Haryana’s Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday termed the critics of his government as politically ambitious persons, not detractors. Hooda said that people whom the media describes as detractors are, in fact, politically ambitious leaders and ‘Each of them, whoever he or she may be, is speaking because of his or her own political ambitions.’
While referring to Haryana Congress party leaders’ comments about the functioning of the state government, Hooda said, “There is no infighting. We all are a family. The Congress is a democratic party where everybody has a right to speak and communicate his views. There are no other factors, except that everyone who is speaking is ambitious.”
Hooda claimed that Congress party will come to power in the state for the third consecutive time and criticized the Punjab government’s move to rename Mullanpur as New Chandigarh.
“The chemistry of Chandigarh cannot be changed. If today I name Gurgaon as Newly Born Delhi or Modern Delhi, what will it mean? It is not ethical. It is for the Punjab Chief Minister to decide,” Hooda said.
Hooda added that Haryana had given its approval for metro rail projects in the state and the project will start soon.
