New Delhi: Congress general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad, in-charge of Haryana affairs, on Monday announced to take all top state leaders across the state in a bus.
Azad said fortunately the Lok Sabha elections in Haryana are only in the sixth phase, giving a lot of time to go around in the bus. “Moreover, we will be laying the foundation for the Assembly elections expected in another seven, eight months,” he said.
He pointed out that there are differences among the Haryana leaders but when they move around in a bus for some weeks, eat together and address public meetings from a single stage every day, their differences dissolve and they automatically come together to become “twenty-in-one.” A big improvement over “three in one,” he quipped.
Azad said he would be himself accompanying the party leaders in the bus. Two days ago he had announced a coordination committee headed by former CM Bhupender Singh Hooda and withdrawn within hours.
He announced the same committee at a press conference here on Monday, explaining that he had delayed it for consultations to accommodate the seniors in other committees like campaign committee, election management committee, publicity committee, etc. to involve all in the elections.
