CHANDI­GARH:: Haryana fi­nance min­is­ter Capt Ab­hi­manyu on Mon­day said the en­tire cab­i­net is wor­ried over the re­cent in­ci­dents of vi­o­lence against women in the state, while as­sur­ing peo­ple that such mis­deeds would not be tol­er­ated and cul­prits would be se­verely pun­ished.

Ad­dress­ing the me­dia af­ter a cab­i­net meet­ing, he said the gov­ern­ment had taken a se­ri­ous note of such in­ci­dents which had left a neg­a­tive im­pact on the so­ci­ety as well as the state.

“The op­po­si­tion par­ties, in­stead of grind­ing their own axe, should shoul­der their re­spon­si­bil­ity to the so­ci­ety and help the ad­min­is­tra­tion in tak­ing on the ne­far­i­ous el­e­ments so that such mis­deeds could be pre­vented,” he said.

Ad­dress­ing the se­nior dis­trict func­tionar­ies of the po­lice depart­ment through a video-con­fer­ence, Sandhu di­rected that no miss­ing re­port should be taken ca­su­ally and that prompt ac­tion should be ini­ti­ated.
