Haryana BJP chief has no role in stalking, says Khattar

Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said BJP state chief Subhash Barala had “nothing to do with the incident” of his son stalking a senior IAS officer’s daughter here as the Opposition mounted pressure demanding his resignation.

“Barala has nothing to do with this incident. It is an individual incident, the accused will face action if found guilty. This is my official stand, this was my stand yesterday and today also… After this, on this issue, no question, no answer,”

Khattar told reporters in Hisar.
He also ruled out the resignation of Barala as the BJP state chief.

Khattar had on Saturday said that law would take its own course in the case.

The chief minister had earlier said, “The matter has come to my notice. The Chandigarh Police have registered a case… We have full faith in police and law. This issue is not of Subhash Barala, this pertains to an individual and whatever action will be deemed fit in this case, law will take its own course.”
