Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has slammed his critics within the organization for the down-the-expected outcome of assembly elections for Congress, saying that ‘some of our own leaders did not back the party’.
Sworn-in as chief minister yesterday in spite of strong opposition from a faction of the party, Hooda told media persons, “complaints have also come that some of our leaders did not back the party.”
“You can call it betrayal or anything else but I can only say they should have backed the party,” he said.
He said that the party won less seats than what it expected.
“As Congress party, we have won the war but might have lost some battles…ultimately we won the war.” Hooda attributed the defeat of the party in places to wrong ticket distribution.
