Congress leader Amarinder Singh on Thursday challenged INLD and BJP to name their chief ministerial candidates "if they really had any".
"Bhupinder Singh Hooda is and will be our chief minister, you name who is your chief ministerial candidate," Singh said.
Appealing to people to vote for Congress, Singh said that Hooda has proved himself as a man of development in the last ten years.
"He deserves a chance as much as you deserve him to be your CM for another term to serve you once more," he said, while referring to the "massive" development Haryana saw under his (Hooda's) rule.
The former Punjab chief minister was addressing a public meeting in support of party candidate K V Singh here.
He later addressed public meetings at Rania in support of party candidate Ranjeet Singh and at Ratia in support of Jarnail Singh.
Singh asked people to compare Hooda's rule with that of Chautala (INLD supremo Om Parkash) before that.
"I think I don't need to say much as you can make out for yourself," he said, while referring to the reputation Chautala carries about governance.
Warning the people against "opportunist" leaders like Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and Om Prakash Chautala, he said, while in rest of the country Badal claimed to be supporting the BJP, here he was opposing them just for some "personal" interests.
"This is just an example of their opportunism as they can stoop to any level where they see their personal benefit at the cost of the state," he said, while remarking, "this is a classic case of putting the personal interest above the state and party interests".
