Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday hit out at the ruling BJP government in Haryana, accusing it of indulging in political vendetta.

“The BJP has completely failed to perform during the past four years. It has not kept its promises made during the 2014 Assembly polls. And now to divert attention from its failures, the BJP has started lodging false and fabricated cases against me. They are indulging in political vendetta,” he said.

Mr. Hooda alleged that the tall claims made by the BJP government about zero tolerance towards corruption were untrue. “The government is neck-deep in corruption. A few months ago, the cash-for-job scam was unearthed, which has exposed the BJP’s claims of transparency in functioning.”

“After assuming power in the next Assembly polls we will investigate all scams against the BJP government. However, we will not indulge in political vendetta,” he added.

Mr. Hooda said the party’s State unit was united and dismissed reports of differences with Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar. “Bringing the Congress back to power in the State is my priority and every leader is working towards strengthening the party,” he said.

He added that the name of the Chief Minister would be decided by the MLAs and the party high command after the Congress government was formed in the State. “Once we form the government, the MLAs and the high command can decide on who will be the next CM.”

Mr. Hooda said during the ten years of Congress rule, the government had put Haryana on the road to high growth.
