Hisar, September 26 – Haryana Chief Minister, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda today called upon the Hisar electorate to elect the congress candidate as only the Congress could bring better development in the region. In his presence today, a number of HJC-BJP workers including former member Block Samiti Mr Chaju Ram Jangra, former Panch Mr. Mahabir Saini and Member BJP working committee Mr. Kamal Singh Nehra joined Congress Party.
Mr. Hooda was addressing an election meeting in support of Congress Party candidate Mr. Jai Parkash at village Balsamand in Adampur assembly segment today. He also addressed election meetings in villages Burak, Bandaheri, Dobi, Kabrail, Bagla, Seeswal, Dhani Mohabatpur, Kohli and Kaliravan in favour of Mr. Jai Parkash. While launching scathing attack on opposition, Mr. Hooda said that they have nothing to do with the progress of the state and they were trying to grab power by dividing people on casteism and hooliganism. In democratic set up, he said, the governments are formed for ensuring development by giving due respect and opportunities to all sections of the society. On the occasion, Mr. Hooda reminded the people about the works done by his government which included waiving off interest on cooperative loans worth Rs.800 crore and electricity bills to the tune of Rs.1600 crore, abolishing of black law of arresting farmers and auction of their land for non payment of cooperative banks loans. He said that the opposition leaders should tell the people that when they were in government had they taken any single decision in the interest of farmers. Without naming Chautalas, Mr Hooda alleged that earlier during the regime of opposition leaders, they had always grind their own axe in the name of farmers and hurt their sentiments.
The Chief Minister said that development does not need evidence and works could speak for itself. Congress Government had incurred over Rs.3000 crore from 2005 to 2011 on development works in Hisar parliamentary constituency whereas INLD-BJP government had spent only Rs.836.10 crore during their six year tenure. Similarly, about Rs.271 crore were spent on various developmental projects in Adampur assembly constituency during his tenure of last six years. On the contrary, INLD-BJP had spent merely Rs.63.32 crore from year 1999 to 2005. “You can yourself decide who is your well wisher ?”, he added.
Calling upon the people to ensure the victory of Mr. Jai Parkash, the Chief Minister said that the people of Hisar area can come directly to him for getting their grievances redressed. He assured to spare no effort in coming up to their expectations.
Referring to the compensation paid for damaged crops, Mr. Hooda said his government had provided compensation higher than the funds provided by previous government for development of village Balsamand. Compensation to the tune of Rs.3.70 crore had been paid to farmers of Balsamand whereas previous government played with farmer’s sentiments by giving them compensation of only Rs. two or three for damage of their crops due to natural calamity. Over Rs.50 crore had been incurred on development of village during last six year, he added.
