Every inch of land released during Cong regime to be probed: Har Govt
Haryana government on Tuesday said it is committed to probe the release of "every single inch" of land released during the previous Congress regime.

State Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu stated this in a written reply to a question raised during the Question Hour,in Haryana Assembly on Tuesday.

Abhimanyu, who also holds the industry department portfolio, informed the House that during past 14-years, 3192 Change of Land Use (CLUs) had been approved.

The Minister said that during the last ten years of erstwhile Congress government, 4500 acres of land had been released when the acquisition process had reached advanced stage.

However, Leader of Opposition and senior INLD leader, Abhay Singh Chautala while intervening in the issue, said that his party had earlier come out with a "chargesheet" against the previous Congress government.

Chautala also claimed that through a RTI reply they had come to know that actually 16,000 acres of land had been released by the previous Congress regime from the official acquisition process after it had issued notifications to acquire them for "public purpose".

"The land released is 16,004 acres and not 4500 acres," the INLD leader said.

Chautala said that his party MLAs had often been raising the issues of alleged land scandals of the erstwhile Congress government inside the previous assembly.

BJP's Balwant Singh Sadhaura had raised the issue during the Question Hour and sought to know the district wise details of persons to whom the CLU has been given by the government from 2000 to 2014.

When Abhimanyu informed the House that detailed reply to the question had been provided in a CD, some Congress MLAs sought laptops to read the entire document.
