Haryana Governor refuses to meet Hooda over special session demand

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, December 31

Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya has refused to meet Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda over calling a special session of the Assembly to move a no-confidence motion against the BJP-JJP government.

"The Governor refused to meet me without specifying any reason. I am witnessing such a situation for the first time in my political career. The Governor is a constitutional post. Neither is he calling a session nor is the government interested. The government knows that it will not survive once a no-confidence motion is moved," he said.

"The Governor has expressed his regrets regarding your appointment request. Inconvenience caused is regretted. Wish you a very happy New Year," read the letter from the Haryana Raj Bhawan to Hooda. Congress MLAs met on Thursday and decided to write again to the Governor.

"We have asked the Governor to use his constitutional powers to call the Assembly session as the state government has lost the support of MLAs and the people over the farmers' protest. The no-confidence motion will expose the MLAs who are against farmers," said Hooda at a press conference.

"Farmers have been agitating at the Delhi borders and other parts of the state for 36 days and 42 have lost their lives. In such a serious situation, it is important to discuss farmers' issues," he said. He claimed that JJP and Independent MLAs had been speaking openly against the government.

On the local bodies' poll, Hooda said, "The BJP has won just one mayoral post, and that too by a margin of 2,000 votes. We have won in Sonepat by a big margin."
