Chandigarh: Opposition parties in Haryana on Tuesday submitted a memorandum to the Governor seeking dismissal of the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government following its alleged involvement in the Robert Vadra`s controversial land deals.

A 14-member delegation of BJP-HJC leaders also demanded a probe into the matter and other land scams by a sitting Supreme Court Judge.

"We are seeking a high level probe by a sitting Judge of the Supreme Court in the Vadra`s controversial land deals and other scams that have hit the Hooda government," state BJP president Ram Bilas Sharma, who led the delegation to Governor Jagannath Pahadia, told reporters here.

"Very soon, we will also be meeting the President and submit a memorandum to him as well," he said.

Terming the Hooda government as "most corrupt", Sharma said, "It`s long that we have been raising our voice over several misdeeds of this government. Not only its role in the Vadra`s controversial land deals but its involvement with several persons in different shady land deals in Gurgaon, Palwal and Faridabad has been exposed.

"The way the Hooda government has permitted thousands of Change of Land Use during the past nine years, it seems as if it is a government of the property dealers," Sharma alleged.

Talking about the rise in crimes against women in the state, the BJP leader said, "This government has also created record on the law and order front, with rising crimes against women and atrocities against Dalits exposing their misrule."

Meanwhile, Sharma said party chief Rajnath Singh and other senior leaders like Sushma Swaraj would be addressing a rally scheduled in Sonipat on October 6.
