Kaithal (Har): Launching a scathing attack on opposition Indian National Lok Dal, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday accused it of putting "big obstacles" in the development projects.

Hooda said the INLD did not set up even a single power plant in the state while in power, whereas, the state government with Centre's help was now going to set up a nuclear power plant so as to resolve the issue of shortage of power permanently.

"It is a matter of great regret that the INLD has been opposing it and misleading the people as it has become a habit with it to put obstacles in the matters of development and in projects that benefit people of the state.

Addressing a 'Jan Samarthan rally' in kaithal, he said "although INLD has no representative in the Lok Sabha yet they have been asking their workers to remain prepared for the mid-term poll."

"The present government wanted to develop state as an education hub, but they (INLD) are opposing the setting up of Rajiv Gandhi Education City. The INLD party has nothing to do with the development of the state, but they only want to gain power," Hooda claimed.

Taking a dig at INLD president Om Parkash Chautala and his two MLA sons Ajay and Abhay Hooda said "all these three leaders, thrice a day, demand my resignation on one pretext or the other, as they had no other issue to raise."

Taking a dig at the Chautalas, the chief minister said "those who were today talking of corruption, they themselves indulged in it and people know all about it and are aware that against whom the cases of corruption are going on in the courts".

While giving an open challenge to the opposition, Hooda said that "if anybody from Kalka to Palwal and Mahendergarh proves that I have accepted even Rs 11, I will quit."

Hooda said the present Congress government in the state has taken a number of decisions for the welfare of every section of the society.
