Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Thursday that the State government was only following due process against his predecessor Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

“After probing a complaint against any person involved in corruption, it is investigated by an agency and the same is applicable in the case of the former Chief Minister,” he said.

“Mr. Hooda has himself said in the Vidhan Sabha that he is not afraid of any investigation. Why is he terming the investigation as political vendetta now?” said the Chief Minister while addressing a rally at Naraingarh in Ambala. “No unjustifiable act would be allowed to happen. If one is not guilty then there is no need to fear,” he said.

Without naming M.P. Raj Kumar Saini, who recently floated his own party, the Chief Minister said that he switches parties every two and a half years.
