Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday slammed Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, saying that he had ruined farmers by selling their land to corporate houses.

Speaking during a road show taken through various places in Hisar, Kejriwal also hit out at the Congress and BJP for “spreading corruption and ignoring the interests of common man”.


Targeting Hooda, the AAP leader alleged that he had done nothing but ruin farmers by selling their land to corporate houses. During his about 90-minute road show in Hisar, Kejriwal said corruption was at its peak in Haryana and Gujarat. “Government jobs in Haryana as well as in Gujarat are on sale,” he said.

Dismissing reports of a Modi wave sweeping the country, he questioned BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s plans to contest from two seats. “Why did he decide to contest from two seats and why was he desperately looking for a safe seat,” he asked.
