Expressing deep anguish and outrage over yet another shameful episode involving Haryana minister of state for home and local bodies Gopal Kanda, the Haryana unit of CPM has demanded his immediate arrest.
“His resignation from the ministry is inadequate and mere eyewash. In view of the serious charges, he must be arrested by the Delhi police immediately“, said party state secretary Inderjit Singh at Rohtak on Monday.
Singh said that that Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda also owes an explanation to the public as how the chief minister could remain unaware of his immediate subordinate minister’s conduct being himself in-charge of the Home portfolio.
The party committee stated alleged that the chief minister conveniently preferred to condone such other criminal acts of Kanda and his close accomplices in the past.
“The recent expose of certain ruling party legislators of Rohtak district being linked to the infamous Apna Ghar episode of child and women abuse also needs to be taken cognizance of,” he said.
Reacting to another unfortunate incident of recovery of body of Fiza, estranged wife of former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan, the CPM said that the mysterious death of Fiza needed to be thoroughly probed by an independent agency.
“This is necessary in view of her marriage and subsequent desertion by the then deputy chief minister Chander Mohan”, the party said in a statement.
