Hooda Slams Modi for insulting Haryana
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday launched a veiled attack on prime minister Narendra Modi and BJP urged the people to teach a lesson to opportunists and those who insulted their elected representatives at Kaithal recently through the use of vote.
A resolution was also passed in Panipat to condemn the Kaithal incident in which BJP workers had hooted during the official function of Narendra Modi.
” I had intelligence reports that trouble might be created by some people at the official function, but I did not believe such reports as I was of the view that nobody would create trouble as everybody would uphold the dignity of the Prime Minister,” Hooda said.
Hooda said that he had been there to attend an official function of National Highways Authority of India, but questioned that who generated hooting at a function.
“Hooda had been to the official function, therefore where lies my fault. Was Hooda there in his personal capacity. In case today I call someone here and insult him, what will happen,” Hooda said.
The Chief minister said that but he upheld the dignity of the event as he belonged to a family of freedom fighters and is a son of a person who has put his signatures on the Constitution of India. He said that the insult which was meted out to him was of the entire state and the people in the state would not tolerate it.
Modi said that the people in the state wanted to know that who were those who created trouble at the official function. He said that he was aware that people were annoyed because of the insult meted out to him, but he did not like their idea of not allowing any of those who had created trouble to enter any Chaupal. The Chief Minister urged the people not to insult them in such a way, but advised them to use the weapon of vote to take revenge from them. He also described the people of Haryana as his strength and also of the Congress party.
The Chief Minister exhorted the responsive crowd that if they wanted to serve democracy, they should take a pledge to teach a lesson to the opportunists.
The Chief Minister also challenged to give a befitting reply to the Central government if it tried to change the policies like MGNREGA and Right to Food Act. He said that ever since the BJP government has been formed at the Centre, they had been saying that such schemes would be reviewed.
