In an attempt to counter the resolution passed by the Punjab Vidhan Sabha claiming Chandigarh, Haryana Vidhan Sabha also announced the convening of a special session of Vidhan Sabha on April 5, Tuesday.

The decision to convene the extraordinary session of Vidhan Sabha was taken at the cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday.

The Punjab Vidhan Sabha on April 1 had passed a resolution calling for the immediate transfer of Chandigarh to the state, with CM Bhagwant Mann accusing the Center of trying to upset the balance in the administration of the Union Territory and other commons.

Opposition leader and former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday again condemned the resolution passed by the Punjab government in the Vidhan Sabha regarding Chandigarh as a political “jumla”. “Chandigarh was, is and will be from Haryana and that no one will be allowed to harm the interests of the state and they are ready to make any sacrifice to protect the interests of the state including leading a Padyatra or any other step in the welfare of the state,” Hooda said.

Addressing a press conference in Rohtak on Sunday, Hooda said, “All political parties will have to show solidarity in the interests of the state and all parties will have to clarify their position on this issue. There is a dispute with Punjab not only over the capital, but also over Hindi-speaking areas and SYL water. In such a situation, everyone will have to vigorously defend the rights of the state”.

“I have also called a Congress Legislative Party meeting in Haryana Bhawan in Delhi on Monday to discuss the issue. In the meeting, all strategies including meeting the President or Prime Minister will be discussed. Even prior to this the leaders of all parties met with the President to demand the implementation of the Supreme Court ruling on SYL we have not been able to meet with the Prime Minister on this issue so far. state should ask the prime minister for time,” Hooda said.

Hooda announced that if the Congress government is formed in the future, electricity will be provided free to the poor and at affordable rates to the middle class. He also reiterated that the old employee pension scheme will also be reinstated, if his government is formed.

He said that the BJP and the BJP-JJP government have made anti-people decisions throughout their tenure. “This government spared neither the elderly nor the children. This government decided to cut old people’s pensions and abolish Rule 134A, which provided a good education for poor children. “It is a totally anti-people government. Corruption has seeped into every pore of this government,” he said.

JJP leader Digvijay Chautala said, “Haryana knows very well how to fight for its legitimate rights. We know how to make Haryana a joint capital with Punjab and also how to make it a solo capital of Haryana. The resolution passed by the Punjab government makes no sense as Chandigarh was the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana for 55 years”.
