Claiming that the law and order situation in Haryana has touched a new low under Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, newly elected state BJP president, Ram Bilas Sharma, on Wednesday said the Congress was set to lose power in the next Assembly elections at the hands of the BJP-HJC combine.
Addressing mediapersons after taking over as the state president, Sharma, a former state education minister, said: "The people have become disillusioned with the Hooda government, especially after scandals such as Apna Ghar and cases of rapes across the state. No one felt safe under the present government, hence, it has to pay for this insecurity in the next election."
Asked about the BJP-HJC alliance, Sharma said: "The alliance with the Kuldeep Bishnoi-led HJC was rock solid and we would soon chalk out a strategy to expose the Hooda government on the law and order front. While BJP and HJC will contest 45 seats each in the Assembly polls, the BJP will contest eight and HJC two Lok Sabha seats in the next elections."
