Shah said Modi government had given `53,000 crore more to Haryana than what the previous UPA government had given when Hooda was ruling the state.
JIND: BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday lauded Haryana CM Manohar Lal for giving a “corruption-free” government to a state where “CMs have gone to jail on charges of corruption”.

Lal has been facing criticism from opposition parties for his handling of the law and order situation in the state.

Shah was addressing a public rally in the state’s Jind district where he kicked off BJP’s 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign, calling party workers and supporters to ensure victory on all the 10 seats from Haryana.

“Not a single allegation of corruption has come against Manohar Lal Khattar,” Shah said. “This has happened in Haryana after a long time. This is a state where CMs have gone to jail on charges of corruption,” Shah said in an apparent reference to Om Prakash Chautala, who has been convicted, and Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who is facing corruption charges.

Shah, who arrived at the venue riding pillion on a motorcycle, said BJP will win two of the three states — Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland — where voting is due to take place later this month. He said the twinwin will take the tally of states ruled by BJP to 21. Manohar Lal drove another motorcycle to the rally venue.

Shah also complimented Lal for demolishing the “transfer-posting industry” in Haryana and the big improvement in the child-sex ratio through the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “He runs a government which has no caste and favours no one,” Shah said.

Shah said Modi government had given `53,000 crore more to Haryana than what the previous UPA government had given when Hooda was ruling the state.
