People want a change: INLD

Special Correspondent

CHANDIGARH: Indian National Lok Dal secretary-general Ajay Singh Chautala on Thursday asserted that the people of Haryana were deeply disappointed with the performance of the Congress Government in the State and wanted a “change”.

Addressing election meetings in Adampur constituency of the Haryana Assembly, Mr. Chautala said that the Congress had been wiped out from almost one dozen States like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Gujarat and Haryana would be the next in the list due to the “Government’s non- performance and misrule”.

He alleged that the present Congress regime had failed on all fronts -- be it electricity, water, inflation, employment or law and order.

Meanwhile, addressing election meetings in different villages of Indri, INLD leader Abhey Singh Chautala also launched a frontal attack on the Congress regime and asserted that the INLD would win all the three by-elections on May 22 as the people now wanted “change”.

Observer appointed

Meanwhile, the Election Commission of India has appointed a General Observer and an Expenditure Observer in each of the three Haryana Assembly constituencies where polling for the by-elections is due on May 22 and votes to be counted on May 25, Haryana Chief Electoral Officer Sajjan Singh announced here on Thursday.

The observers are Pradita Kumar Mohpatra and Gulshan Raj for Indri, Sanjay Jaju and Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal for Gohana, and Deepak Kumar Chakrabarty and Mohammad Yusuf P.K. for Adampur.
