According to the Congress, it was the decision of party president Rahul Gandhi to field senior leaders who have an appeal among people as it will send a positive message to party cadre and voters.
Lok Sabha polls 2019: A 'do-or-die' battle for Manohar Lal Khattar, Bhupinder Singh Hooda in Haryana
Bhupinder Singh Hooda is trying his luck from Sonipat, while son Deepender is in the fray from his home turf Rohtak hoping for a fourth straight victory.
The Congress is banking on Hooda and his son Deepender Singh Hooda, who is seeking re-election from Rohtak for the fourth time.
Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his son Deepender, who are contesting from Sonipat and Rohtak Lok Sabha seats, have invoked Jat pride to win over voters.
In the neighbouring constituency of Rohtak, Hooda’s son Deepender, a sitting MP from the constituency is looking forward to his fourth term.
Dushyant, a sitting MP now contesting for newly-formed Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), is pitched against 26-year-old Congress candidate Bhavya Bishnoi.
The Haryana finance minister was referring to the incidents of violence which broke out during Jat quota stir three years ago when Hooda was the chief minister.
While the former Chief Minister has been fielded from Sonipat, his son is in the fray for a fourth term from the Rohtak Lok Sabha seat.
Bhupinder Singh Hooda said Manohar Lal Khattar does not understand the respect that sons-in-law and other relations have in India's culture and society, in a diag at the latter's bachelor status.
How do you judge the performance of the present Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP Government in Haryana? There’s not even a semblance of a government in Haryana.
The Congress had criticised the CBI raid on Hooda on Friday, just days ahead of the Jind by-poll in Haryana.
The company’s shares recovered somewhat on Monday, rising 4.14 per cent.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is carrying out searches at 30 other locations in New Delhi and NCR, officials said.
The division bench could not come to a unanimous conclusion as there was a difference of opinion in this matter over the issue of further proceedings.
Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Motilal Vora were granted bail by CBI judge Jagdeep Singh on furnishing a bail bond of Rs five lakh each.
