Chandigarh: Haryana's main opposition party Indian National Lok Dal on Friday launched a month-long 'Congress Pol Khol' (expose Congress) campaign in all districts of the state.
    
Public meetings will be held in villages and wards in all cities of all 90 Assembly constituencies of the state to make people aware of "misuse" of CBI against INLD leaders, land scams and "discrimination" in government jobs, Haryana INLD chief Ashok Arora said.
    
Issues like development, increase in the prices of petrol, diesel pesticides and cooking gas would also be raised, he said.
    
Arora said that the during the month-long campaign, INLD leaders will organise 8,000 public meetings in 7,000 villages and cities of the state.
    
"These meetings will be addressed by senior party leaders, MLAs and MPs who will disclose how the Congress government in Haryana has broken all records of corruption and was indulging in land scams," he alleged.
    
The 78-year-old INLD chief, Om Prakash Chautala, who was sent to Tihar Jail after his conviction, has sought interim bail on the ground that "he is unwell and suffering from various ailments".
    
Chautala, his MLA son Ajay Chautala and 53 others, including two IAS officers, were convicted on January 16 by the trial court for illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained (JBT) teachers in Haryana in 2000.
