INLD opens front against Cong on Thermal plant name change
Panipat, Mar 3 (UNI) Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) supremo Om Prakash Chautala today opened a front against the Hooda government over changing the name of Tau Devi Lal Termal Power Plant which started production on October 16, 2004 after President APJ Abdul Kalam inaugurated it.
Addressing a rally here at the Mini Secretariat Ground, the former Chief Minister said this proves the Congress is feeling jealous of the late leader's name hovering over the entire state.
He asked Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to resign on moral grounds in lieu of not fulfilling promises made with the people during the elections.
Mr Chautala urged the rally to retain their energy in order to oust the Hooda government from power.
Lamenting the serious law and order situation in the state, Mr Chautala said there was an increase in cases of rapes with minors and atrocities against the dalits. Farmers too are facing tough times in Hooda's regime as power production has fallen sharply to 48 per cent, he said.
The State Government is planning to import wheat at a much hefty price they pay to the farmers, he said. The Hooda Government has fallen flat on the power front as well as lack of water for irrigation purpose, non-availabilty of manures at affordable price and various other factors have added to the woes of farmers, Mr Chautala alleged.
Corruption is looming large in the state as the government is taking away the cases back pending against the corrupt officials, he said.
Earlier, Mr Ajay Singh Chautala held the state government responsible for cheating the people in the name of fake promises. No indication of development nor employment opportunities have been generated in the one year regime of the Hooda led Congress government. Vigilance raids have increased drastically during this period, opined Mr Ajay Chautala. Hooda has no answers to the SYL canal bringing it to the land of Haryana, said Mr Ajay Chautala adding that the Government has fallen on all fronts.
Hooda has played with the feelings of the people changing the name of the thermal power plant, said Mr Ajay Chautala.
