Aam Aadmi Party launched its LokSabha election campaign in Haryana on Sunday where it tore into Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and accused him of being involved in corrupt land deals with Reliance.
Addressing a rally in Rohtak, which is the home turf of Hooda, Kejriwal called him a property broker. “Hooda is not the CM but a property dealer,” he said.
Kejriwal, who had earlier taken up issues of land acquisition and Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra’s dealings in the state, accused Hooda of giving out land at cheaper rates to Reliance. “Hooda has given 8000 acres of land to Reliance for just a few lakhs,” he alleged.
Recalling that he is yet to receive a reply from BJP’s PM nominee NarendraModi on gas price hike, Kejriwal attacked BJP of being hands in glove with the Ambani brothers.
Hitting out at both Rahul Gandhi and Modi, Kejriwal quipped, “whether there is Modi or Gandhi, in reality it is the Ambanis who rule the nation.”
He questioned BJP’s silence on its attack on Reliance over gas pricing. For this he cited that the BJP was receiving monetary gains from Reliance for all their political rallies. He said, “I wrote to Modi thrice about gas pricing, about his party’s relation with Reliance and who is funding his mega rallies, he is yet to reply.”
