Hisar (Haryana): Punjab Chief Minister
Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday alleged the Congress-led UPA
government had failed in all fronts and its "reverse
countdown" had begun.
Badal appealed to people to lay the "foundation of change"
by voting in large numbers in the October 13 Hisar bypolls and
ousting the Congress government.
"Dont think that the polls are taking place for just the
seat of Hisar. It is an election of India`s future... your
thinking should not be limited to just this seat, but you have
to lay foundation for change," Badal said, addressing a
gathering on the occasion of Indian National Lok Dal`s `Samman
Divas` rally here.
The rally was organised on the occasion of the birth
anniversary of former deputy prime minister, Devi Lal.
Former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala`s son and party
general secretary Ajay Singh is contesting the bypolls from
here. His main rivals include Congress` Jai Prakash and
HJC-BJP`s Kuldeep Bishnoi.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress-led UPA,
Badal said, "Its reverse countdown has begun. It has failed to
deliver on all fronts... Poverty, price rise and unemployment
have increased during the Congress regime. You (voters) have
to give fatwa (verdict) to oust this government," he said.
