Former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who can be the Chief of Opposition, in a dialog with The Indian Categorical lists the problems that the Congress will probably be taking on within the Home and why he considers the current dispensation “much more corrupt than the that Om Praksah Chautala had led”. Excerpts

What are the key factors that the Congress will probably be elevating within the monsoon session?

There are a number of problems with public significance on which we will probably be demanding authorities’s reply. We’ve given a number of calling consideration motions, together with on leakage of examination paper for recruitment of seven,298 male constables, improve in costs of petrol, diesel, LPG and different important commodities, rising unemployment, withdrawal of sedition instances in opposition to farmers, on-line switch and customary cadre coverage of staff of medical schools, and crop loss as a consequence of heavy rains within the state. We had given one other calling consideration movement on on-line switch coverage for workers of universities, however the authorities has withdrawn the coverage now. We will probably be elevating a number of points together with the continuing farmers’ agitation in opposition to the agri legal guidelines, sluggish tempo of Covid-19 vaccination, no enhancement in pension being given to freedom fighters, giving due honour to the sportspersons, particularly those that have lately gained medals in Tokyo Olympics, and deteriorating legislation and order within the state.

What may very well be causes for repeated paper-leaks within the State’s recruitment examinations?

It’s for the federal government to seek out out. There had been over 20 such recruitment examinations the place query papers or reply keys have been leaked. Ultimately, a number of of those recruitments needed to be cancelled. Lately additionally, the paper/ reply key of recruitment examination for male constables was discovered leaked. Haryana Workers Choice Fee needed to cancel the examination. It’s good that the accused who have been discovered promoting query papers have been arrested and reply keys discovered of their possession, however what concerning the individuals who leaked these papers and reply keys? Why hasn’t this authorities been capable of finding out the supply of such leaks? Why has by no means anyone from the HSSC hauled up for such repeated leaks? There must be a collusion between the paper leak mafia and people occupying positions within the authorities. It turns into much more critical at a time when this authorities has outsourced the secrecy of such recruitment examinations. Numerous cash is being spent yearly to make sure secrecy of recruitment examinations. They (BJP) used to say that my authorities was a parchi-kharchi ki sarkaar. Relatively, in their very own tenure, jobs are being bought in grocery shops, the best way repeated incidents of paper leaks are occurring. By no means throughout my tenure, any recruitment examination needed to be cancelled as a consequence of such allegations that this authorities is dealing with. Why no motion has ever been taken in opposition to HSSC chairman or different senior officers who have been liable for guaranteeing secrecy of those recruitment exams? Authorities ought to cease taking part in with the way forward for the younger era. They examine onerous, spend their mother and father’ life-time financial savings and seem in these exams with a hope to get a job. And what do they get in return? Individuals promoting reply keys and query papers for lakhs of rupees and authorities finally cancelling the recruitments.

What do you assume may very well be the answer to the continuing agitation by farmers who’re sitting at Delhi’s borders?

It’s the utter failure of the state authorities that first dug trenches to cease the farmers, then used drive on them by the use of lathi cost, tear fuel and all of the strategies they may use to cease the peasants from going to Delhi. The state authorities ought to have acted as a mediator between the farmers and the Union authorities and ensured that farmers voice and their respectable calls for have been duly heard.

Chief Minister ML Khattar has introduced to make Haryana a sports activities hub. Your take?

What sports activities hub is that this authorities speaking about? Can they inform even a single stadium that they received constructed throughout their tenure? Relatively, it was the earlier Congress authorities that ensured world class sports activities services for athletes and youth of this state in a number of districts, be it Sonipat, Jind, Rohtak or a number of different locations.

Are you anticipating the monsoon session with an extended period?

We’d undoubtedly need that the session’s sittings are elevated so that each one the questions on which individuals of the state need authorities’s solutions may be raised, mentioned and debated on the ground of the Home. Nonetheless, I don’t have a lot hope that the sittings will probably be elevated.
