Chandigarh, Jun 12 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today asked the Congressmen to prepare for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
''The winds are blowing in favour of Congress in the state,'' he said while addressing the presidents of block units of Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) here.
Later, talking to mediapersons, Mr Hooda said the recent assembly byelections in Haryana had set the trend for future politics and indicated that the Congress would win all the ten Lok Sabha seats in the state. The party would also emerge victorious in the next assembly elections, he added.
He said the presidents of block units of the Congress had been urged to popularise the modalities of the loan waiver scheme of the Central government which would benefit the poor farmers to the tune of Rs 72,000 crore. ''They have been asked to ensure that no eligible beneficiary is left out.'' To a question, Mr Hooda said the byelections were a clear sweep for the Congress and these proved that people had full faith in the policies and programmes of AICC president Sonia Gandhi and the state government.
These byelections, he said, had also indicated that INLD being led by Mr Om Prakash Chautala was unacceptable to the people, BJP was non-existent and the Haryana Janhit Congress (BL) was non starter.
HPCC president Phool Chand Mullana said the byelections had proved that the Congress leadership in the state was competent and the party's vote bank had increased. The people have reposed their faith in the policies of the Congress and they would do so in future too, he added.
