Reacting to the decisions taken by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government on Tuesday, former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has lambasted the ruling regime saying that reversal of the previous government's decisions and increase of diesel prices would not be tolerated.
Hooda said this while participating in the commemoration ceremony of his father and freedom fighter Ranbir Singh Hooda birth anniversary here on Wednesday.
Talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the function, Hooda said that the hike in diesel prices, by putting VAT on it, would work as double blow on farmers as they were already reeling under serious trouble owing to poor crop produce.
Responding to a query of the reversal of government employee age from 60 to 58, he said, "The Congress is determined to raise the voice of people and these decisions were anti-people. People have expected chief minister to take pro-people decisions in the larger interest of Haryana, but the saffron government acted opposite to people's aspirations."
Training guns at principal opposition political party, Indian National Lok Dal, he said that they were working as B team of the saffron party in the state and were least concerned about people's interest.
Hooda also lauded his father contribution in serving society and urged the youth to take a lesson from his life to emulate a virtuous life ahead of them.
