Chandigarh, February 21
The INLD today accused the Hooda Government of violating orders of the Punjab and Haryana High Court by proposing to develop a global city on the 1,383 acres of land it had taken back from Reliance in Gurgaon.

Addressing mediapersons here today, senior INLD leader Abhay Chautala and state INLD president Ashok Arora alleged that the Hooda Government went for change of land use (CLU) to develop the global city against the January 23, 2014, judgement of the High Court.

“The court had banned CLU of the land as the sub-regional plan of the area had not been approved by the NCR Planning Board (NCRPB),” Chautala alleged.

Alleging that the decision was taken at the instance of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to “provide direct benefit to Reliance”, which was developing an integrated industrial township on the left-over land of the failed SEZ project, Chautala demanded the return of land to the farmers instead of setting up the global city.

Chautala also raised accusing finger at the proposed appointment of 23 persons in the Vidhan Sabha. He also alleged large-scale irregularities in the allotment of 48 plots to Haryana policemen killed in action in cities like Panchkula Hisar, Faridabad, Kurukshetra, Bahadurgarh, Rewari, Rohtak, Jajjhar, Sirsa and Dharuhera.

Government denies charges

Several Haryana ministers denied Chautala’s allegations. In a joint statement, the ministers clarified that the land for which the land use was designated as SEZ was re-planned vide notification dated September 4, 2012, by means of which the Gurgaon-Manesar-Urban Complex Plan-2031 was notified.

“The High Court has only ordered not to grant fresh licences, CLU and further acquisition till a sub-regional plan of Haryana is approved.The Haryana Government has submitted its sub-regional plan after corrections to the NCRPB, which has been approved at the meeting of Planning Committee held on January 20, 2014. The meeting of the NCRPB will be held for approval of this plan shortly,” the statement claimed.
