Public waiting for poll to oust BJP: Hooda

Tribune News Service

Hisar, November 11

Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said that his struggle for farmers and other sections of society would continue.

“People of the state are waiting for an opportunity to oust the BJP from power,” he said, while addressing mediapersons here today.

Hooda said that voters of the state were eagerly waiting for the elections. “People are so fed up with non-performance of this government that they are waiting for a chance to punish the ruling party leaders,” he said, while alleging that the BJP had not fulfilled even a single poll promises mentioned in their manifesto.

Claiming that during his two terms as the Chief Minister, the Congress government had fulfilled every poll promise made to the people of the state.

Flaying the INLD, he said the party had a habit of making promises and then forgetting these after coming to power. “The INLD supremo urged the people not to pay power bills and he would waive the entire pending bills on coming to power. However, after becoming the Chief Minister, he refused to keep his promise and even ordered the police to open fire on the protesting farmers,” Hooda said, while referring to the Kandela agitation in which the police opened fire on the farmers during the INLD regime.

Reacting to former CM Om Prakash Chautala’s statement that Hooda was responsible for his jail term, he said, “During my tenure, I never indulged in vendetta politics. Chautala was sent to jail by the court not by me,” he added.
