13th legislative assembly of Haryana is a relatively young one, with the youngest just 29. Nearly half of the 90 legislators elected this time are 50 years old or less. While the youngest one, Sukhvinder of the BJP, who trounced Ranbir Singh Mahendra of the Congress, who is former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president and son of former chief minister Bansi Lal, from the Badhra assembly constituency, is just 29 years old, the oldest is INLD legislator Hari Chand Middha (Jind seat) at 72. At least 44 legislators in the new assembly are 50 years old or less. Of these, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has 23 young legislators, followed by the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) with 12 and the Congress with four. Nine of the 13 women legislators elected this time are under the age of 50 years. It is for the first time in Haryana that 13 women legislators have made it to the assembly. The earlier high was 11 women legislators in the 2005 assembly polls. The election results this time have also sent the first legislator-couple case to the assembly. Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) president Kuldeep Bishnoi and his wife Renuka Bishnoi will enter the Haryana assembly as the first elected couple. Both, aged 46 and 40 respectively, have been legislators earlier but were never elected together. Kuldeep is son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal.

Indian National Lok Dal Symbol

About Indian National Lok Dal



Formed in the year 1998, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) is a regional political party in India with its mass base in the state of Haryana. It forms the principal opposition party in the state. The founder of the Indian National Lok Dal is Chaudhary Om Prakash
Chautala, who is also the present Chairperson of the party. The presence of INLD can also be felt in the states of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

The Indian National Lok Dal is a political party run on the basis of kinship networks. It was the brainchild of Om Prakash Chautala's father, Devi Lal. Having been a renowned freedom fighter and a former Chief Minister of Haryana, Devi Lal was a revered figure among the masses. Though his son Om Prakash Chautala, also a former Chief Minister of Haryana, was the founder of the INLD, all major decisions regarding the welfare of the society, and especially regarding the peasants, were taken by Devi Lal. Om Prakash's son Ajay Singh Chautala is the Secretary-General of the INLD.

The INLD formed coalitions with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in most of the elections since its inception. However, after the demise of Devi Lal, the INLD's popularity started declining, with the party performing poorly in all Lok Sabha and Haryana Assembly elections.

Chautala is the current opposition leader in the state of Haryana. The INLD has announced that it will initiate all efforts to overthrow the 'corrupt' Congress government, and enter into an alliance with any party towards the same goal for the 2014 general elections. The INLD, however, has not specified to join hands with the BJP for the upcoming elections.

Election Symbol and its Significance


The Election Symbol of the Indian National Lok Dal, as approved by the Election Commission of India, is the “spectacles” (or chashma in Hindi). This is a significant political symbol for a party that claims to work for the poor people. The INLD claims to be the voice of the farmers, peasants and the oppressed sections of the society. In the states where it has a visible presence, the INLD follows the Gandhian ideals of non-violent resistance and democratic dissent. The INLD also claims to have rescued the state of Haryana from sheer lawlessness in 1999, when Chautala came to power and solved the crisis in the state.

The “spectacle” symbol is symbolic as it indicates the power of the Indian National Lok Dal to see the downcast state of living of the peasants and farmers in Haryana and Rajasthan. Devi Lal, who took major decisions for the party when he was alive, was respected by the people for his capability to see and feel the conditions of the people for whom he fought. His major schemes and policies as Chief Minister, followed by his son, have had a vibrant impact in the whole of the state of Haryana. Om Prakash's vision is to see India as a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic Republic. Thus, the INLD election symbol speaks for itself.
