'Breaking news' is news to Hooda
New Delhi, April 10 (IANS) Bhupinder Singh Hooda of Haryana is one of the most politically stable among chief ministers in Congress-ruled states. So there was some flurry over 'breaking news' on TV that he could resign!
A certain news channel showed the news that he had offered to resign over ticket allotments in Haryana for Lok Sabha seats, causing ripples in the state's political circles. Hooda's media managers immediately tried to set the record straight by rubbishing the report.
It turned out that the provocation for such 'breaking news' was differences within the Congress over allotment of ticket for the Sonepat seat. Finance Minister Birender Singh, who is a relative of the chief minister, apparently wants the ticket but the Hooda camp is resisting.
