Just four days before the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections results, Rajya Sabha MP Birender Singh on Sunday vowed to field at least 30 of his supporters in the upcoming assembly polls in the state by October.

Addressing a public meeting at his home constituency Ucchana in Jind district on Sunday, Singh, who belongs to anti-chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda camp, said that if the Congress high command attempted to upset his plans, he would not hesitate in fighting back and doing whatever it took to get them the seats.

Anticipating a tough contest for the Congress, which has been in power for almost a decade in the state, he said that he believed the elections would pose a serious challenge for the party and it needed active support of the party workers to face the impending struggle before them.

Training guns on the MLAs, who deserted the party recently, Birender Singh said that he failed to understand that when these politicians had been enjoying power and luxuries in the Congress regime for the last several years, how could they complain differences near the poll season.
