Cadre upbeat, will win Haryana polls, says new Congress chief

Chandigarh, May 5

Newly-appointed Haryana Congress president Udai Bhan took charge today along with three other working presidents, Suresh Gupta, Jitendar Bhardwaj and Ram Kishan Gujjar. The fourth working president, Shruti Choudhary, was told to be suffering from “Covid”.

Flanked by former CM and Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Hooda, Deputy CLP leader Aftab Ahmed, chief whip BB Batra and most Congress MLAs, Bhan said, “We have taken 11 hours to reach here as we were stopped at 40 places on our way to Chandigarh. There is so much enthusiasm in party workers. It reflects the anger against the present state government. Fuel prices have doubled or tripled. The state which used to be power surplus is now facing a shortage. What relation does the present government have with Adani Power?”
