`Haryana state polls will be held on completion of govt`s term`
Hisar: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday said assembly elections in the state would be held after the Congress-led government completed its full term.
Dismissing speculations that the assembly polls could be held along with the Lok Sabha elections, Hooda said the state elections would be held after the present government completed its term.
He was addressing a press conference at the residence of Haryana State Federation of Consumers Cooperatives Whole Stores Ltd (Confed) chairman Bajrang Dass Garg here.
Hooda said his Congress party would form the government in the state again based on its performance.
On the CD episode involving chief parliamentary secretary Ram Kishan Fauji, in which Lokayukta had recommended filing of FIR asked him, Hooda said, "The case is being examined."
Asked about Union Minister Kumari Selja moving to the Rajya Sabha, Hooda said, "The party has given her ticket, and she will take care of the interests of the state being a Rajya Sabha member."
In reply to a question about scheduled caste reservation, he said, "There is a backlog of 15,000 vacant posts of scheduled castes which are to be filled soon."
