Taking a dig at the previous Congress government in Haryana, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that in the very first month of the BJP government, many people approached him with different kinds of offers. He said these people wanted him to follow the old ‘give-and-take’ system.

“But I showed them the door, saying our sole aim is to end corruption and give good governance to the people of the state,” he told a gathering at Sonepat on Sunday.

Khattar said his government was committed to breaking the politician-officer-employee nexus and pursue the path of public interest by connecting the whole system with e-governance. “The aim is to win the trust of people by giving them equal rights. We have to take the state forward in education, health and social sector. We have promised people jobs on merit basis and we are moving fast in this direction,” he said.
