Step into politics in 1972
Bhupinder Singh Hooda entered politics in the year 1972. At the beginning of his political career, he was the President of the Block Congress Committee. Later, from 1980 to 1987, he was the Vice President of Haryana Pradesh Youth Congress, President of Panchayat Samiti and President of Panchayat Parishad of Haryana.
In the Lok Sabha elections of 1991, 1996, 1998 and 2004, Hooda won consecutive elections and became a member of the Lok Sabha four times. Hooda’s cry in Haryana can be understood from the figure that he defeated former Haryana CM and former Deputy Prime Minister Chaudhary Devi Lal from Rohtak in 1991 Lok Sabha elections.
Haryana’s CM was made for the first time in 2005
From 1996 to 2001, he was the President of Haryana Congress Committee. Hooda was also the Leader of the Opposition in the Haryana Legislative Assembly from 2002 to 2004. On 5 March 2005, he became the Chief Minister of Haryana for the first time. After this, on 25 October 2009, he again became the Chief Minister of Haryana.
Father was a member of the Constituent Assembly
Bhupendra Singh Hooda was born on 15 September 1947 in the family of a freedom fighter. His father Chaudhary Ranbir Singh Hooda was also a member of the Constituent Assembly of India and was also a minister of the Punjab Government in independent India. Hooda inherited administration and politics.
Congress’s victory over Hooda
It is very important for the Congress, which has been out of power in Haryana for five years, to win the assembly elections this time. The entire burden of victory is once again on Bhupinder Singh Hooda as the Congress would not like to take any chances on such a crucial occasion. However, the Lok Sabha elections of the year 2019 were heavy on the father and son. Bhupinder Singh Hooda lost the election from Sonipat and his son Deepender Singh Hooda lost from Rohtak.
Despite this, the Congress has once again handed over the command of Haryana elections in the hands of Hooda. It is obvious that the Congress knows that Hooda knows the pulse of the people of Haryana better. Now it will be seen what charisma Hooda can do in bringing back the lost power of the Congress because Hooda is not only under pressure to perform but also has a challenge to deal with opponents.
