Reacting to the successful rallies by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Rohtak parliamentarian Deepender Singh Hooda sought to know that why the saffron party that was claiming to form next government in Haryana was not declaring the name of its chief ministerial candidate in the run-up for the assembly polls.

Deepender stated this at Rai assembly segment of Sonepat district on Tuesday while extending invitation to people for the Congress' August-24 rally in Panipat.

Reminding the saffron party of its past, chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's son said the BJP had a history of announcing the candidates for the posts of CM and prime minister.

Citing an example, he said like they announced the CM's name beforehand in Delhi, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name was also declared prior to the general elections.

In a poser to BJP national chief Amit Shah, Deepender said the state Congress is seeking votes in the name of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, so electorate need to know the name of saffron party's CM face.

On the desertion of veteran Jat leader Birender Singh, Deepender said only those leaders of the Congress, whose winning chances were low, have joined the BJP. He also lashed out principal opposition party - INLD for working against the interests of farmers and weaker sections of society.
