Hooda, who is the father of Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, was conferred with the honorary degree on his 93rd birthday by Kurukshetra University Vice Chancellor R.P. Hooda.
Speaking on the occasion, an emotional Haryana chief minister said that it was a special day for him not only because his
father was being honoured on his
birthday but also because it was on this day (Nov 26) that the constitution was adopted by the Constituent Assembly of which his
father was the youngest member.
