Hisar, Nov 21 (UNI) Dissident Congress leader and former Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal today claimed that a number of Congress leaders will participate in the December two 'Janhit' rally to be held under the ''yellow banner'' at Rohtak.
Mr Bhajan Lal, who was interacting with mediapersons while in village Lalwas in the district for a family function, however, refused to divulge the names of the Congress leaders expected to join the rally.
"Come to Rohtak and see for yourself who all join the rally,'' he quipped when pressed to clarify whether his nephew, Congress MLA Dura Ram would attend the rally.
While stressing that at least 10 lakh people will participate in the mega-rally, the former Congress state party chief asserted that the event would ''cause a blast in the state politics.'' On being asked about the name of the new party, he reiterated that it would only be announced at the December two rally.
When asked to comment on Congress state chief Phool Chand Mullana decalring the Rohtak rally anti-party and sending letter to party High Command seeking action against MP Kuldeep Bishnoi, Mr Bhajan Lal said, ''Kuldeep Bishnoi is the voice of people which has sounded the bugle against the anti-people policies of Hooda government and this voice can not be stifled by such letters''.
He also claimed that Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government had failed on all fronts in Haryana and the public was now thoroughly disenchanted by its populist announcements.
