Chandigarh: Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Tuesday alleged that the Congress has insulted the martyrs-- Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev-- by comparing them with Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who had got the country divided.
Mr Vij, who was interacting with mediapersons here, said that Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the enemy of the country and also the weakness of P. Jawahar Lal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi. This was the reason for partition. Therefore, the photograph of Jinnah should be immediately removed if found displayed anywhere in the country. He also criticized Congress leader Karan Dalal for his remarks on the issue of display of photograph of Mr Jinnha saying that he has no knowledge of history and he should read it.
The Health Minister said that the state government not only belongs to the Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes, but also works for their uplift. He said that he was connected with the hearts of people and no party was able to break this connection through evil propaganda. While lashing out at former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Mr. Vij said that there was no need to be happy on getting bail because the case has just started.
Mr Vij said that Mr Hooda had insulted the sportspersons by not awarding them for their achievements and their outstanding prize money was given by the present state government.
Replying to a question regarding mining mafia, he said that the Chief Minister has completely put a check on mining mafia. (UNI)
