“Congress party has lost its way”: Former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda attacks his party for opposing abrogation of Article 370

There are speculations hinting that Hooda will be parting ways with the Congress to float a new political party ahead of Haryana state assembly elections.

Former Haryana Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday hit back at the Congress party saying it has lost its way for opposing the abrogation of Article 370.

Speaking at Parivartan Maha Rally’ at his home turf Rohtak, former CM Hooda said wherever the principles and morals are being harmed, one should get up to show that they are alive. This statements from Hooda comes at a time when the Congress party leadership is opposing the historic decision of the Narendra Modi government to abrogate Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories.

I was born in a patriotic family, those who oppose abrogation of Article 370, I want to tell them usulon par jahan aanch aaye, vahan takrana zaruri hai, jo zinda hai to zinda dikhna zaruri hai (Wherever your principles and morals are harmed, you have to get up. You need to show that you are alive),” said Hooda.  

Further, Bhupinder Singh Hooda also said that he supports Centre’s decision to revoke provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir (J&K).

“When the government does something right I support them. Many of my colleagues opposed the decision… my party has lost its way, it’s not the same Congress it used to be,” Hooda said at a rally in Rohtak. When it comes to patriotism and self-respect, I’ll not compromise with anyone,” Hooda added.

The Parivarthan rally of Bhupinder Singh Hooda is projected as a show of strength and a wake-up call to the party high command to acknowledge his stature just ahead of assembly polls in the state. Interestingly, no senior Congress leader has been invited for today’s rally indicating that Hooda may think of charting a new political course.

There are also speculations hinting that Hooda will be parting ways with the Congress to float a new political party ahead of Haryana state assembly elections.

Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, along with Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and other senior Congress leaders are accused in the multi-crore National Herald scam. The Central Bureau of Investigation had charge-sheeted him in a case pertaining to re-allotment of an institution plot in Panchkula, Haryana, under sections 120B and 420 of the IPC. The CBI had booked Hooda for criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust, cheating and misuse of official position by public servants. He is currently out on bail.

Similarly, an FIR has also been lodged against Bhupinder Singh Hooda along with Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s brother in law Robert Vadra and others for alleged irregularities in the land deals in Gurugram.
