Rohtak: former Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda has said that rising dissent and commotion in the ruling BJP-JJP alliance is an indicator that the government has lost people’s trust. He was replying to a question about the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister’s meeting with the Prime Minister and the Home Minister on the political turmoil in the state.
Talking to journalists in Rohtak, Hooda said the coalition government formed against the public sentiments of the state, is constantly taking anti-people decisions. “Today, every section of the state’s farmers, laborers, workers, shopkeepers and small businessmen are agitating against the policies of the government, but the focus of their leaders is on saving their government and their chair. Governments that run against public sentiments automatically fall,” he remarked.
The Leader of Opposition said he is deeply pained to see the plight of the farmers today as the farmer has been forced to leave their home and sit on dharna in Delhi border and different toll plazas during the harsh winter. “Already 70 farmers have been martyred in 50 days. Despite this, the government is feeling to empathy towards the farmers who feed us. Instead of understanding the pain of farmers, the government is trying to humiliate and provoke them,” he pointed out.
“On the one hand, the central government has got them entangled in a series of never-ending dates, one the other the Chief Minister is trying to create confrontation by conducting Kisan Panchayats. All this when farmers are running their movement with complete restraint and discipline and it is clear to everyone that they do not want any kind of confrontation with the government. Their demand is completely just and clear and we fully support their demands,” Hooda said.
The former Chief Minister expressed concern over the situation which, he said, had become very serious. “People lost faith in the coalition government and its leaders, it is visible in how people are protesting against them all across the state. In view of the situation, we have repeatedly demanded the Governor to call a special session of the Assembly. We we will bring a no-confidence motion against the government on the issue of farmers. It will tell the farmers and the people of the state on which MLAs stand with the people and which ones stand with this unpopular government,” he added.
