Hooda to begin 'Jan Jagran Abhiyan' from Kandela tomorrow
Former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda will begin "Jan Jagran Abhiyan" from Jind district tomorrow to highlight alleged anti-people policies of the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government in the state.
Hooda will begin a statewide "Jan Jagran Abhiyan" from Kandela village. In the programme, Congress general secretary and party affairs in-charge for the state, Shakeel Ahmad, a number of Congress MLAs from the state and Hooda's supporters will take part, a party leader said.
Hooda, who remained a two-time chief minister between 2005-2014, has alleged that the government had failed on various fronts including on the farmers issue.
He has alleged that the state government cheated the people by going back on its promise of providing 24-hour power supply to rural areas, on the issue of old age and widow pension, providing unemployment allowance, on implementing the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission for farmers and a host of other issues.
"This government has turned out to be ineffective and insensitive...there is a state of confusion, no one knows who is in command and who is running the government. Who is taking the decisions, no one knows," Hooda said.
Notably, the BJP had formed the government in Haryana for the first time on its own after last year's assembly polls.
Hooda justified starting the campaign from Kandela village in Jind, saying earlier too when he was an opposition leader he had started a campaign on farmers issue from there and moreover the place was "centrally located" in the state.
Notably, yesterday, Haryana Congress led by its State unit chief and former MP Ashok Tanwar launched its state-wide 'Padyatra' to engage with farmers and other sections to highlight the alleged failure of the BJP government on all fronts in the state.
Today also, Tanwar continued with his "Padyatra" in Kurukshetra district.
