IEP Chandigarh, August 28
Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal today raised concerns over Congress’s silence on Nuh Violence, even though the involvement of one of its MLAs has been questioned by the Police.
“Surprisingly, Congress is neither condemning their MLAs whose names have been dragged in this issue, nor they are giving any clarification, ” said Sh. Manohar Lal while addressing a press conference after the Vidhan Sabha session here today.
The Chief Minister said that not only has one of the Congress MLAs been issued a notice by the police, but fingers are also being pointed at some other MLAs from the party in connection with the Nuh violence incident.
“Despite these grave allegations, the Congress party has maintained a silence that is raising eyebrows. The absence of a response from them certainly proves that ‘Daal mai kuch kala hai'( something is suspicious),” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
He said that more than 300 people have been arrested in the Nuh violence and more than 160 FIRs have been registered and some people are being questioned, who are likely to have any connection to this violence.
Expressing gratitude to the citizens and other social organisations of Nuh for the peaceful conduct of the Shobha Yatra, Sh. Manohar Lal said the government had appealed to the district residents to maintain peace during the Shobha yatra.
“I am thankful to Nuh citizens and the social organisation for giving complete cooperation for the peaceful organisation of this Yatra,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
He said that the government had appealed to the people that the Jalabhishek should be done in the temples only.
“We are grateful to the workers of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the people of other social institutions and the Saint, Mahatmas, who peacefully completed the Jalabhishek in the temples, ” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
Responding to the question regarding a demand raised by the Opposition about allowing the judicial inquiry to be initiated under the sitting judge of Punjab and Haryana High Court to investigate the allegations raised against Minister of State Sandeep Singh, the Chief Minister said that the matter is still pending in the court.
However, in any case, an inquiry Commission is constituted once the investigation by the concerned investigating agency is completed.
“The investigation in this matter is currently being done by the Haryana Police, we have full faith in the police,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
He said that the bill of Sonipat Metropolitan Development Authority was also introduced in the House today, which will be passed after discussion tomorrow. Apart from this, it has also been announced to form the Hisar Metropolitan Development Authority in Hisar.
