Putting to rest speculation,Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley Sunday said the HJC-BJP alliance was “rock solid” and will form the next government in Haryana.

Addressing a rally organised by the HJC in Hisar,the BJP leader said: “The people of the country are fed up with the Congress. The party too has understood this and left midway,though elections in states,including Delhi,is yet to conclude.”

Jaitely,while not mentioning the INLD,predicted that the BJP will form government in Rajasthan,Delhi,Madhya Pradesh,Chhattisgarh and Mizoram where elections are currently on. “Haryana will be be the next state in 2014 when the HJC-BJP will form a government,” he claimed.

The 57-day long Vijay Yatra of the HJC that covered entire Haryana,culminated on Sunday with a rally in Bishnoi’s hometown.

Jaitley was the only leader from the BJP high command who attended the rally.

“I have no hesitation in accepting that we should have entered into this alliance in 2009… Had we done this,Hooda would not have been chief minister of Haryana today,” he added.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,Jaitley said: “The Prime Minister was scheduled to address a public meeting. We thought since he speaks very less,the people of Delhi will be lucky to at least hear him,but to no avail.”

Bishnoi attacked the Hooda government for its alleged failure on all fronts. “Hooda says Haryana is number 1 in all spheres. Broken roads,parched fields,atrocities on Dalits,growing number of unemployed youths,crimes against women,kidnapping for ransom,regional bias in development,all these facts expose their claims,” he said.

The HJC chief challenged Hooda to have a debate with him at any public platform “If I lose the debate,I will quit politics,” he said.
