Successful rally at Gohana proves Hooda's might as well as exposes rift within the party
By organizing successful rally at Gohana in Sonipat district of Haryana, also known as epicentre of jat politics, Haryana's chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has proved beyond doubt that he and only he is calling shots in the affairs of Haryana Congress party. This is despite the outbursts of dissident Congress leaders, Union Minister and Dalit icon of Congress Kumari Selja, Birender Singh, former All India General Secretary and grandson of Messiah of framers Sir Chhoturam and Rao Inderjit Singh.

Jubilant over the turnout, mainly drawn from old Rohtak districts comprising of Sonipat and Jhajar districts, Hooda announced a number of concessions for all sections of the society. With men wearing pink headgear and women carrying pink dupattas, Hooda's supporters particularly belonging to Jat community from this area had come to attend the rally dancing and raising slogans praising Hooda.

Taking a dig at the opposition parties Hooda said that while he was having alliance with the people of the state, the opposition parties are joining hands for looting the state. Hooda urged Party's Haryana affairs in charge Shakeel Ahmed to bring into the notice of high command about the activities of the dissidents within the party.

Shakeel Ahmed congratulated Hooda for development work and assured that party high command is behind Hooda. Hooda thundered that with the support of people he will become chief minister for third time. Hooda announced that remuneration of village chowkidars (watchman) and numberdars will be increased and the family of farmers or farm labourers who dies in field will be given compensation of five lakh rupees. For injury a sum from thirty thousand to two lakhs rupees will be given.

The CM also announced compensation in case of death of milch cattle. Hooda said that 50% interest on cooperative loans will be remitted if payment is made in full.

There is a list of sops that the Haryana's Cm announced in the rally. In case of loss to crops from hail or natural calamity a compensation of ten thousand rupees per acre will be given. Backlog of jobs of scheduled castes and backward classes and ex-servicemen will be cleared in a year. Hooda announced that contract system of labour will be abolished.

A minority commission will be constituted and sixty five thousand vacant posts will be filled. Ex- servicemen will be exempted from payment of property tax. The state cops will get Rs 5000 per month extra for working twenty four hours.

The Gohana rally has further widened rift in already faction ridden Congress party in the state which could prove costly in ensuing elections. As already expected Kumari Selja and Birender Singh and their supporters boycotted the rally, which proved to be personal show of strength of Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his son Deepender Hooda, MP from Rohtak had used all available weapons for making the rally a grand show. Party MPs Naveen Jindal, Avtar Bhadana, Jitender Malik, Ashok Tanwar, Shruti Choudhary and Arvind Sharma congratulated Hooda for all round development of the State on the occassion.

Virender Singh, political advisor of the Chief Minister Hooda claimed that the Gohana rally is biggest ever rally held in the country so far.

It interesting to mention here that at the time of Haryana Assembly polls in 2005, annoyed over Hooda's failure to get him ticket from Hassangarh assembly constituency, the same Virender Singh had broken flower pots and had misbehaved with Asha Hooda, the wife of Bhupinder Singh Hooda in protest.
