The police had put up barricades to stop the march near Raj Bhavan. Congress MLAs stood in the rain at barricading waiting for governor to give them an appointment.
Speaking to reporters, Hooda said he has been constantly seeking an appointment with the governor as both, the ruling and the opposition have their own importance in democracy. “It is the constitutional right of the opposition to convey the voice of people to governor and it is his duty to listen to opposition. But by not giving time to meet, the governor is not discharging his constitutional obligation,” he said.
Hooda also said that the Congress is demanding governor to convene a special session of the assembly so that the current situation of the state and the issue of farmers can be discussed.
“Congress will bring amendments to the MSP guarantee in the APMC Act and a no-confidence motion against the government because the BJP-JJP coalition government has lost public confidence. The situation has become such that due to opposition from the people, the chief minister, ministers and MLAs backing the government are also avoiding going to their constituencies,” he said.
Hooda added that if the government falls in the motion of no confidence then it will put pressure on the central government and will be forced to withdraw the three anti-farmer laws. It was with this fear that the assembly Speaker canceled the membership of Congress MLA Pradeep Chaudhary from Kalka, without giving him notice or time.
Answering a question on Abhay Chautala’s resignation, he said Chautala should have not resigned and voted against them. “Why did he not resign when farmers were being shot in Kandela during the INLD government in 2000. This no-confidence motion will reveal the truth of those who are merely playing political games under the guise of the peasant movement and running indirect alliances with the government,” he said.
The Leader of Opposition said that the government would have got some relief due to the vacant seats of Ellenabad and Kalka. But it is certain that the trust of people has been lost. But in this way the government falls under the burden of its own contradictions.
