Pundri, Kaithal, Dec 21 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today criticised the Opposition in the state for not raising any relevant issue but opposing the government for the sake of opposition.
''There was no opposition worth the name in the state and the few opposition leaders are roaming like shopkeepers. When they were in power they neither did any good for the poor sections of the society nor for the traders,'' Mr Hooda said while addressing a public meeting at Pundri in district Kaithal.
These leaders, who had been criticising the state government on the issue of lists of below poverty line (BPL) families, had in fact no relevant issue to raise, he added.
Mr Hooda assured the people that he had issued strict instructions that those who were eligible to fall in the category of Below Poverty Line (BPL) families, should not be left out. He made it clear that no poor person would be left out of these lists.
He cautioned the people against the misinformation campaign of the opposition in this regard and urged them not to be misled.
Mr Hooda said as a result of the unprecedented decisions taken by his government, all sections of society, including farmers, Dalits, labourers, traders and even employees were satisfied. ''But there are a few persons who are not able to digest the success of the government.'' He described Congress as such a party whose intentions and policies were unquestionable as the party had always been safeguarding the interests of the poor.
He reiterated that the target of his government was to make Haryana number one state and this could be achieved with the support of all sections of the society and not by him alone.
Referring to the developmental works undertaken by his government within a short period of two-and-a-half years, he said the quantum of these developmental works could be compared with those of last ten years.
Haryana Congress president Phool Chand Mullana and MP Naveen Jindal also addressed the gathering. Those present on the occasion included Haryana Congress working president Kuldeep Sharma, Parliamentary Secretary Krishna Pandit and Kaithal MLA Shamsher Singh Surjewala.
