The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) was founded in October 1996 as Haryana Lok Dal (Rashtriya) by Choudhary Devi Lal, who served as Deputy Prime Minister of India in the V.P. Singh’s Cabinet and Chief Minister of Haryana twice.

NLD is dedicated to the all-round uplift of farmers, labourers, rural and urban areas and the downtrodden and exploited. It draws inspiration from Gandhian principles, our rich heritage and the noble traditions of our struggle for national independence. The party considers the right of peaceful and democratic dissent including Satyagrah or non-violent resistance as a fundamental right of the people.
