Surjewala slams BJP govt

Congress National General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala slammed the BJP-led government in Haryana over the incident.

Surjewala said 'maha jungle raj' prevailed in Haryana, where criminals were having a free run. "Where is the government? The criminals have no fear of the law, as the attackers not only looted the businessman, but also locked him in the car and set it on fire," he said. He said the NCRB data for 2019 verified the spurt in heinous crimes during the BJP rule.
