Attacking the BJP Government in Haryana for its failure to check violence by Dera followers in the state, the Congress, CPI(M) and CPI) demanded the resignation of Haryana Chief Minister M L Khattar owning moral responsibility for largescale violence which calimed the lives of 32 people and injury to over 200.
The Congress said ManoharLal has set new standard for 'maximum government, minimum governance'.
In a series of tweets, senior Congress leader and AICC senior spokesperson P Chidambaram said, 'PM Modi's exhortation turned on its head by CM Khattar.
Haryana's mantra is 'maximum government, minimum governance'.
He said the violence in Sirsa and Panchkula were examples of BJP's administrative competence.
'Gorakhpur hospital deaths, Muzaffarnagar train accident, Sirsa-Panchkula riots are examples of BJP's administrative competence,' Chidambaram said.
The Politburo of the CPI(M) has expressed its serious concern over the violence that has crippled the state of Haryana.
In a statement here today, the CPM said despite having knowledge and widespread apprehension of trouble and violence, the BJP Government and Chief Minister of Haryana did not take adequate preventive measures.
This serious dereliction of duty by the State government created a situation of complete breakdown of Law and Order.
Communist Party of India (CPI) General Secretary SuravaramSudhakar Reddy today demanded the resignation of Haryana Chief Minister ManoharLalKhattar for failing to contain widespread violence claiming many lives, arson and police firing following the conviction for rape of DeraSachaSauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
Mr Reddy found fault with Mr Khattar for not taking necessary steps to control the violence even though several hundreds of Dera Chief followers had gathering in the Court premises.
Reddy also recalled that the Chief Minister had also failed to control violence during the Jat agitation that led to loss of life and property.
“There is nothing wrong in demanding resignation of Haryana Chief Minister because he had failed and was not an efficient CM.
