Haryana Congress President Bhajan Lal on Tuesday alleged that state businessmen were being forced to migrate to other states because of the heavy taxes and imposition of VAT on them by the Om Parkash Chautala Government.

"This tax has ruined the business of the Haryana traders," Lal said addressing people of the villages of Bania, Sanjarwas, Sanward, Bapora, Dhanana and Tigrana in the district to seek votes for his son Kuldeep Bishnoi, who is contesting Lok Sabha elections from here.

Alleging that Chautala has deprived thousands of Government employees of their bread and butter by effecting retrenchments, he promised to take back all those retrenched employees back if Congress comes to power in the state in the next elections.

He also alleged that the Chief Minister was victimising his political opponents.
