Hooda mocks BJP for escalating onion prices
Taking a dig at Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar's slogan of '75 plus' seats in the October 21 Assembly polls, Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda here on Wednesday said it (the BJP) would not cross the 75-mark, but onions and diesel had crossed the (Rs) 75-mark.
Khattar's slogan 'Mission 75' got louder after the BJP's stellar performance in the Lok Sabha polls.
In the 2014 Haryana Assembly polls, the BJP won 47 seats, while the INLD and the Congress got 19 and 15 seats, respectively.
BJP's ally Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the BSP won one seat each and Independents five seats.
The state will go to the polls on October 21 and results will be declared on October 24.IANS
