Chandigarh, May 14: The people of the state want ‘change’ and would elect Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) candidates to bring positive change in the polity of Haryana, said INLD president & former chief minister Chaudhary Om Parkash Chautala in a press statement issued here today.
Mr Chautala said that the people are fed up with the present misrule & the electorate wants to punish Congress government & HJC candidates for betrayal & lack of development during the Hooda regime. He said that the people have realized that vote for Congress & HJC party candidates are wastage of an important opportunity to punish Congress party. He said that the vote for Congress & HJC would not serve any purpose because Congress party is ruling for more than three years & which is quite a big period to perform.
Mr Chautala said that Mr Hooda fears for INLD win only as INLD win in the byelections would put curtains down for Hooda government. "If INLD candidates are elected from the three assembly byelections, count down of Hooda government would commence immediately & the people would be relieved of Congress government misrule in the next three months", he added.
Mr Chautala said that the Congress party, chief minister Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Mr Bhajan Lal, Mr Dharampal Malik & Mr Rakesh Kamboj are all collectively responsible for the present condition of affairs. The people want change from the present state of anarchy, lack of electricity, drinking & irrigation water, growing prices in the state, he added.
Mr Chautala said that Mr Bhupender Singh Hooda & Mr Kuldeep Bishnoi has no moral right to seek people’s vote in the constituency as vote for them would be the vote for the status quo and the people had earlier voted for them in the last general elections.
Mr Chautala said that the people had earlier given a significant opportunity to the HJC candidates by electing them MLA as Congress candidates but the HJC candidates failed to do justice with that. "If the HJC candidates, who were elected by the electorate in the last general elections, could not bring development to the area or pull down the Hooda government in this period, how would they do it in the remaining period", he said.
Mr Chautala said that now chief minister Mr Hooda has no right to claim that he would bring development in Gohana, Adampur & Indri as he did no development in his tenure till date as the people had elected Congress candidates in the last general elections. He said that Mr Hooda was trying to mislead the electorate by promising development, employment, ample electricity & water to them. If Mr Hooda could not do it till now, how will he do later when his own days are numbered and he is on way out, he asked?
Launching a scathing attack on Mr Hooda, Mr Chautala said that the ‘grace period’ of Mr Hooda has ended as he has been proved to be the most non-performing, incompetent & corrupt chief minister of the state. The people are fed up with his oft repeated claims of brining enough power, water, controlling inflation & corruption in the state and now would not give him any more chance, he added.
INLD leader said that the HJC candidates have also no moral right to seek another inning as the MLA because the people had elected them as MLA in the last general elections and they have totally failed to bring any development to their area or bring down the anti-people Hooda government.
Mr Chautala said that vote for INLD would be the vote for change as only INLD is capable of bringing down Hooda government. Whenever the people has supported & voted for INLD in the byelections, INLD has formed the government, he added.
Earlier Mr Chautala addressed 15 election meetings in Gohana today in favour of INLD candidate Dr K.C. Bangar. Mr Chautala called upon the people to elect INLD candidate with big margin & teach Congress party a suitable lesson for the rising prices, lack of electricity, water & deteriorating law & order in the state. Local INLD leaders also accompanied Mr Chautala. INLD leaders were given warm welcome during the campaign. Many Congress, HJC, BJP & BSP leaders joined INLD today.
