Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday made a slew of announcements including recruitment of 13,000 police personnel, as he took on previous Congress government saying it will take time to get the "derailed" system on track.
A recruitment drive would also be launched by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) for regular appointments in different departments of the state, Khattar said addressing Pragati Rally at Samalkha in district Panipat today.
He said that big industries had been invited to set up units in the state to generate more employment opportunities for the youth and development of the state.
Khattar said that the BJP government in Haryana has recently completed its six month tenure.
"While taking the reign of the administration of the state we have made some promises to the people that include providing a transparent and graft free administration. It is matter of pride that we have been successful in keeping a check on corruption," he said.
Taking a dig at previous Congress regime, he said that "it will take time to get the system on track which has been derailed during the previous regime."
He said that e-registration system has been implemented in all Tehsils of the state under which one could get the registry of property at his doorstep in just seven days on payment of prescribed fees.
"This system would not only ensure transparency in the Tehsil works but also discourage the role of middlemen which is harbinger of corruption. To save time and resources of people, CM Window has been set up at each district headquarter where people could give their complaints.
"Apart from this, they could also lodge complaints on CM web Portal. With the start of these services, now the people need not come to Chandigarh to submit their complaints," he added.
The chief minister also said that with a view to ensure that the people need not visit government offices frequently to get their work done, the State Government has launched 19 e-services on May 2.
"These services are available in each district."These services are available in each district. The government has also identified 164 more services which would soon be linked with e-services. Apart from the district level, these services would be extended to Sub Divisional Level, Block Level and Village Level so as to expend the scope of these services," Khattar said.
He also said that Gram Sachivalyas would be set up in each village which would be equipped with computer and other facilities. With this, the villagers would be able to get their work done under one roof, he said.
Referring to the recent untimely rain and hailstorm in different parts of the state, the Chief Minister said that 'special girdawari' (survey to assess the damage of crops) was done in a record time and loss was assessed on 13 lakh acres of land for which compensation amounting to Rs 1,092 crore was being distributed by the government.
"The work to distribute cheques of compensation would be completed by May 15," he further added.
He said that apart from the compensation amount the state government has also announced a number of relief measures for the farmers, which included waiving off electricity bill of one year as per damage of crops, rescheduling of crop loans and next crop loan to farmers on zero per cent interest.
Khattar announced a slew of sops for the people of Samalkha Assembly constituency, which included Rs 10 crore for the construction of bypass on Nestle-Kiwana road, another Rs 10 crore for the development of villages from Haryana Rural Development Fund (HRDF), Rs 6 crore for setting up of Power Sub Station and Rs 5 crore for Municipal Committee Samalkha for various development works.
He also announced that first Gram Sachivalya in Panipat district would be constructed in Biholi village at a cost of Rs one crore.
On the demand of MLA Samalkha Ravinder Machhroli, he said that he would write to National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to ensure that the buses coming from Chandigarh side to Delhi make an entry into Bus Stand Samalkha.
