Hooda making hollow promises on devt: Bishnoi

Hisar: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was making hollow promises to the people and announcing development projects, most of which remained only on paper, Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) president Kuldip Bishnoi alleged on Sunday.

Addressing a public meeting at Litani village in this district, Bishnoi, who is also the HJC MP from Hisar, alleged that the "incomplete Hansi-Butana canal was a glaring example of hollow promises made to the public."

"There are a number of other projects too, announcements of which were made much earlier, but are yet to see the light of the day," he claimed.

Lashing out at the present state government, he alleged that "the state is passing through the worst phase of financial bankruptcy due to mounting debts."

While slamming Hooda and former Chief Minister and INLD President Om Prakash Chautala, he alleged, "My (late) father Bhajan Lal had taken the initiative to start construction of the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL), but his successors abandoned the work where it was."

He iterated that his party won't allow the setting up of a nuclear power plant at Gorakhpur village in Fatehabad district.
