Alliance with HJC here to stay: BJP

Gadkari appealed to the people to send all 10 NDA candidates from Haryana to the Lok Sabha in the 2014 general elections to enable formation of a "pro-people" government at the Centre. "The BJP governments in several states were giving credit to farmers at zero per cent interest rate. Similarly, power was being supplied at cheaper rates. Why can't the Congress does the same in states where it is in power?" he asked.

Gadkari also wondered how Haryana could talk about industrialisation when the power supply situation in the state was "very bad".

While addressing the rally, Bishnoi said: "I am thankful to the people of Sirsa and Haryana, who came here today to give me their blessings and love. This shows that people have shed their fear of the INLD and decided to change the political regime in the state. Chaudhary Bhajan Lal's family has defeated Chaudhary Devi Lal's family's three generations in the past."

Targeting Hooda, Bishnoi added: "Be it a labourer, employee, businessman, people from all walks of life are cursing the Congress government. The time has come for the Hooda government to go."

While claiming that said he was optimistic that the HJC-BJP would form the next government in Haryana, Bishnoi said: "The HJC-BJP government would eradicate corruption, provide jobs to unemployed and provide a fair and free administration. We will also constitute a state development board for simultaneous growth in all parts of the state."

Former Haryana minister Mange Ram Gupta, a close confidant of Bishnoi's father late Bhajan Lal, and former MLA Dura Ram were among several leaders who joined HJC during the rally held on the Dussehra ground on the outskirts of Sirsa.
