‘Congress, INLD supporting Jat stir’

Chandigarh, Feb 3: Harya Fince Minister Abhimanyu on Friday accused the opposition Congress and Indian tiol Lok Dal (INLD) of supporting the resumed protests by the Jats in support of their demands in the state. “Earlier it was the Congress; now, the INLD is extending support, which clearly indicates the agitation is politically motivated and has nothing to do with the common man,” Abhimanyu said in a statement here. “Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his (Congress) party, who had plunged the state in violence under the guise of agitation, are supporting the ongoing agitation at some places,” the minister said. Abhimanyu said Jat leader Yashpal Malik too was misguiding the people of Harya.  (IANS)
