Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, on the issue of governors being transferred and some offering to quit, has said the dignity of the office of governors should be upheld and one must care for the culture of this institution.

Hooda, who was interacting with newspersons after the cabinet meeting here on Monday said a governor had approached even the Supreme Court, therefore, one should wait.

When asked to comment on the result of the byelections of some states, Hooda said after the Lok Sabha elections, the expectations of people were turning into disappointments and that he would form the government for the third time.

When asked to comment on promise made by the INLD to give social security pensions of `1,250, if voted to power, Hooda said his government had done more than what it had promised and it was true to its word.


He said those farmers who take short-term loans from cooperative banks and would pay their loan on time, the government would exempt them from paying the interest. Similarly, in case of long-term loans, if the farmers paid their loan on time, the government would pay 50% of their interest.

He added that it had been decided to waive off loans amounting to `154 crore taken by 1.25 lakh beneficiaries, including members belonging to Scheduled Castes and backward classes, from the Haryana Scheduled Castes Finance and Development Corporation and Welfare of Backward Classes and Economically Weaker Sections Corporation up to March 31, 2013.

He said it has been decided to post Varinder who was deaf and dumb, but an outstanding wrestler as a junior coach.
