Congratulating Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its leader Arvind Kejriwal for routing the Congress in Delhi, the chief ministerial candidate of the BJP-HJC combine in Haryana Kuldeep Bishnoi has said that it is a high point of political cleansing at all levels.
Bishnoi said that the BJP-HJC alliance was working to connect with the people of Haryana to win their confidence for a clean politics.
"Like me, Kejriwal too is a strong votary of a government with transparency and accountability. Governments that fail to deliver programmes for the common man are bound to be rejected by the voters. We will prove the same in Haryana in 2014 polls," the HJC president told Hindustan Times on phone on Sunday afternoon.
Bishnoi said that the alliance's campaign in Haryana was focused on empowerment, inclusive development and to provide a corruption-free government.
He said that like Delhi and Rajasthan, the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-government in the state would have to pay the price for neglecting the common man.
Bishnoi said that nearly a dozen of Congress legislators and its allies in the state were either languishing in jails or facing serious criminal cases, bringing a bad name to Haryana.
"We are elated over the BJP's victory in four states and its impact would be visible in the assembly and parliamentary elections in Haryana," he said.
"The election results firmly indicate that people have completely lost faith in the policies of the Congress. The BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi have been accepted by the voters and 'the dawning room leaders' like Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul and their political coterie, have been completely rejected," he said.
In a scathing attack on Hooda, the Hisar MP said that if the BJP-HJC combine comes to power, bureaucrats like Ashok Khemka and Sanjiv Chaturvedi would be given important assignments.
He said that instead of honouring the upright officers like Khemka and Chaturvedi, the Hooda government was victimising them.
"It is unfortunate that honest officials are being punished. People are watching all this and the Hooda government will face the music," he said.
"What Khemka did was exemplary and courageous effort to call spade a spade. People like should be made role models for a better society. We are taking such issues to the public to expose the corrupt functioning of the Congress government in Haryana," said Bishnoi.
