Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) senior leader and national political affairs committee member Yogendra Yadav on Sunday blamed Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda for thriving 'land mafia', incidents of rape and other corrupt practices in the state.
Addressing the media here, he said, “Congress ke tote ki gardan Haryana CM ke haath mein hai. Haryana ke log ab Aam Aadmi ka hi saath denge. (No one will dare to remove Haryana CM for he is close to senior Congress leadership. We are sure that people's support will be for Aam Aadmi Party).”
Yadav said their party will highlight corruption in Haryana in the run-up to the assembly elections. Bhupinder Singh Hooda cannot overlook all the wrongdoings in the state and he must take responsibility for all the alleged scams, the AAP leader said.
Talking about the rape victims of Bhagiana, he said the Haryana CM has remained unaffected by the agony of these rape victims. Yadav said the AAP has extended all support to these victims and will take their fight to a logical conclusion. He added that the victims have been sitting at Jantar Mantar for the past two months but none has paid heed to them. He said party's national convener Arvind Kejriwal would visit them on June 24 to express party's solidarity with the victims.
About the AAP's strategy for the assembly elections, he said senior party leaders are touring the state and meeting the workers to review the performance during the Parliamentary elections and their views on the ensuing assembly elections. He claimed that a reorganisation in the party was on cards and under 'Mission Vistar' the party aimed to connect with workers at the booth level and also at ward level. Yadav said the party is getting in touch with all its workers.
