Union human resource development minister Smriti Irani has accused chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda of benefitting industrialists and Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra after snatching farmers’ land during his 10-year rule.

Addressing a gathering at Gandhi camp here on Tuesday while seeking votes for Rohtak BJP candidate Munish Grover, Irani, in an indirect reference to Robert Vadra, said people of the agrarian state do not need any proof that how Hooda and his family members worked solely for the interests of selected few by legalising farmers’ land in the name of ‘damad-ji’.

Invoking the death of Rajbala, a native of Haryana, during the 2013 Ramlila ground episode involving yoga guru Ramdev after the midnight swoop of Delhi Police, she said be it Delhi or any other place, the Congress-ruled states had left no stone unturned in committing atrocities on women.

Quoting her own example, she said when she had come to protest against rise in crime against women in Rohatk in the past, the police did not relent in using force on her for raising a social issue.

“Apki voton ne Delhi ka andkar do door kar diya hain, ab Haryana ka or kar do (Your votes for the BJP in Lok Sabha elections routed the Congress in Delhi, now vote for the saffron party in assembly polls in the name of good governance and development),” she added.

Highlighting power scenario, she said while the BJP-ruled states are equipped to supply round-the-clock power to people, Haryana, which used to be in better condition earlier, has utterly failed to do good on this front.
