Countering the opposition predictions of debacle of Congress party in ensuing Lok Sabha polls, chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Friday claimed that his party would repeat the history of 2004 and 2009 Lok Sabha elections by winning all the ten seats in the state.


Hooda was talking to mediapersons at Jind on Friday during his road show in favour of Sonepat nominee Jagbir Malik.

Interacting with mediapersons, he said that ticket distribution had exposed the party as it couldn't field even eight candidates of its own. "How can people of the state repose faith in such a party?" he questioned.

The candidates of the opposition parties are fighting for the second place, he said.

"The people who were giving Congress only a couple of seats till 20 days ago are now saying that the party would win 6-7 seats. I can say with confidence that Congress would win all the 10 seats," he added.

Responding to a query on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Hooda said that AAP was a party of dual character. "In Gaziabad, AAP says that on being elected they would develop Gaziabad on the pattern of Gurgaon, but in Gurgaon, they say that no development has taken place in Gurgaon," he said.
