Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday said that the state had suffered an immense loss due to the wrong policies of the previous government.
Addressing a meeting of party workers here, he said, "Haryana has suffered a loss of about Rs 28,000 crore due to the wrong policies of previous government on the power utilities in the state," the CM said.
Denouncing the previous government's recruitment policy, the CM said that backdoor entry was given to 90,000 employees by circumventing the rules. "Now recruitment would be done only on merit basis," Khattar said.
'PAY TAXES FOR BETTER SERVICES'
He also urged people to pay taxes for better services. "You can avail the best services only when you pay regular taxes for them," the CM said.
"People have developed a belief that their tax money is not used on welfare schemes. We have to work hard to rekindle that faith among people so that they can start reposing their trust in our government," Khattar said.
The CM also informed that the government is preparing a state record database to keep record of every individual in the state.
"The state record database would allow the government to know the condition of every person in the state and it will then implement schemes accordingly," he added.
The government would also form monitoring committees at the Vidhan Sabha level In this regard, he said.
"These committees would not only monitor the developmental works but also play a significant role in ensuring that the benefit of schemes reaches the beneficiaries," Khattar said.
The CM said the members of these committees have to understand the expectations and grievances of the people and provide them the information of welfare works undertaken by the government.
The committee members would inform people about various schemes through emails and SMSes.
Asking party workers to act as a link between the government and people, Khattar said, "It is the duty of the party workers to ensure that benefits of every scheme launched by the government reach the beneficiaries. They should also provide feedback to the government about the people who have been benefited and how they have been benefited."
Among others who attended the meeting included finance minister Captain Abhimanyu, BJP state president Subhash Barala and Hisar MLA Kamal Gupta.
