Chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday announced that strengthening work of 71 roads in Yamunanagar district would be completed by July 10.
Addressing a party workers' meeting at Yamunanagar, Hooda said these roads included 43 of the municipal corporation of Yamunanagar-Jagadhari, nine of the public works department and remaining of the Haryana State Agricultural Marketing Board.
He said 3,325 houses under the Rajiv Awaas Yojana (RAY), 1,176 under Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) were to be constructed in the district whereas 1,836 more beneficiaries had been identified under IAY. Hooda said he had directed all the deputy commissioners in the state to invite applications from the eligible beneficiaries so that they could be brought under the ambit of below poverty line (BPL) list.
While criticising the previous INLD-BJP government for neglecting Yamunanagar, Hooda said during their six-year tenure from the year 1999-2005, a sum of `449.87 crore was spent on the district whereas the present government had so far spent `2,691.56 crore on various development works.
Taking a dig at the BJP, Hooda said few of its leaders were making statements that they could bring down the Congress government in the state if they wish. He questioned them that what they were waiting for. Hooda said such leaders were misleading people and that he had the support of people of the state.
Speaking on the occasion HPCC president Ashok Tanwar said the forthcoming elections would be contested under the leadership of Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
He said those working actively for strengthening the organisation would be given priority in the reconstitution of party organisation at block and district level and would also be given appropriate participation in the government.
Tanwar also cautioned the party leaders not to air their grievances in the public and asked them to raise issues, if any, within the party.
