Two more cases of land acquisition during the Congress regime have been handed over to the CBI for investigation.

Chandigarh, Mar 13–The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, has said that two more cases of land acquisition during the Congress regime have been handed over to the CBI for investigation.
Replying to the questions of media persons here today, the Chief Minister said the former Chief Minister, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, should have the courage and honesty to admit to wrong-doing, and refrain from labelling the probe as a political conspiracy. There is no one, including those dear to them, whom the Congress has not cheated; they have not even spared the people of Rohtak district, he added.
Two other cases of land acquisition during the Congress rule which have been handed over to CBI include Uddar Gagan of Rohtak and three villages namely, Nangal, Aterna and Sersa of Sonepat. Land measuring 885 acres of these villages was to be acquired. But the question arises why land measuring 650 acres was released.
        The Chief Minister said now this case had been handed over to CBI and action would be taken on the basis of its findings. . 
        Referring to the Dhingra Commission report, Mr Manohar Lal said the Advocate General of Haryana had given an undertaking in the high court not to make this report public, and the Supreme Court had directed the high court to dispose of this case within a period of two months. Action would be taken as per recommendations.
        On the Pehowa audio tape incident, the Chief Minister disagreed with the Opposition stand and said, “As per procedure, first an inquiry would be conducted and an FIR would be registered against those found guilty.”
Hammering home the point, Mr Manohar Lal gave the example of two cases, one each during the Chautala and Hooda Governments. IAS officer Sanjeev Kumar had filed a petition in the Supreme Court after which investigation was conducted. After the investigation, FIR was registered. Similarly during the Congress regime, in the case of Mr. Karan Dalal regarding organic manure of Panipat, investigation was conducted first and action was taken later, he added.

Haryana Government has recommended CBI probe into the irregularities committed during the Congress regime in cases of land acquisition in Rohtak and Sonipat districts

Chandigarh, March 13–The Haryana Government has recommended CBI probe into the irregularities committed during the Congress regime in cases of land acquisition in Rohtak and Sonipat districts. The injustice done to the farmers will be revealed by the investigation.

          This was stated by the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, during zero hour of the Budget session of the Vidhan Sabha here, today.

          Coming down heavily on the Opposition, he said these leaders had no right to talk about the plight of farmers. They themselves had acquired the lands of farmers just to benefit some builders. Inka Aisa Koi Saga Nahi, Jinko Congress ne Thaga Nahi. (There is no one the Congress has not cheated).

          The Chief Minister said the state government had already handed over to the CBI investigations into three cases of re-allotment of a plot to Associated Journals Limited (AJL) in Panchkula, Industrial plot allotment by Haryana Sahri Vikas Pradhikaran in Panchkula, and the Manesar land case.

         The Supreme Court has, in its verdict, set aside the land acquisition process executed by the previous Congress Government in Manesar. It had threatened innocent farmers and extended huge benefits to real estate developers and builders in the name of land acquisition during their rule, he said.

       The court has termed such activities as mala fide exercise of powers and a clear case of misuse of power. Apart from this, the apex court has also ordered to investigate the role of middle men in land acquisition. Now everything would be revealed during the investigation, he added.

          He said the apex court had also ordered that decision on the Dhingra Commission, set up to probe grant of land licences to some companies, be announced within two months so that pending issues could be cracked.

          Responding to the charge-sheet handed over by the INLD over the irregularities committed during the Congress regime, the Chief Minister said it contained 290 pages and action was being taken on every issue after proper investigation. “We do not take action against any one in the spirit of revenge or out of political malice. All acts and decisions are taken only after investigation,” he added.
