While speaking to the media Deepender Hooda said that BJP was ducking the issues on the ground in Haryana while hiding behind national issues like Article 370.
"Article 370 is a national issue but BJP is ducking the issues on the ground in Haryana. I cast my vote against the failure of BJP," Hooda said.
He also supported Rahul Gandhi not visiting his constituency leading up to the polling. "Rahul Gandhi went where he was required. We are strong here, it was the right choice," he added.
Former Haryana Chief Minister and Deepender Hooda's father Bhupender Hooda and his wife also cast their vote.
The counting of votes for Haryana Assembly Elections will take place on October 24.
