Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday dismissed as "just rumours" speculation of a change of guard in the state and claimed all sections of society are satisfied with the functioning of his government.
Hooda sought to downplay the report that the Congress high command was mulling a change of guard in three states, that included Haryana, ahead of fresh assembly polls and said these were "just rumours."
"All sections of the society are satisfied with the functioning of the state government," the Congress leader told reporters in reply to repeated questions on the possibility of change of guard in the state.
"With the support and co-operation of the people, Congress will get overwhelming mandate in the upcoming state assembly polls and form the government for the third consecutive term," Hooda said. Fresh assembly elections are due in Haryana in October this year.
