New Delhi [India], Dec. 17 (ANI): Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday alleged that it is the BJP-led NDA government's modus operandi to hand over the inquiry into the alleged re-allotment of a plot to Associated Journals Limited (AJL) in Panchkula in 2005 to the Central Bureau of Investigation. Hooda told ANI that the government is indulging in political vendetta and witch hunting by coming after him in the case. "This is their modus operandi. In other cases also they have adopted the same method because once you register a case and then refer to CBI, the CBI does not go for preliminary enquiry. Nothing is wrong done during my tenure. This is just political vendetta and witch hunting. In other cases also they have adopted the same method," Hooda told ANI. The BJP government in Haryana has handed over the enquiry into the alleged re-allotment of a plot to AJL in Panchkula in 2005 to the CBI. "We handed over the case to CBI a few days back. The agency will soon start its inquiry," Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar told the media yesterday. (ANI)
