Vadra baiter Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjeet Singh quits Congress
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Congress MP from Gurgaon Rao Inderjeet Singh on Monday resigned from the party. Singh’s exit from the party was expected after he had openly turned against his party chief and the Haryana government by demanding "a thorough probe" into the land deals of Vadra, party chief Sonia Gandhi`s son-in-law.
He had also attacked Chief Minister Bhupender Singh Hooda for being "biased" with the people of south Haryana in allotting development projects and government jobs. South Haryana comprises the districts of Gurgaon, Faridabad, Mewat, Palwal, Rewari, Mahendergarh and Bhiwani.
A four-time legislator in Haryana since 1977, Rao Inderjit was first elected to the Lok Sabha in 1998, and re-elected in 2004 and 2009.
Importantly, Rao Inderjeet’s supporters have already announced the formation of a new political outfit.
The new party has been named the Haryana Insaf Congress and the younger daughter of Rao Inderjeet has been appointed its president.
