Chandigarh, Dec 7 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said the people of the state had already rejected regional parties and they had no future in the state.
''Such parties neither have any policy, nor do they last long,'' Mr Hooda said while talking to mediapersons here.
He was asked to comment on the future of regional parties in the state in the wake of formation of a new party by disgruntled leader Bhajan Lal and suspended Congress MP Kuldeep Bishnoi.
Mr Hooda said the regional parties had vested interests and were narrow - minded. The people were aware of the fate of regional parties in Haryana and other states like Karnataka, he added.
When his attention was drawn to reports that Haryana was ahead of Punjab in per capita income, Mr Hooda credited UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhis, policies of the state Government and people of Haryana for this ''significant achievement.'' UNI
