Panchkula (Haryana):  Clarifying his stand on khap panchayats in Haryana,  Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav has said, khap panchayats “not always did bad things for which they made news”.

Supporting their role in society, he maintained that such panchayats help in bringing together people and resolving their issues. However, he said that khaps “indulging in activities not permitted under law was intolerable”.

Yadav said corruption in Haryana was “much worse than Delhi”.

Lashing out at the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government, Yadav said “AAP’s doors will always remain open” for IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who had highlighted illegalities in land deals involving Robert Vadra, who is the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

”The Haryana government is facing corruption allegation in land deals, change of land use (CLU) and recruitments,” Yadav said. “If corruption was an issue in Delhi, then it is hundred times a bigger issue in Haryana.”

The AAP leader said each and every department and ministry in the state was plagued with corruption.
