Sirsa: Top BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari and Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said the BJP-Haryana Janhit Congress (BL) alliance in Haryana was as firm as a rock and was here to stay.

In the event of the alliance coming to power in the state in the next assembly election, HJC chief Kuldeep Bishnoi would be the Chief Minister for first two-and-a-half-year, the two leaders said

BJP president Gadkari and senior leader Swaraj told the HJC foundation day rally here that the alliance was as firm as a rock. Swaraj said all issues that could destablise a coalition were carefully resolved at the time of BJP-HJC joining hands in 2011.

"These include the question of leadership while forming government and division of Lok Sabha and assembly seats among the partners. Therefore, there is no scope of the alliance breaking on any such issue," she said.

Attacking the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre, Gadkari said the only things the current dispensation had given to the people were unemployment, inflation and rising poverty.

Swaraj lashed out at the Congress-led government in Haryana alleging the law and order had worsened in the state. "The daughters of Haryana are not safe and secure under the present dispensation," she said. Swaraj alleged the UPA government at the Centre and the Congress government in Haryana had shattered all records of corruption.

Gadkari appealed to the people to send all ten NDA candidates from Haryana to the Lok Sabha in the 2014 general election to enable formation of a "pro-people" government at the Centre.

He said the BJP governments in several states were giving credit to farmers at zero per cent interest rate, adding similarly power was being supplied at cheaper rates.

"Why can't the Congress does the same in states where it is in power," he asked. Gadkari wondered how Harayana could talk about industrialisation when the power supply situation in the state was "very bad".

Kuldeep Bishnoi, in his address, said he was optimistic that the HJC-BJP would form the next government in Haryana. He said the HJC-BJP government would eradicate corruption, provide jobs to unemployed and provide a fair and free administration.

Bishnoi alleged the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in Haryana was pursuing anti-people policies.

Former Haryana Minister Mange Ram Gupta, a close confidant of Bishnoi's father late Bhajan Lal, and former MLA Dura Ram were among several leaders who joined the HJC fold during the rally held on the Dussehra ground on the outskirts of Sirsa.
