Nexus behind scams, claims Selja, leads stir

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 13

Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Kumari Selja alleged that despite the Covid pandemic, scams were taking place in the state with the connivance of the BJP-JJP government and officials.

In the past six years, Haryana had been looted heavily in liquor and registry scams, she alleged, and called for an inquiry by a sitting High Court judge.

She was addressing a protest meeting at Nuh on Thursday against the series of scams that have taken place in the Khattar regime.

The protests were organised at the district level across the state. Memorandums were submitted to Deputy Commissioners in the name of the Governor and a demand was made to get these scams investigated by a sitting judge of the High Court.

“The strings of the liquor mafia are directly linked to politicians and high officials. Efforts are being made by the government to suppress the scam,” she added. The CM had rejected the proposal of Special Investigation Team (SIT) and replaced it with the formation of Special Enquiry Team (SET) which did not have the powers to get to the bottom of this scam, she pointed out.

“The Deputy Chief Minister of the state is rejecting the SET report and the Chief Minister has rejected his claim. Had this scam been investigated in a fair manner, the involvement of many people would have been revealed,” she said.

On illegal registries, she said that no-objection certificates (NOCs) were not taken from District Town Planners (DTPs) and irregularities had been found in registries in the control area of more than 30 urban local bodies of Haryana.

She also cited scams in paddy purchase, Aravalli land use, mining, roadways km scheme, HSSC recruitment, SC scholarships and electricity meters.

Jhajjar/Rewari: The Congress protest at Jhajjar was led by MLA Geeta Bhukkal and at Rewari by former minister Capt Ajay Singh Yadav (retd).

“Only show-off is being done in the name of investigation and main perpetrators are being shielded by the government,” alleged Bhukkal.

Yadav said that the series of scams had exposed government’s tall claims of honesty, good governance and transparency.

Karnal: At Karnal, Assandh MLA Shamsher Singh Gogi, district convener Trilochan Singh and other senior leaders led the protest and accused the government for shielding kingpins in the scams. “The BJP-JJP government has become a scam government,” said Gogi.
