Chandigarh: Haryana's main opposition party INLD Thursday attacked Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who completed two years in office yesterday, for failing to improve the state's fiscal health and law and order situation.
"Law and order and fiscal health have taken a turn for the worse since the BJP came to power two years back," INLD senior leader Abhay Singh Chautala alleged today.
Before the assembly polls in 2014 the BJP had made tall promises to the people, but failed to fulfill them once it came to power in the state, he told reporters here.
"Like the previous Congress government, the Khattar government too have failed to take any concrete steps to improve the state's fiscal health, even as debt kept on mounting," he claimed.
"The investor summits, such as Happening Haryana Summit held in Gurugram this year, has failed. We challenge the government to show us new investments," he said.
Government employees are still waiting for Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to fulfill his promises.
Taking a dig at the Khattar-led government on law and order, he alleged, "Law and order has broken down in the state. Each day three rape incidents are reported in Haryana while atrocities on Dalits and women have increased during the BJP rule".
"The Khattar government had failed to control the Jat stir in February, which claimed 30 lives and resulted in massive damage to property at various places in the state," he said, adding all this happened because of the government's failure.
Chautala said the BJP government had not taken concrete steps for farmers' welfare.
"They went back on their promise to implement recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission report," he said, alleging on the contrary the Fasal Bima Yojana was being "thrust" on farmers much "against their will".
"Also, the government which calls itself farmer friendly has failed to appoint a chairman for the Kisan Aayog," he added.
