Senior Congress leader takes a dig at Bhupinder Singh Hooda
Senior Congress leader of Haryana, Birender Singh feels that Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Haryana's Chief Minister is responsible for the party's defeat in the recently concluded Loksabha polls but he has no morality to resign on moral grounds. He said that earlier in 1999 Loksabha polls, when Hooda was State Congress Chief, the party had lost all the ten seats during the time as well and Hooda did not resign.

In a no holds barred interview, Birender Singh who had launched a frontal attack on Hooda for his style of functioning said that Hooda was totally cut off from the Congress party workers and the people of the state, which primarily led to the party's defeat. He further added that the bureaucracy never responded to the people and party workers.

Referring to claims of development by Hooda, he said that the first development was done only in selected areas and moreover it was suppose to develop the entire state. Birender Singh could not hide his agony over the fact that he was denied induction in Manmohan Singh cabinet at the last minute although he received invitation from Prime Minister Office, reportedly under pressure from Hooda.

It was amusing to see him lose the elections so badly, but celebrate his son, Deepender's victory, who won from Rohtak seat. Birender Singh said that all the powers were confined with Hooda and even a peon could not be transferred without his consent.

When asked that majority of Ministers and Legislators are happy with Hooda, Birender Singh said that if any one is happy that his son has been selected as Naib Tehsildar what can one say, obviously pointing that they are happy because Hooda had given them personal benefits.

Taking a dig at Hooda for making sermons of discipline, he said that those talking about discipline should practise it themselves also, as one needs two hands to clap.

He also regretted that several trees were fell during recent visit of Hooda in Jind to land his chopper. Birender Singh disclosed that after defeat of the party in Loksabha polls, he had detailed discussions with Hooda putting some suggestions for improving party's image for assembly polls but Hooda was not responsive to his suggestions.
