Chandigarh, Feb 15 (IANS) On a day the Delhi High Court refused to give interim relief to Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) leaders Om Prakash Chautala and his son Ajay Chautala in a teachers' recruitment scam, the party launched its 'Pol Khol' (expose) campaign against Haryana's ruling Congress.
Om Parkash Chautala's other son and INLD leader Abhay Singh Chautala Friday called upon the people to uproot the Congress-led government from the state and the centre.
He was addressing a rally in Panchkula town, 15 km from here.
Chautala accused the Congress of "a conspiracy under which it misused the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) to downgrade the image of innocent INLD leaders by sending them behind the bars".
"The truth will prevail and soon, conspiracy of the Congress will be exposed," he said.
He said Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was more concerned about spreading misleading information about INLD leaders than focussing on the deteriorating law and order situation in Haryana and carrying out development work.
"We will prove that the Congress and CBI had planned a conspiracy to send INLD leaders to jail," Chautala said, while challenging the Congress leadership to come forward for an open debate on the conspiracy against INLD leaders.
"Worried over the increasing popularity of the INLD, the Congress is using cheap tactics to downgrade the image of the party," he told the gathering.
The INLD held rallies in other places of Haryana too.
