Terming the change of land use in the Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex master plan as the mother of all scams,the INLD on Monday demanded an inquiry by a sitting judge into the issue. Accusing Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda of blatantly favouring former state minister Gopal Kanda,the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) secretary general Ajay Singh Chautala said: “It seems that the government has failed to learn from court judgments on the Gurgaon,Jhajjar and Rohtak land deals. In a shameless manner,it not only converted prime agriculture land bought by former minister Gopal Kanda’s cronies but also overturned the Draft Development Plan of the Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex,2031.”

Chautala further alleged that apart from Kanda,such decisions were part of a greater nexus that facilitated projects of a few other leaders as well. He promised to expose the Hooda government’s various scams,particularly,he added,where the government had connived with builders and realtors. “The Chief Minister should quit after being exposed badly on all fronts. These are nothing but clear cases of the government’s criminal intent,where it has taken its usual route to hobnob with builders to dupe the public and rob the state exchequer,” Chautala said.

Ridiculing the government for preparing the master plan up to 2031,Chautala said that while the Congress-led central government was unsure of its survival,the party’s most vulnerable chief minister was planning for 2031 “as if his government was going to survive till then”.

“This government will fall under its own burden. We will take our fight to the people of the state as we don’t expect justice from the ruling party which should have acted by now over this blatant misuse of authority. No wonder that this is all being done under the protection of the Congress high command,” Chautala added.

Bishnoi joins issue,demands action

The Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) on Monday waded into the controversy over the change of land use in the Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex master plan. Addressing a rally at Hisar,party supremo Kuldeep Bishnoi said the whole revision exercise of the Gurgaon Manesar master plan smacked of criminal intent by the government. “This government is hobnobbing with criminals. Kanda is so powerful that he could get the master plan changed for a mere 40 acres. The state government’s shameless silence over the issue is more painful than the act. The chief minister owes an explanation to the people of the state on why there was a need to change the master plan within three years of its last revision. Wads of currency notes seemed to have changed hands and it has also exposed the Kanda’s tremendous influence over the Hooda government,” Bishnoi said.
