President Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee and Rajya Sabha MP Kumari Selja has slammed the BJP-JJP alliance government of the state for the new excise policy and the decision to take away the land of Dhauli given to the Brahmin families. She said that those who used to talk of closing liquor vends in the state, have made arrangements for opening liquor vends from house-to-house today.

15 percent quota in liquor vend contracts of Dalits exposes the anti-Dalit face of this government. She said that the Dhauli (donation) land given by the Congress government to the Brahmin families, is being taken away by the present government, which is highly condemnable.

Kumari Selja said that be it the government of the state or the central government, Dalits were repeatedly tortured in this government. Sometimes there was a conspiracy to end their reservation, sometimes the law against the oppression of Dalits is not properly advocated, which was rejected in the Supreme Court. The 500-year-old Ravidas Temple wad demolished in this government. At the same time, abolishing the 15 percent quota in liquor contracts of Dalits, once again exposes the anti-Dalit face of this government.

In a statement issued here today, Kumari Selja said that our state is already getting entangled in the swamp of drugs. On the other hand, the decision of the government giving relaxation on sale of liquor in shopping malls, reduction in the prices of beer, allowing the bar to open till 1 a.m. in midnight and giving permission to keep liquor boxes in house, shows that the government promotes intoxication in the state. The real objective of the government is to make reach of liquor easy to maximum number of people so that people would not even bother to go to the liquor vends for it. It shows how the government is promoting drugs in the state, she added.

She said that the parties involved in this government used to talk about liquor ban in the elections, but today the real face of these parties has come before the people of the state. This decision of the government will have serious consequences, and the youth of the state who are already getting caught in the clutches of drugs will be increasingly trapped in the morass. Now liquor will be supplied from house to house and it will also have a direct impact on the law and order of the state.

Kumari Selja said that be it the government of the state or the central government, Dalits were repeatedly tortured in this government. Sometimes there was a conspiracy to end their reservation, sometimes the law against the oppression of Dalits is not properly advocated, which was rejected in the Supreme Court. The 500-year-old Ravidas Temple wad demolished in this government. At the same time, abolishing the 15 percent quota in liquor contracts of Dalits, once again exposes the anti-Dalit face of this government.

Cornering the government for taking away the ownership rights of Dhauli (donation) land given to some other castes including the Brahmin by the Congress government in the year 2011, Kumari Selja said that the anti-Brahmin face of this government was once again exposed. The anti-Brahmin mentality of this government and Chief Minister Manohar Lal has been exposed many times.

The anti-Brahmin question in the Haryana Staff Selection Commission, and the threat given by Chief Minister Manohar Lal to behead the head of a Brahmin leader, tells how this government maintains an anti-Brahmin mentality.

She said that in the year 2011, when the Congress was in power in the state, the Congress made law and people of the Brahmin community were given the right to own the land of Dhauli (donation). Under this, 37,836 Dhauledars became the owners of 14,187 acres of land. Now due to its anti-Brahmin mentality, this government has decided to take away the ownership of the land of these people, which is highly condemnable.

She said that the Congress party was standing with the people of the state against these anti-people decisions and these decisions will be strongly opposed by the Congress party.
