Hamirpur, Dec 7 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today claimed that huge developmental works in the state during the last four and half years would help the Congress Government to return to power after the assembly elections.
Addressing a public meeting rally at Sujanpur Tira of the district, he said people were happy with the state government's performance and would vote for it in these elections while ignoring the BJP's negative campaign.
Dubbing the BJP as ''Bahut Jhoothi Party'' (a party of big liars), Mr Hooda said it had no future since it was always raking up issues that were against the interests of the country.
Exhorting the electorate to reject the BJP, he said, whenever the party was handed over power in the country or state, developmental activities had come to a standstill.
''A party is known by its leaders, intentions and policies, and all these three things are with Congress, which has a long history of honest leadership.'' "Leaders are like All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Sonia Gandhi, who spurned the post of the country's prime minister when offered to her, unlike the national BJP leaders who are trying to score points over each other in the race for party leadership." ''The BJP has neither any policy nor programme and its one point programme is to grab power to its own selfish means,'' he said Observing that while the Congress was the synonym for development, the Haryana Chief Minister said the BJP stood for ''vinash'' (destruction).
Congress sitting legislator and candidate Anita Verma also spoke on this occasion.
