According to a report, sitting MLA from Jind Hari Chand Middha has said that poor sex ratio is god's wish and there can't be done anything.
When asked about the dismal record of the area in male-female sex ratio, the medical practioner Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leader said, "This is all god's desire, there is nothing we can do about it (ye sab bhagwan ki marzi hai. Hum kuch nhi kar sakte),"
Sex Ratio in Jind stood at 871 per 1000 male compared to 2001 census figure of 852, while the average national sex ratio is 940. The district also has poor record in other Human developmental index. The average literacy rate of Jind in 2011 were 71.44 compared to 62.10 of 2001. Reports said that there is rampant female foeticide and infanticide in the area and that is apparently because of strong preference for sons.
Stepping up the ante, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday did a rally in the area, considered a Chautala bastion. Modi tried to puncture all tall and false claims of the INLD leaders. "You have made the entire Haryana blind with your broken ainak (glasses)." How long will you continue like this, Modi roared in rally.
Targetting the incumbent Government, Modi said as quoted by IBN, "Jind lagged behind in the pace of development due to petty politics of the parties which have been in power in the state. Those who won from here never cared for the welfare of the local population.
To humiliate, each-other, Congress leaders thwarted development of Jind. It is my request to vote BJP to power for five years, I assure you to bring a sea of change in your life by the means of development."
