Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Thursday said Congress MP from Gurgaon, Rao Inderjit Singh would realise in days to come that his decision to quit the party was incorrect.
When asked whether Rao Inderjit's decision would affect the party, Hooda, who was addressing mediapersons here on Thursday, described the Congress as a very big party and that it had played a major role in making Rao Inderjit what he was today.
Stating that he had not received any official confirmation or written communication about Rao Inderjit quitting the party, Hooda said: “Whosoever had left the Congress had to come back.”
When asked if former Congress leaders such as Chander Mohan and his brother Kuldeep Bishnoi, both of whom were now Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) leaders, could also return to the Congress, Hooda said: “In politics, one cannot ignore the possibilities.”
When asked if Rao Inderjit's decision would affect south Haryana, Hooda said that there were several Congress leaders in that region. He named a few: Capt Ajay Yadav, Rao Dan Singh, Shruti Choudhry, Rao Narender, Rao Dharampal and Anita Yadav.
To a question pertaining to the appointment of a new president of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC), which was pending, Hooda said that they had already passed a resolution in this regard and had forwarded it to All-India Congress Committee (AICC) president Sonia Gandhi. “Till a decision is taken in this regard, Phool Chand Mullana will continue to hold the position,” Hooda added.
