The Haryana government has decided to give 15-day paternity leave to all male government employees, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Sunday.

It was also decided to increase the strength of women’s police force from 11 to 20%. While interacting with employees recruited in the police, education and other departments in Rohtak, Khattar said due to court cases about 13,000 recruitments were held up in the education, power and other departments.

These cases will be pleaded appropriately by the state government to get justice to the youth of the state.

Earlier, the CM referred to the opposition ganging up together against the Prime Minister and said, “Since none is able to stand in front of him, they have got together on one platform which is not the right way to exhibit strength.”

Answering a question about the gathering of all opposition parties in Karnataka on one platform, he said all parties, including Congress, INLD, Aam Aadmi Party, Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav assembled on one platform, but this did not prove their togetherness.

“These parties can stand on one stage together but time will tell how and what they can do in their own states,” he added.
