New Delhi:Congress President Rahul Gandhi condemned the murder of a congress leader Vikash Chaudhary on Thursday in Faridabad, Haryana. "Murder of Vikash Chaudhary is shameful and tragic. The incident mirrors the law and order situation in the state of Haryana. May God give his family strength to endure the trauma," Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi tweeted from his official Twitter account.

Haryana Congress leader Vikash Chaudhary was shot at in Faridabad on Thursday and succumbed to his injuries. He was attacked while travelling in his car in the morning. Haryana Congress President, Ashok Tanwar,  also condemned the gruesome incident and claimed that there is no law and order in the region. "It is a 'jungle raj', there is no fear of law. The same kind of incident happened yesterday, where a woman who opposed molestation was stabbed. There should be an investigation," Tanwar stated.

Randeep Singh Surjewala, Congress spokesperson also condoled Chaudhary's killing. "The incident of Congress spokesperson and leader Vikas Chaudhury being shot in the broad daylight is extremely saddening. This act is condemnable and shameful. My heartfelt condolences to the family. May God give peace to his soul," Surjewala tweeted in Hindi. Under the BJP rule, Haryana has become a gundaraj and a stronghold of organised crime. There is no law and order in the state as goons and other chaotic elements are ruling the state. The Khattar government is solely responsible for creating such an atmosphere. An unbiased investigation should be conducted into the matter and the BJP must make efforts to provide speedy justice."
