Upping its ante for the forthcoming assembly polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday formed a high-powered committee under its firebrand legislator from Ambala Cantt Anil Vij to prepare a ‘charge sheet’ against the Congress regime’s misrule in the state.
The decision was taken by the state executive committee on the last day of its meeting held at Kurukshetra.
According to BJP state unit president Ram Bilas Sharma, Vij has been asked to prepare “data of acts of omissions and commissions committed under the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government”.
He said anti-people policies, including shady land deals, special economic zones (SEZs) and acquisition of farm lands would be put before the public.
Sharma said there would be special emphasis on amassing of ill-gotten money and properties by the Congressmen in its last 10-year of rule in Haryana.
He told reporters that state executive discussed the issue of whether to maintain coalition with the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) or not and the matter was left to the party’s central parliamentary board to take the final call.
Meanwhile, BJP sources said national general secretaries JP Nadda and Ram Lal were apprised of personal attacks made by the HJC leadership against the BJP leaders, including Sharma, Capt Abhimanyu, Karnal MP Ashwini Kumar Chopra Minna and others. “The central leadership has been told that the BJP is in upbeat mood and it should contest the elections alone,” said a BJP leader.
Meanwhile, on the speculations of joining some of the senior Cong ress leaders to BJP, including Birender Singh, Sharma refused to comment, stating that several leaders from other par ties were in touch with the BJP leadership.
“Names would be disclosed only after they are officially admitted to the party,” he said adding that the party leadership would soon start a mass contact programme and political rallies would be organised too.
