Faceless Haryana Polls

April 02 2017

Dipendra Hooda at one time had the complete trust and support of Rahul Gandhi. Which is why he had been allowed to decide on the selection of Congress candidates for the just gone by UP polls. But the Congress received an historic drubbing in the state. Yet, Rahul’s faith in the Hooda is remained unshakable. Before leaving for the UK, Rahul had said that Dipendra’s father ex-CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda should be made the party’s face in the next Haryana elections. But immediately on his return, some top Haryana leaders – Captain Ajay Yadav, Kuldip Bishnoi, Kuldip Sharma, et al – requested for an appointment with RaGa. They clearly told him that the schism between Jat and non-Jats in Haryana have widened so much that if any Jat is made the party’s face, it will split all the non-Jat voters and will be pocketed by the BJP. So it is better, they gently opined, that Congress goes to the Haryana polls faceless. And Rahul agreed to their logic.
