Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, state Congress president Kumari Selja and Haryana incharge Vivek Bansal asked party workers to embark on person-to-person contact programme for mobilising support from the electorate for party candidate Pawan Beniwal.

Addressing workers, Selja said the party was united and poised to win the Ellenabad byelection. She said every section of the society was unhappy with the anti-people policies of the government.

Hooda said the farmers’ movement was a big issue because the government had adopted a rigid stand. Meanwhile, former minister Jagdish Nehra announced to have left the BJP and joined the Congress today in Sirsa. — TNS
