हरियाणा में कांग्रेस नेता विकास चौधरी की दिनदहाड़े हत्या कर देना प्रदेश की कानून व्यवस्था पर सवालिया निशान खड़ा करता है। पूरे प्रदेश के कानून व्यवस्था ध्वस्त हो चुकी है। मेरी पूरी संवेदना पीड़ित परिवार के साथ है। सरकार जल्द से जल्द अपराधियों को पकड़े। pic.twitter.com/Ap6hMwwKqB

फरीदाबाद में कांग्रेस प्रवक्ता और नेता विकास चौधरी की हत्या एक निन्दनीय, शर्मनाक और दुखद घटना है। यह हरियाणा मे बिगड़ती कानून व्यवस्था का आईना है। प्रभु श्री चौधरी की आत्मा को शांति और परिवार को ये आघात सहने की शक्ति दे।
