CPI Slam congress over hooda's remark on Khap

CPI today questioned Congress' silence over Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's opposition to same-gotra marriages saying it appears that the ruling party is supporting "outdated, pro-caste panchayat outfits". The argument that same-gotra marriages were not approved by the society was "not valid" in the 21st century, the party said in a statement here. "Hooda is trying to indulge in cheap vote bank politics. There cannot be two different types of laws in the country. Why Hooda does not condemn the so-called honour killings? Hooda is playing soft on those who are trying to take law into their hands," the CPI said.
The CPI's remarks came in the backdrop of Hooda supporting Khap Panchayats of Jat community which has come out against marriage within same-gotra. "It is surprising to understand why the Congress is silent on the views of Hooda who is the chief minister of their party? The silence amounts to support the outdated,pro-caste panchayat outfits in the country," it said. The CPI demanded that Hooda withdraw his comments.
