A delegation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) on Tuesday called on Haryana governor Jagannath Pahadia and submitted a memorandum, demanding expulsion of the government, midterm polls and immediate arrest of former minister Gopal Kanda.
The activists alleged that the Congress government had crossed all limits of lawlessness and corruption in the state and various Congress leaders had been found involved in criminals cases.
A total of 14 leaders, led by Haryana BJP president Krishan Pal Gurjar, told mediapersons that besides arrest of Kanda, who was allegedly responsible for the suicide of a former airhostess of his MDLR Airlines in Delhi, they had also sought his expulsion from the assembly. Gurjar said the Congress government had lost political, constitutional and moral ground to continue and should thus be expelled.
He alleged that Kanda had earlier been named in other cases of gangrape, assault on cricketer and income tax officials. The BJP leaders, including Rambilas Sharma, Ghanshyam Saraf, Kavita Jain, RL Kataria and Gianchand Gupta, and HJC leaders, including Dharamvir Yadav, Sube Singh Punia and Hari Singh Nalwa, alleged that various other Congress leaders such as Om Prakash Jain, Jile Ram Sharma, Dan Singh, Rao Narender Singh and Ram Kishan Fauji were also named in several criminal cases.
The activists also alleged that the government was "influencing" the CBI probe in the sexual abuse of several inmates at Apna Ghar shelter home in Rohtak, hometown of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. They further alleged involvement of three Congress MLAs who had promoted and recommended state award to the shelter home.
