Adampur, Hisar June 15 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said that Congress party was fully ready for the next Lok Sabha elections and the party would emerge victorious in the polls.
Interracting with mediapersons here today, he maintained that the fuel prices had increased due to the hike in the prices of petroleum products at international level. On the contrary, the rates of petrol and diesel were minimum in Haryana as compared to other states, he said while pointing out that VAT on LPG had also been abolished.
To a question, on the Sarita suicide case, the Chief Minister said that investigation was in progress. The inquiry would be fair and culprits would not be spared at any cost, he assured.
While referring to the law and order situation in the state, he maintained that there was complete peace and harmony and no patronisation was being given to the culprits in the state as was the case in the previous regime. He asserted that FIRs were being lodged in every case.
While referring to the visit of Prime Minister, Mr Hooda said that the date of the visit had not been finalised yet.
To a question about the resignation of MP Kuldeep Bishnoi from Lok Sabha, he said that Mr Bishnoi had not met the Speaker of the Lok Sabha with regard to his resignation.
When his attention was drawn towards the working of the some leaders against the official party candidate in the Adampur byelection, he said that it was the internal matter of the party.
Later while addressing a 'Dhyanavad Rally' here, he assured the people of Adampur constituency that he would himself look after their interests and that of the area.
Mr Hooda reminded the people that in the byelection to the Adampur constituency, the Congress candidate Ranjit Singh despite losing had got 31,000 votes. This was a moral victory as a man who had a rich experience of 40 years in politics could manage just 56,000 votes, he said without mentioning the name of Mr Bhajan Lal, the Janhit Congress candidate who had won the bypoll.
Without naming Mr Bhajan Lal, the Chief Minister said that he had always promoted the politics of selfishness and he never allowed any political leader to flourish in the constituency. "The constituency was limited to his family members", he added.
The Chief Minister said that these byelections were an indication that the coming Lok Sabha elections, the Congress would win all 10 seats.
Later, the Chief Minister laid the foundation stone of a cow shed in Sri Krishan Gaushala here and announced a grant of Rs 5.5 lakh for it.
