Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that his government has been moving cautiously so that that it does not repeat the mistakes which the previous Congress government had committed.

Speaking at a state-level function of the Bharat Vikas Parishad (BVP) here today, he described the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda regime as a “slow-moving government".

He said that as per wishes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who believed in ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’, his government would ensure equitable development of the state.

Khattar said that he wanted transparency in the functioning of his government and the policies and welfare schemes of government should be implemented in such a way that no one could raise an accusing finger against his government.

He said public has seen the "biased functioning" of the previous regime which resulted in a negative mandate against it in last year's assembly elections.

"We are committed to providing a corruption-free administration to the people," he said and added that soon he would gain the confidence of the people of the state by his hard work and dedication

“Political power should be used as a tool to serve the society, but service should never become a medium to attain political power,” he added.

Lauding the role played by Bharat Vikas Parishad (BVP) in serving the masses, Khattar hailed the organisation for opening 46 branches in the state and exhorted them to extend its activities in every nook and corner of the state so that those deprived of their services could avail them in future . He also announced to grant a plot to BVP and `5 lakh for construction of a building in Sector 19 here. He also announced a grant of `2 lakh for Banwasi Kalyan Ashram.
