Released on bail after being arrested in the Geetika Sharma suicide case, former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda has shifted his attention to the Haryana assembly polls.

Having floated his own political outfit — Haryana Lokhit Party — a couple of months back, Kanda has decided to field candidates in all the 90 assembly seats. His party has launched an aggressive advertisement campaign to woo voters.

Stating that the Geetika Sharma suicide case would not have any effect, Kanda, who was released on bail in March this year, said, “The people of Haryana will support me and prove that these were all false allegations.”

He claimed his party already has 12 lakh members. “It was due to this response that we decided to go it alone, without forging any alliance,” he said. Kanda said he would contest from Sirsa, while his younger brother, Govind, would be the candidate from Rania.

    This is a perfect example of flawed judicial and law enforcement system of india. One girl and her mother lost their lives because of this beast and he is out on bail. This case will go on and on for next 20 years, during this period the victims family will go through all sorts of mental and/or physical torture. Finally as we all can predict this criminal will be acquitted in the court. Shameful justice system, which is only for the rich
