Surjewala seeks probe by HC Judge into land transfer deeds, liquor scam

Chandigarh, July 23

Congress party communications incharge Randeep Singh Surjewala has demanded a probe by a sitting Judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court into registry and liquor scams.

Levelling serious corruption charges on the state government during a press conference, Surjewala said during the lockdown, instead of fighting the battle against Covid, a controversy had erupted in the wake of liquor scam. Now, a multi-crore registry scam had also come to light.

"The registry scam has once again proved the prevailing corruption in the state during the Khattar-Chautala regime," he said. He sought reasons as to why the details of the registry scam were not being shared with people. There was a visible effort to safeguard the culprits, he alleged.

"There are several complaints of illegalities in the registration process during the lockdown, especially in Gurugram, Sonepat and Faridabad. However, the government was trying to hush up the matter," he alleged.

He asked the government whether it had received complaints on developing illegal colonies, illegitimate registry and concession deeds, and defrauding the treasury of the government. If so, then why was the government not exposing and acting against the culprits and the land mafia? he asked. — TNS
