Karontha violence: INLD demands Hooda govt's dismissal, submits memo to Guv

Accusing the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government of failing to maintain law and order in state, a delegation of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) submitted a memorandum to Haryana governor Jagannath Pahadia on Wednesday demanding dismissal of the state government and fresh elections in state besides a judicial inquiry in the recent Karontha village clash incident in which three persons were killed.

Led by Abhey Chautala, MLA from Ellenabad, and party state president Ashok Arora, the delegation comprised of several party MLAs and office-bearers.

Before submitting the memorandum, Chautala during his interaction with newspersons on Wednesday alleged that Hooda and his son, Deepender Hooda (Rohtak MP), were responsible for the incident, as they had failed to avert the situation in which three persons were killed and several others were injured.

Chautala said Hooda was aware of the brewing tension since past two months; still he did nothing to resolve the issue.

Before this, he said, the peacefully protesting labourers were also lathi-charged in Gurgaon. Orders were even issued to open fire on the peacefully protesting temporary teachers, in which a teacher Sarita was killed.

He also referred to incidents of Ambala, Bhiwani, Hansi and Mayyar, in which people were killed during police firing. He alleged that at least 20 people have died in similar situations during Hooda's rule.

Referring to the arrest of an ASI, who was posted at CM's residence and was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 1 lakh on Tuesday, he said: “If this is the situation outside the CM's residence, then what would be the situation inside the house?”

He said that Hooda did not trust the IAS and IPS officers of Haryana cadre which was the reason why he was bringing them from other states on deputation.
