INLD shutdown call during CM`s Sirsa visit `undemocratic`: Cong
Chandigarh: Haryana Congress on Sunday termed
opposition INLD`s shutdown call for April 3 in Sirsa district,
the day when Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is to lay
foundation stones of many projects there, as "undemocratic".
"We strongly criticise the `bandh` call given by Abhey
Chautala. It is an undemocratic step and a mere gimmick on
part of Chautala family to garner public support," HPCC
spokesman Ved Prakash Vidrohi said in a statement.
Abhey, MLA from Ellenabad in Sirsa district and younger
son of former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, has given a
shutdown call to protest alleged lack of amenities like water
and power and deteriorating law and order situation.
On April 3, Hooda is to lay foundation stones of several
projects, including that of a 33 KV sub stations at Panihari
and inaugurate others.
"INLD might have some grievances regarding the
development of Sirsa and they are welcome to share those
during the session of the Legislative Assembly or at more
appropriate times," Vidrohi said.
INLD has in the past accused the ruling Congress of
discrimination against Sirsa in initiating development
"Isn`t it a poor joke to ask and blame Congress
government for the backwardness of Sirsa at this point ... all
these false accusations is only a vent for the frustration
generated due to their (INLD`s) loss in the October 2009
assembly elections," he alleged.
