Bhupinder Singh Hooda took over the reins of Haryana as Chief Minister in 2005. In 2009 he again led Congress victory to a thumping victory and became Chief Minister for record second term. This is for the first time since 1972 that any party has come back to power consecutively. The exemplary success is attributed to Hooda’s charisma. Haryana CM is also the member of Punjab & Haryana Bar Council.
