Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday took a serious note of Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal's remarks terming him wherein he had termed him 'property dealer', saying "it was very unbecoming of a former CM to have said it and that he would give an apt reply to him soon''.


Interacting with newspersons on the sidelines of the assembly session, Hooda said that it was unbecoming of a person (Kejriwal) who had been chief minister of Delhi. "Does not appear to be a decent political remark," he said and added that Kejriwal said it to garner 'cheap popularity'. "Aur yeh language shobhaniye nahi hai (The language was no decent)," he said, adding, "I would give him an apt reply soon".

When asked for his comment on the excise and taxation minister Kiran Choudhry and her MP daughter Shruti's plea for action against some people within Congress and outside it, who were misleading people alleging their role in a recent murder of a BJP leader in Tosham, Hooda said that she had not named any Congress leader and that he had already asked police to nab the culprits.

Hooda also justified Speaker's decision to suspend 29 opposition MLAs for the remainder of the session saying that speaker had repeatedly asked them to behave responsibly in the House so that the business of the House could be undertaken.

On the question of opposition demand for a police action against chief parliamentary secretary Ram Kishan Fauji in the alleged graft compact disc case, he said that his government was still examining Lokayukta's reference in which it too had recommended the same.

On the issue of several police personnel who were alive but had allegedly been given plots in the 'killed in action' category, Hooda said that the matter was being looked into and in case it would be found out that some police personnel had given wrong affidavits - like in the case of army personnel in their quota category - action would be taken against them.

Sacked guest teachers to be reinstated
On the question of agitating guest teachers, Hooda said that he had always been supporting the interests of the guest teachers. He categorically said that those guest teachers who were recently terminated during the 'dharna' would be reinstated.
