Hooda dreams of a comeback

deeds returning to haunt ex-cm

bric-2Bhupinder Singh Hooda ruled Haryana like an iron man for 10 years, in the process finishing the Congress, but he remains very ambitious. First, he desires to be General Secretary of the Congress party. If that is not passed by the Congress high command, then he aspires to be President of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee or Leader of the Congress Legislature Party. If none of this materialises then he would like to see his son, Deepender Singh Hooda, MP, as General Secretary of the party. But the Congress leadership is not very enamoured of Hooda and family. Not only is the old man in the political wilderness right now, he is also fighting many battles within and outside the state. His latest tussle is with Kiran Chaudhary, the daughter-in-law of Bansi Lal, who is the Leader of the Congress Legislature Party in the state. His bête noire is Ashok Tanwar, Congress President and protégé of Rahul Gandhi. Tanwar is against Hooda’s dictatorial attitude. Then there’s the Gurgaon land scam case. The Haryana government has handed it over to the CBI, say sources. CBI officials are sitting in Gurgaon, Manesar and Sohna for the past two months. The Manohar Lal Khattar government is determined to send Hooda to jail. People are waiting to see how it deals with Hooda and his builders’ coterie. Psst: Whether Hooda’s career will revive or not depends on one of the most powerful leaders within the Congress, whom Hooda ignored during his chief minister days when he was very cosy with a certain son-in-law.
