In his second rally in the state in the past eight days, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi attacked the Congress leadership and raked up the land acquisition policy of the Haryana government at Jhajjar on Monday.

Modi was here to seek support for party's Rohtak Lok Sabha nominee Om Prakash Dhankar, Bhiwani-Mahendergarh candidate Dharambir Singh and Sirsa candidate of its ally partner Haryana Janhit Congress, Sushil Indora.

In a scathing attack on dynastic politics of Nehru-Gandhi family, Modi dubbed RaGa as 'shehzaada' (prince) and said that he had been praising land acquisition policy of Haryana just for the simple reason that his brother-in-law Robert Vadra happened to be one of the beneficiaries.

"In Haryana, the father-son (Bhupinder-Deepender) duo is doing the business, while in Delhi, it is the mother-son (Sonia-Rahul) duo. As if it was not enough, so the son-in-law (damadjee)(Robert Vadra) has also joined the chorus," he said, while holding them responsible for 'cheating' the farmers by taking away their land holdings at dirt cheap prices.

Highlighting the farmers' issue, he said that Robert Vadra could earn Rs 50 crore in just three months without investing even a single paisa.
"Is anyone among you knows such a trick. This trick is known only to Shezaade's family," he said.

He urged the people to strengthen his hands by voting in favour of eight saffron party nominees and two HJC candidates in the state.

He said that RaGa who claimed that he didn't do the politics of anger, should know that it was him who had shown scant respect for the Parliament after he tore away the bill copies at a press conference to prove his authority.

Predicting the fate of the Congress, he said that Haryana was among the states where the Congress would not be able to win even a single seat.

In the bigger states, the Congress would not be able to touch the double digit, he said.
