I have always advocated the idea of professionals joining the politics and bringing in their expertise for a larger cause. Haryana is my birth state and through HJC I will get an opportunity to serve the people of Haryana.”
About the party president and leader Kuldeep Bishnoi, Batra said, “earlier he was my brother/friend and now he has become my leader as well; Kuldeep is a young, dynamic and honest leader who is deeply committed to the cause of the state of Haryana and its people. I like him for his simplicity, humility and determination. He is a true ‘karmayogi’ and a passionate visionary. The victory in Hissar Lok Sabha by poll has established him as the tallest and most
acceptable leader in the state. He is definitely the most credible contender for the Chief Minister’s position in the next elections. I would like to assist him in achieving party’s objectives and in that process would do my best to benefit the society.”
