Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah termed the decade-long Congress rule in Haryana as a period of land scams, on Sunday.
Saying that the Congress regime was marked by such scams where farmers’ lands were grabbed, he urged the people to script the Congress’s defeat in the upcoming assembly elections.
Shah said this at the Gannaur assembly segment of Sonepat district while campaigning for party candidate and Congress turncoat Jitender Malik.
Malik, a former Sonepat MP, will lock horns with Congress’ Kuldeep Sharma, a former Vidhan Sabha speaker.
Expressing gratitude for the saffron party’s Lok Sabha poll victory, Shah said, “You have already ousted the most corrupt government at the Centre — Congress-led-UPA.”
Indicating that it was time to vote in the same fashion in Haryana, he said that change was necessary in the state to steer it on to the track of real development, mocking the Congress’ Haryana number 1 slogan.
He also addressed election meetings in Kharkhoda and Baroda of Sonepat district in support of party candidates Kuldeep Kakran and Baljit Singh Malik respectively.
Saffron party parliamentarians Vijay Goyal, Anurag Thakur and Ramesh Kaushik also attended the meeting.
