Ambala, July 19
The former MLA of Ambala Cantt, Anil Vij, today sought information about the status of the memorandum regarding the Agrofed scam, which was forwarded to the Haryana Governor.
Mr Anil Vij sought information under the Right to Information Act. He said he had sent a letter to the State Public Information Officer seeking the status of the memorandum, which was submitted to the Deputy Commissioner, Ambala, for further forwarding to the Governor on June 28.
He said the Agrofed scam needed to be investigated by the CBI. He said there were indications of the involvement of Congress leaders in the Agrofed scam.
He claimed that Ambala Cantt MLA Devender Bansal was known to the fake Agrofed chairman, Mr Sandhu. He said despite this fact, the Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda, had visited the residence of Mr Devender Bansal on July 15. This raised doubts that a fair and transparent probe into the Agrofed scam was not possible.
