Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda day hit out at the opposition INLD for "misleading" people about the allotment of lands in the state. (Agencies)
Hooda said that not even a single inch of land has been given to any developer by the Government and challenged the opposition that if proved, he would quit.
INLD had given an adjournment motion regarding "irregularities committed in the purchase of land in Haryana by Skylight hospitality company and the controversy connected therewith," but it lapsed yesterday and could not be taken up as the opposition members had been named by the Speaker for their unruly conduct.
Hooda said that it was wrong to say that any land was given to Skylight hospitality and criticised the opposition for misleading the people on the issue.
Targeting the INLD, whose members were not present in the Assembly as they were suspended for the second day today by the Speaker for their "unruly" behaviour, Hooda said "they (INLD) are the dark past and we are the bright future of Haryana. I think there is no use flogging a dead horse".
Replying on the discussion on Governor's address, Hooda targeted the principal opposition party on various fronts.
"I have to say with regret the way they have behaved in the House. They are running away from issues and have not played constructive role and behaved as an irresponsible opposition," he said.
Hooda referred to the issue of acquisition of land and release from acquisition proceeding during 1999 to 2004 (when INLD-BJP was in power) and during the tenure of the present Government from 2005 onwards.
Hooda said that while from 1999 to 2004, 20 percent of the area was licensed after release of land vis-a-vis the total licensed area in the state. As compared to it, from the year 2005 onwards, this percentage was 15.
