Cong has given ticket to grassroots worker: Bhupinder Hooda

hana, October 16

Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has said that the Congress has given ticket to a grassroots worker from a farmer family on the demand of the people of Baroda. He was interacting with mediapersons after the nomination of Congress candidate Induraj Narwal. He said that the people of the constituency were demanding ticket for a local candidate this time.

During the last election and in the presence of late Shri Krishna Hooda, I had promised the public to give ticket to a local candidate in the next election.

He said this is not just a poll to elect an MLA but a fight for the honour of Baroda and the future of Haryana. “The Congress stands with the common man, the farmer and the workers in this fight against the BJP-JJP government. When Induraj Narwal, son of a farmer family, reaches the Assembly by defeating the BJP and its dummy candidates, a big message will go to the entire state,” he added.

Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Singh Hooda, who also stood with Narwal as he filed his nomination, launched an attack on the BJP government. He said everyone in democracy and party has the right to ask for ticket, but only one person can get the party nomination. Now, everyone should unite and work for the victory of the party, he said.

“This election is now the election of the people of Baroda. This fight is not only against the ruling coalition, but also against the dummy candidates who have entered the electoral fray with the intention of benefitting the government by dividing the anti-government vote bank. The public will elect a true son of the soil,” he commented.

Deepender added that the result of Baroda would resonate as far as Chandigarh. — TNS
