The exhibition had already been set up in Karnal, Rohtak, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Mewat, Palwal, Jind, Narnaul, Jhajjar, Bhiwani and Rewari districts, said deputy commissioner Nikhil Gajraj. The exhibition would soon be set up in all district headquarters, he added.

Gajraj said the state government had initiated a number of welfare schemes such as allotment of residential plots of 100 square metre to families below the poverty line,  Priyadarshini Housing Scheme, National Horticulture Mission, crop diversification, promotion of alternative sources of non-conventional energy, setting up district-level clubs for farmers, stamp duty exemption schemes for credit cards for farmers.

He added that people should be made aware of these schemes, so that they could benefit from them.

Centre cannot undo Haryana committee: Hooda

For long locked in intractable legal disputes over sharing of river waters and territorial claims, Punjab and Haryana are now sparring on politico-religious turf. And, the slugfest is only getting vicious and complicated by the day, raising the fears of religious frenzy that consumed Punjab in the dark 1980s. Vehemently opposed to Haryana’s move to set up a separate gurdwara panel, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal believes that the Amritsar-based SGPC’s supremacy must be maintained at all costs. He is even ready to step down as CM, if required, to scuttle the Congress’ ‘poll-oriented’ step. On the other hand, Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda vociferously defends the passing of a law by the state assembly to form a separate gurdwara management committee. He sees no impropriety at all.
