Ambala, Nov 7 (UNI) While the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has no public support, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been rendered rootless party in Haryana, said Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee President Phool Chand Mullana here today.
He said the formula of ''social engineering'' of the BSP would not succeed in the state since the Congress government was taking a good care of the interests of Dalits who acted as party's committed cadres.
Mullana was interacting with media to greet them on the occasion here today. He said a big Dalit rally would be organised at Karnal on the occasion of death anniversary of Baba Bhim Rao Ambedkar.
Prior to the rally, the state government had decided to celebrate the death anniversary of Ambedkar at Bilaspur, district Yamunanagar where Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda would be the Chief Guest.
He claimed that the state government had extended a number of facilities to the dalits including the recent allotment of 100 yards of residential plots.
Criticising the BJP, the HPCC President said the party leaders were making tall claims of extending its base in rural areas while the reality was that they had been cut off even from the urban voters who were considered to be its committed and trusted cadres.
Mr Mullana also lashed out at disgruntled Congress leaders Mr Bhajan Lal and Mr Kuldip Bishnoi, saying that the father-son duo should resign as MLA and MP and quit the Congress party if they were to guage their popularity.
He said that by remaining in the Congress they were exploiting the people by representing themselves to be partymen and that they were ''playing tactics to cheat the people.'' adding that how could those not loyal to their party be faithful to the people.
Mr Mullana claimed that all promises made during the election had been fulfilled.
However, on the question of power shortage, he stated that there would not be any shortage after commissioning of nuclear power plant.
He further said the power plant would be installed at Fatehabad when the nuclear agreement was implemented.
