Former Union Minister and Congress dissident leader Vinod Sharma criticised the Haryana government headed by Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda for discrimination with northern Haryana in the field of development.

He said although Haryana state was being claimed to be number one development in the country yet northern region was totally neglected during the last over nine years of the Congress rule.

Mr Sharma was speaking at the series of meetings held on the occasion of opening of offices of the Lok Sewa Panchayat (LSP) at Naraiangarh and Matheri in Ambala district. Sharma has launched his organisation under the banner of LSP to mobilise the people against the Congress government.

The dissident Congress leader said during the last 40 years of Haryana state, this region continued to be neglected and had been dragged into a backward area where the people did not enjoy the facilities being provided to the people in southern Haryana including the home district Rohtak of the Chief Minister. He assailed the policies of the state government which were anti-people and anti-region.

Mr Sharma, who was once right hand person of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, has now parted company with him and has formed his own party and has opened its offices in every part of the state. He said main object of his organisation was to give justice to the people.
