CPI(M) Expresses Concern Over Law And Order Situation In Haryana

THE Haryana state committee of the Communist Party Of India (Marxist) has expressed deep concern over the fast deteriorating law and order situation in the state. In a statement issued on Party state secretary Inderjit Singh strongly condemned the ghastly murder of Bhiwani municipal councillor Nand Lal Chawla in broad daylight on June 23, 2008. “This only highlights the plight of common citizens in the state when prominent leaders are not safe”, the statement noted.


The assassination of Chawla has glaringly exposed the actual situation in Haryana with regard to the safety of life and property of common people. The CPI(M) state secretariat also felt that this murder is not an ordinary crime but appeared to be the planned conspiracy carried out by very powerful lobby like land mafia. It demanded probe by an independent inquiry while the culprits be arrested soon.


The Party also expressed surprise over continued silence of the chief minister Bhupender Singh Hooda despite repeated failures of the law enforcing agencies. “The crime rate is spurting in the state and common people are living under fear while the criminals are let loose. The CM in this situation should assure the people as to how he would fulfill his promise of providing fearless atmosphere to citizens. Being himself incharge of the home portfolio he should publicly come out with concrete  steps to instill the feeling of security among the peopl”, demanded the CPI(M).
