Addressing the mediapersons after submitting the Memorandum, INLD leader Ajay Singh Chautala said that the state government is using the Land Acquisition Act as a tool to pressurize the farmers into selling theor priceless lands at the peanuts rates.
Accusing the chief minister Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda & his close friend & former minister Mr Venod Sharma of colluding for various scandals, Mr Ajay Chautala said that another Rs ten thousand crore scam in Ambala has been done by forcing the farmers of selling their priceless land after issuing them land acquisition notices.
Alaska Construction Company and Vatika, the two companies of Venod Sharma & his associates have purchased 100 acres, 40 acres, 16 acres and 2 acres respectively in villages Jandli, Kamli, Saunda and Sarai Mehdood after getting issued section 4 notices to 165.13 acre, 50.40, 33.18 acre and 3.86 acre lands, Ajay Chautala elaborated. The section 4 was got issued on 28 February, 2006 for the said lands but one month later i.e. on 6 April, 2006, the farmers were made to enter into Collaboration Agreement SPA and later sale deed was entered on 6 March, 2007. The license was got transferred in the name of M/S Alaska Construction limited through its Managing Director Rajnish Sharma, who is cousin of Mr Venod Sharma. This land was got released under section 5-A of the Land Acquisition Act, he further added.
After concluding the 662 km long foot-march across the state of Haryana for last 30 days, Ajay Chautala asserted that people want to get rid of this anti-people government at the earliest, so INLD-BJP combine would sweep the ensuing Lok Sabha & Vidhan Sabha elections. Count down of the Hooda led government has already begun. There is strong anti-incumbency against the government as there is no electricity or other basic amenities for the common-men, he added.
Haryana ministers and Congress MPs have put the people of the state to shame for their repeated scams, corrupt deals & scandals. Almost all the Congress MPs and ministers including chief minister have been in scams, controversies and scandals during the last four years, the NDA memorandum said.
Hooda government has cheated its electorate by not fulfilling any of its election promises like the non-completion of SYL canal, the selling of government jobs, controlling the rising unemployment, scrapping the VAT, increasing the FDI, constituting Development Council, Human Rights Commission, Minority Commission, SC/ST Commission, decentralization of power and foreign jobs to the youths, NDA leaders told the Haryana Governor.
More than Rs forty thousand crore scam has been done by Hooda government in land release scandal only, NDA memorandum said. There is wide spread corruption at higher levels and the highly placed government functionaries in the state are just concerned with monetary gains and property dealings at the cost of the people’s interests, NDA memorandum added.
NDA Memorandum said that the state government has failed on all fronts and the people of the state are suffering due to the most non-performing & corrupt government in the history of the state. He said that people were furious with the Congress party for un-fulfillment of election promises.
NDA leaders said that the state of Haryana has dropped to bottom in all indexes of development but is topping all the indicators of mal-governance and misrule. Referring to drastic deterioration of law & order in the state, NDA memorandum said that Haryana has become number one with increase in murders, rapes, abductions, kidnapping, robbery incidents since Mr Hooda has taken over as the chief minister.
In Haryana, there has been 27 per cent increase in number of rapes in 2008 in comparison to 2007, which is highest in the country. 7 incidents of rapes, kidnappings and murders are happening daily in small and peaceful state like Haryana. There has been 190 per cent increase in the dacoity incidents in 2007 in comparison to 2004 as 151 such incidents occurred in 2007. 553 looting incidents occurred in year 2008 in comparison to 245 in 2004. Sarita rape and suicide case, fake police encounters, Gurgaon police baton charge has also put bad name to the Haryana state.
NDA leaders demanded that high level probe should be conducted against the persistent corruption, loot of public money. The Government should be immediately sacked as it has lost all its faith and morality to continue in the office.
