Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda cited them as reasons. Most others would, no doubt, call them excuses. He blamed every deficiency in Gurgaon on either the “previous government” or nature. Or both.
But he admitted much was wrong with Gurgaon, in an interview to Hindustan Times.
Hooda agreed the roads were terrible, the power situation was extremely bad, there was no garbage disposal system worth the name and that there was complete lawlessness.
Hindustan Times had highlighted each of these problems afflicting Gurgaon — turning it into a nightmare city that’s scaring away newcomers — in a series that ran in five parts to unprecedented response from readers.
Hooda blamed the “previous government” for everything — from creaky infrastructure to crumbling roads to stinking garbage lying about upscale residential condominiums.
“Earlier governments did not plan properly and issued indiscriminate commercial licenses such as (for) malls all over.”
But, the chief minister added, things were beginning to happen. “I have given the Gurgaon administration 6 months to complete all road projects.”
