Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda attacked the Narendra Modi government saying it was exposed within 27 days of its coming to power at the Centre with its policies which have started to burden the people, including increase in train fare.
"The new NDA Government is less than a month old, but already the common man is facing the burden with their policies," Hooda said addressing a party workers meeting here.
He said that the voters have started to realise that they have chosen a wrong party.
"Instead of bringing people the oft-promised 'ache din' (good days), it has inflicted on them 'mehnge din' (price rise), making them reel under relentless price rise, made acute by the anti-people policies pursued by the Narendra Modi government," he said.
The CM said during the Lok Sabha elections, an atmosphere was created and people were made to vote for an individual and not for any policies or programmes of the BJP.
"Some promises were made and expectations were aroused that after Modi became the Prime Minister, diesel would be sold at the rate of Rs. 40 per litre and milk Rs. 20 per litre and the prices of other consumables would be slashed. But all hopes have been dashed," he alleged.
He further said, without presenting the budget, the Government has taken anti-people decisions like increasing diesel prices by 50 paise per litre every month and raising the rail fares.
"It is becoming clear that the prices of manure and cooking gas would also be increased in the coming days. The hopes and aspirations with which the people had voted for Modi are fast turning into disappointment and the people have already started feeling cheated," he said Hooda claimed that during the nine-year tenure of Congress government "Haryana has reached number one position from 14th in terms of development".
Farmers in the state were getting power for eight-hours, while villages for 14 hours and cities 24 hours.
Hooda said the farmers are being supplied electricity at the rate of 10 paise per unit whereas the farmers of Gujarat and Rajasthan were being provided power at the rate 26 times more than Haryana.
"The price of diesel in Haryana is the lowest in the country. It is Rs. 6 less than the price prevailing in Rajasthan and Rs. 8 less than in Gujarat," he said, adding the state government was setting up two lakh houses for the poor in rural areas and 1.5 lakh in the urban areas.
