Haryana minister Anil Vij has charged the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress regime with bending rules and giving 3,360 square metres of prime land in Panchkula to Associated Journals Ltd (AJL) ten years ago.
He said, the land was given to Associated Journals Ltd, the publisher of The National Herald newspaper, in upscale Sector 6 of Panchkula just six months after the Hooda government came to power in Haryana in 2005 at throwaway prices.

“We hope the matter will be inquired into as entire National Herald case is before the court,” Vij said.

Vij alleged that “it is a serious issue which has come to fore, which shows how rules were bend/ignored by the previous Hooda government, which gave 3,360 square metres of prime plot in Panchkula at throwaway prices”.

Vij, the five-time BJP MLA from Ambala Cantt, said another fact which has come to fore is that on August 14, 2014, two months before the Haryana Assembly polls, an Occupation Certificate (OC) was issued for the four-storey building on the plot.

Asked that about reports saying AJL plot was categorised as “government office” and HUDA records showing that it valued the property at Rs 59.3 lakh when it was allotted, Vij said, when Herald case is before courts, “we hope all these facts which have come to light now would be taken cognisance of”.

Vij said, according to reports, it has also come to light from the AJL’s records that on March 20, 2015, “Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s son Deepinder Singh was appointed as Additional Director in the company”.

Haryana BJP President Subhash Barala said Panchkula plot issue was also connected with the National Herald case.

“Former CM Hooda will have to answer to the public now. People of Haryana are watching. People did not spare them in elections last year, but in coming years people would question them about their wrongdoings,” Barala told reporters in Jhajjar.

Training guns at the Hoodas, INLD MP Dushyant Chautala said Panchkula plot had been virtually given for free by the then Congress government.

“It just goes on to show how they looted Haryana”.

When asked to comment on the issue, Rohtak MP Deepinder Singh Hooda told reporters in Rohtak, “let them inquire what they have to…I have nothing more to say”.

K T Rama Rao

Hyderabad, Jan 16 : Telangana Health Minister Eatala Rajender on Saturday decided not to take Covid vaccine, following a suggestion from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to politicians to give priority to healthcare workers.

The minister was scheduled to take the vaccine at Gandhi hospital on the first day.

Following the national rollout of the programme by the Prime Minister, Rajender formally launched vaccination at the hospital but returned without taking the jab.

Minister for Industry and Information Technology K.T. Rama Rao later told reporters that the decision was taken on the Prime Minister’s suggestion.

“I am the captain of this (health) department,” Rajender had remarked while defending his decision to inoculate himself, at a news conference on Friday evening.

However, the health minister changed his mind after Modi’s suggestion. Following requests of politicians from some states, the Prime Minister advised them to wait and give preference to healthcare workers.

Public representatives are ready to take the vaccine but they will wait in view of the Prime Minister’s suggestion, said Rama Rao after inaugurating the vaccination at a centre at Tilak Nagar in Hyderabad.

A total of 4,000 healthcare workers are taking the vaccine at 139 centres across Telangana on Saturday.
