Sugar mills case: Independent MLA withdraws support from Haryana government

Rohtak: Independent MLA from Haryana’s Meham Balraj Kundu on Friday has withdrawn support given to Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s government.

Kundu had alleged that the state-run cooperative sugar mills in Haryana have suffered a loss of Rs 3,300 crore due to siphoning off of molasses and under-weighing of procured sugarcane from last four years.

“I had extended my support to an honest government and Chief Minister ML Khattar. Now, I have realized that their display of honesty is a farce. I will hand over a letter to the Assembly Speaker to withdraw my support tomorrow,” said Kundu while speaking to reporters on Thursday.

He had reportedly written a letter to Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in this regard earlier this month. Responding to Kundu’s statement regarding the withdrawal of the support, Khattar has assured a probe if there is any truth in the allegations leveled by the MLA.

Recently, BJP’s Manish Grover has sent a legal notice to Balraj Kundu, for allegedly maligning his image by taking his name in a “multi-crore scam” of sugar mills and other tendering process.
