Blaming the state government for rising rate of unemployment and crime, Congress Working Committee (CWC) member and former MP Deepender Hooda said the government was playing into the hands of a few capitalists and all policies were being framed in order to benefit them instead of resolving the issues of the common man.

“Consequently, employment opportunities are persistently shrinking, while law and order has also reached its worst phase,” he said at a party workers’ meeting organised by Jhajjar MLA Geeta Bhukkal here today under its ongoing thanksgiving programme in the state.

He said people wanted to bring the Congress back to power in the recently held Assembly polls but mismatch alliance of the BJP-JJP managed to form the government against people’s wish. The Congress would play a constructive role of a strong Opposition and would resist anti-people policies of the government in a prominent manner, he said.

“The data of Crime Record Bureau is sufficient enough to expose the deteriorating law and order situation in Haryana. Heinous crime against women is on the rise, while the state government is mum instead of taking stringent steps to check the crime. Such a horrible incident recently came to light in Palwal wherein criminals gangraped a minor girl twice and the police are trying to hush-up the crime while the criminals are roaming free,” he said.

Bhukkal said it was unfortunate that on the one hand the government was coming up with slogans of “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, but on the other, rape and other crime against women had become order of the day.
