Jind: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Thursday said the party had provided a corruption-free and stable government in Haryana.
Addressing BJP's `Yuva Hunkar Rally` at Pandu Pindara village in Jind district, he said, "ML Khattar (Chief Minister) has given a corruption-free government to Haryana. In this state, former CMs have gone to prison for corruption, and now there is a term of the BJP government where there is not even a single allegation of corruption him."
Shah added that the BJP`s governance model was to ensure equal development for all. "Today BJP is in government in 19 states, after March 3, (2018), it will be in power in 21 states," he said.

He maintained that the welfare schemes initiated by the Central and the Haryana governments were aimed at helping the farmers and the downtrodden.
Thousands of security personnel, including Haryana Police and para-military forces, kept a strict watch at the rally venue, areas surrounding it and Jind district and nearby areas.
BJP ministers and legislators arrived at the venue on motorcycles. The state BJP had asked workers to come to the rally on bikes.
The Opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) had threatened to show black flags to the BJP chief over the issue of non-construction of the SYL (Sutlej-Yamuna Link) canal and failure of the BJP to fulfil the promises made to the people of Haryana.
The police detained INLD leaders and workers in some districts to prevent them from reaching the rally venue. Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar was also detained in Jind town as he was planning to hold a protest.
