While giving rest to the speculations of pre-poll surveys, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has asserted that the Congress party is in a strong position in the state and the party would win all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

Hooda, who was addressing a press conference after presiding over the meeting of the State Cabinet here on Wednesday, was asked to comment on the reports of surveys by various agencies in view of the Lok Sabha elections. He said the surveys during the Lok Sabha elections in 2004 and 2009 were also similar, but the Congress formed the government on both the occasions.

While ridiculing the statement of the leaders of the Opposition parties on pre-poll surveys, Hooda said everyone had a right to dream and cited them as ‘Mungerilal ke haseen sapne’.

On being asked about the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Hooda said that aam aadmi (common man) was with the Congress, whereas ‘kuchh khaas aadmi’ (few special people) were in the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’. Hooda said that new political parties keep on forming and would continue in future also, but there is a Congress wave in the country and in the state.

He also ruled out any influence of the AAP on Congress votebank. When asked to comment on his meeting scheduled with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Hooda said they were to discuss inter-state issues. However, Kejriwal has informed him that would be unable to attend the meeting.
