Commenting on the ongoing CLU issue in Haryana, Dr KD Singh, MP, Rajya Sabha and Head- North India, All India Trinamool Congress (North Zone) said that a CD showing Congress MLAs taking crores of rupees as bribes in CLU returns has brought forward the true face of the state government to the people of Haryana and it is clear that the government has turned the land-use change process into a money minting machine.
He further added that such an unethical and corrupt government has no right to remain in power even for a moment. Dr. Singh said a case should be registered against all those MLAs who can be seen taking the bribe in the CD and their State Assembly membership must be suspended until they are proven innocent.
“There had been rumours about these illegal transactions around CLU returns for years, but now finally there is solid evidence that proves that MLAs and ministers are involved in this immoral business, Dr. Singh said.
The Trinamool MP added that the Haryana government must now bring forward the details of all CLUs done in the last eight years in the form of a white paper. The Haryana government should have allowed discussion on the issue in the House in lieu of such serious allegations instead of suspending the opposition, he said.
“Suspending the opposition from the House is a murder of democracy and it raises serious doubts on the government’s intention to follow its constitutional duties with responsibility, the MP said.
