INLD charges Haryana minister with corrupt practices
Chandigarh: Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Saturday alleged that Haryana Health Minister Rao Narender Singh was indulging in "corrupt practice" for getting permission for `Change of Land Use` (CLU) for a piece of land in Palwal district.
However, the Minister denied the charge while terming it as false and baseless and said the CD, released by INLD leader Abhay Singh Chautala at a press conference here today claiming to prove the charge, was fake.
Chautala alleged that the Minister could be seen "entering into a deal with unidentified persons for getting CLU done for a 30-acre colony in Palwal on May 22 this year.
"We demand that the minister should be sacked and an FIR should be lodged against him," Chautala said here.
Rebutting the charge, Rao Narender said that his father late Rao Bansi Singh and his family has a background of service and dedication of four decades.
"Levying baseless allegations and using indecent language have become a part of their routine," he alleged.
"Under the same spirit of revenge, Abhay Chautala has issued a fake CD and has levied false and baseless allegations On him," he said.
Meanwhile, a day ahead of Haryana Congress` rally, INLD posed 20 questions to Bhupinder Singh Hooda, seeking his reply on several issues including alleged "worsening" of state`s law and order situation, atrocities on Dalits, power shortage, rising power tariff and non-construction of SYL canal.
"We want to ask 20 questions to Haryana CM to which he should give answers to the public during tomorrow`s rally at Gohana," Chautala said.
Accusing Haryana government of failing to maintain law and order in the state, Chautala said crime against women, including rape, had risen.
"Dalit families have left their homes in Haryana because of atrocities against them under the Hooda-led regime," Chautala alleged.
"Had Haryana CM given any assurance to Dalit families and weaker sections of the society for containing brutal incidents against them?" he asked.
The INLD leader also alleged that Hooda was protecting several Congress men and MLAs who were found indulging in corrupt practices.
Claiming that Haryana government, in 2005, had promised that the state would be power surplus in two years, Chautala said till now consumers were facing heavy load shedding.
He also took a dig at Congress government in the state for allegedly selling agricultural land at "nominal" prices to big corporates while acting as their "agent".
