Questioning Bishnoi's capability to lead BJP-HJC alliance in the forthcoming assembly elections after losing his Lok Sabha seat from Hisar, BJP said that the party's parliamentary board will take a call on future of alliance with HJC in Haryana.
"Looking at his (political) programmes that he has started now, what we understand is that Kuldeep Bishnoi has broken the alliance (with BJP in Haryana). In his rallies, no BJP worker is informed about his programmes and there is no BJP flag at his programmes. Moreover, pictures of BJP’s national leaders are also not put up in his political functions which was earlier used to be a practice, Vij said.
Vij said that Bishnoi has started maintaining distance from BJP after his drubbing in Lok Sabha polls from Hisar. "He (Kuldeep Bishnoi) is deliberately staying away from BJP in Haryana," Vij claimed.
Haryana BJP also accused Bishnoi of not following alliance 'dharma' being a leader of BJP-HJC alliance.
"He has not followed alliance dharma. During Lok Sabha polls, he should have campaigned for all ten Lok Sabha seats in Haryana. But he remained confined to just two seats – Hisar and Sirsa," Vij said, adding that the party was not satisfied with HJC's performance during Lok Sabha polls.
Vij questioned Bishnoi's ability in leading the BJP-HJC alliance in coming Haryana assembly polls this year in the wake of losing his seat in 2014 general elections.
"Under Narendra Modi leadership, BJP saw historic win in Lok Sabha polls. But in Haryana, he (Bishnoi) himself lost during polls. That is why we are forced to think (over
reworking alliance with HJC) whether we will be able to sail through assembly polls under his Bishnoi's leadership," he said.
As per the arrangement between BJP and HJC, both parties will contest 45 seats each in 90-member Assembly.
Vij said that BJP core group had already conveyed the situation to senior party leader and Union minister Rajnath Singh.
"We hope before July 5, BJP Parliamentary Board will take a decision on BJP-HJC alliance in Haryana," Vij said.
On possible alliance with Om Prakash Chaulata's Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) for the Assembly polls, Vij said that there is no proposal in this regard.
Haryana BJP also announced launch of a website ‘www.BJPchargesheet.com’ whereby it will gather information from people about ‘malpractices’ going on in any state government department in order to "expose" Bhupinder Singh Hooda led government.
"People can send their documents pertaining to any malpractice they have discovered in any department. We will examine it and then we will incorporate in our charge sheet exposing scams and mis-governance during Congress-led Haryana government regime. This charge sheet will be made public by end of July," he said.
Vij said that the party will also access information through RTI to expose the state government for the ‘skewed’ development, higher power tariff and atrocities on Dalits in the state.
