Chandigarh: BJP Chief Amit Shah on Sunday launched a blistering attack on the ruling Congress in Haryana and claimed that the state's development is possible if the saffron party gets a clear mandate in the October 15 Assembly polls.

He also slammed Congress President Sonia Gandhi for attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday at a poll rally. She had said, "Being loud doesn't mean you are speaking the truth."

The BJP leader said that farmers, women and youth in Haryana have been shouting at top of their voice, as "injustice" had been meted out to them by the state government.

"Corruption has ruled the roost during the Congress rule. Time has come to throw this regime out," he said, addressing poll rallies at Ganaur and Kharkhauda as part of his tour of the state for campaigning.

BJP is for the first time contesting on all the 90 Assembly seats on its own.

Shah, who had earlier this week campaigned in Tohana, Narnaund and Ambala, kept up his tirade against the Hooda government, alleging that it had snatched farmers' land and handed it over to the powerful builders.

He alleged that the land of farmers had been "snatched", atrocities against women had increased while the youth was unemployed.

"Why is their voice not being heard when they have been shouting at top of their voice?" Shah said.

He said if BJP comes to power in Haryana, it will probe the alleged acts of ommission and commission by the state government.

The BJP President also launched an attack on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. "(Congress leader) Digvijay Singh had said that Rahul Gandhi's silence on critical issues had contributed to their (Congress') loss. It is good that he (Rahul) did not speak, otherwise imagine what would have been their (Congress') fate in the Lok Sabha polls," he said in Ganaur.

Targeting the previous UPA government at the Centre and the Congress government in Haryana, he said the country had never before witnessed rule by such "hopeless" governments.
