New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Shah on Sunday launched a scathing attack on former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda by saying that the minister had served the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Robert Vadra, to the ‘fullest of his potential’.
Amit Shah was attending the BJP rally in Jind which was organised by Union Minister of steel Birender Singh. The minister had joined BJP two years ago after quitting Congress in the presence of Amit Shah.
In his censure of Hooda, Amit Shah said, “Hooda left no stone unturned in looting Haryana residents to fill the pockets of his family members and Delhi’s son-in-law (Vadra). Now that his scams are coming out in inquiries, he is crying foul.”
“Scams worth 12 lakh crore were reported during the UPA government. On the contrary, there has been no corruption under the Modi government during the past two-and-a-half years,” Shah added.
The BJP President, however, had praises for the Manohar Lal Khattar government as he said that the sex ratio in the state had improved and that development had occurred by making Haryana a kerosene-free state. “It has been decided to give Rs 30,000 crore additional funds to the Haryana under the 14th Finance Commission as compared to 13th,” said Shah.
