Factionalism in Congress stumbling block for Hooda's return in Haryana

Updated : October 08, 2019 03:55 PM IST

Factionalism within the Congress and corruption charges against the party leadership are the main stumbling blocks that the two-time chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is facing in his seemingly last do-or-die battle in Haryana, according to political observers.
After facing a humiliating defeat in the 2014 assembly polls, Hooda was almost marginalised by the Congress factions—one led by former Union minister Kumari Selja, and the other by national spokesman Randeep Surjewala.
But recent raking up of allegations of nepotism and corruption publicly by Tanwar after resigning from the Congress has once again dampened the winning prospects of the Congress.
