Shah targets Hooda, says he was serving ‘Delhi ke damaad’
Targeting former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday alleged that he had robbed the poor to serve “Delhi ke damaad”, an apparent reference to Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra.
He also lashed out at Hooda for describing the investigation initiated by government agencies against him as “political vendetta”, claiming the Congress leader was rattled as the BJP government had exposed how farmers were exploited under his rule and their money gifted to “Delhi durbar”.
Addressing the ‘Guarav Rally’ organised by Union Minister and prominent Jat leader Birender Singh here, Shah said Haryana has seen “unprecedented” development under Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who had provided a transparent and corruption-free government.
“Previous chief ministers of the state used to look after their own areas and supporters. I want to say here that Haryana has seen three Lals-- Bhajan Lal, Bansi Lal, Devi Lal--and (Bhupinder Singh) Hooda. “Hooda never spared any effort in robbing poor people of Haryana in order to serve Delhi ke damaad (Delhi’s son-in-law). Hooda’s circle was restricted to just taking care of his family, caste, village and relatives,” he said and promised that the Khattar government was for all.
