Lay foundation stone of the medical college or face protest: Congress
Jind: Congress demanded that the foundation stone of the proposed medical college in Jind be laid in three days, failing which they will launch an agitation against Manohar Lal Khattar-led state government.
Khattar had announced that a medical college will soon come up in Jind but the foundation stone of the project is yet to be laid, Congress leader Pramod Sehwag said.
"The work on the proposed Railway under-bridge is also yet to start, the CM is fooling the people of Jind," Sehwag said, adding that the Congress workers will show black flags to the chief minister when he visits the city on July 26.
"The four-lane state highway between Rohtak-Jind which started in Congress' rule was stalled by the BJP government , the law and order situation is deteriorating everyday. The whole city goes into darkness after sunset as no street lights are working," he claimed.
He asked INLD MLA from Jind Hari Chand Midha to join hands to take on the government.
"INLD MLAs are nowhere to be seen during protests but are always seen when the campaign for the elections are on," he joked.
"We are giving three days time to the state government, if they don't lay the foundation stone of the medical college, we won't think twice before coming out on the streets," he warned.
