He asked the government to provide 100 yard plots to the poor, provision of wheat flour, pulses & gas cylinders at fair prices and to control the inflation in next four days. If the government manages to do it in the next four days, INLD would pull back its candidate on 8 May, other wise Mr Hooda should not give false & bogus allurements to the masses, he added.
Mr Chautala held chief minister Mr Hooda responsible for the neglect of Indri during the last three years. He said that the chief minister is duty bound to bring equal and allround progress to all parts of the state but Mr Hooda has failed to do that.
