Campaigning for Congress candidates in Sonipat for the civic polls, former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had expressed confidence of a repeat of the Baroda bypoll results, which he said “will shake the foundations of the BJP-JJP government”.

He sought support for Congress mayoral candidate Nikhil Madan and party candidates contesting for the posts of councilors.

“The local body elections are an opportunity for the people of Sonepat to teach a lesson to BJP-JJP as the government completely ignored the developmental aspirations of the people of Sonepat over the last six years. People compare the record-breaking development work carried out in Sonipat during our government with what the BJP government has done. They know the difference,” Hooda said.
