Congress show of solidarity at AJL event in Mohali today
Rahul to share stage with Hooda, Vora, who got CBI court summons after ED attached land allotted to AJL in P’kula
PUNJAB CM CAPT AMARINDER SINGH WILL ALSO BE PRESENT ALONG WITH HIS CABINET COLLEAGUES AT THE EVENT

CHANDIGARH: Days after a special CBI court served summons to former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and AICC treasurer Motilal Vora and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached the land allotted to the Associated Journals Limited (AJL) in Panchkula, the top Congress leadership will be in attendance to celebrate the relaunch of AJL’s Hindi newspaper ‘Navjivan’ at Mohali on Monday.

The venue for Monday’s relaunch of Associated Journals Limited’s Hindi newspaper ‘Navjivan’ at Mohali .
The event is being seen as a show of solidarity as Hooda is likely to share stage with All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi and former prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh, who is the guest of honour.

The AJL, which will launch a commemorative edition of ‘Navjivan’ to mark Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, said they are introducing the group publications to their Northern India readers.

The AJL is the publisher of National Herald, an English daily which was discontinued in 2008 due to “financial constraints” and relaunched in July last year. Rahul and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi are facing trial in a Delhi court in a case filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swami, who had questioned acquisition of AJL by Young Indian.

The ED has attached a plot of land in Panchkula allotted to AJL by the Hooda-led Congress government in Haryana in 2005.

The central agency attached the land under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, following a CBI chargesheet against Hooda and others on the charges of “fraudulent allotment”.

The ED has alleged that the plot was first allotted to AJL in 1982 to start ‘Navjivan’ newspaper. But it was cancelled in 1992 due to “violation of terms and references”. It said Hooda “misused” his official position by flouting the norms to allot the plot in 2005, on the rates prescribed in 1982. He had also given three extensions to AJL to complete the construction.

While Hooda was then the chairman of Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda), Vohra was chairman of AJL.

The court recently asked the two leaders to appear before it on January 3 following the chargesheet submitted by CBI in the case on December 1.

Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh will also be present along with state ministers and party leaders at Monday’s event.
