Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday met the Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki over recent incidents of rape and murder in the state. Following his meet with the Governor, Hooda slammed the Manohar Lal Khattar-led government and said,
“there is lawlessness in the state. Haryana government has no leader. Some ministers are angry, some are sulking, there is no direction.”
On Tuesday, news agency ANI quoted Hooda saying, "Whatever is happening in Haryana, is unfortunate and a serious matter to discuss on. The law and order is just out of control of the BJP led-government in the state. Incidents which happened in Jind, Faridabad, Panipat and Binjalpur are really very shameful. I think the government must resign on moral grounds”
Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women (NCW) on Tuesday took suo motu cognisance of the Jind incident, wherein a Dalit girl was gang-raped and murdered on Sunday. The NCW has written a letter to Mamta Singh, Inspector General of Police (IPS) Crime against Women Police Headquarters in Panchkula, Haryana over the recent rape incidents.
