Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar has announced that the state government is planning to set up industrial hubs in every district of the state to provide jobs to the youth. The chief minister, who was addressing a "vikas rally" in Bhiwani on Saturday, said the state government had formulated a new policy under which one large industrial unit and a large industrial project would be established in each of the 21 districts. He said the move would create 2.25 lakh jobs for the youth of the state.

Reacting to the allegations of the opposition parties, the chief minister said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state was working to fulfil its promises made to people. "We are making efforts to sensitise people about our work and soon we will enable the people with facility to get information with a click on their computer," he added.

Announces sops for Bhiwani

Reacting to the demands of the local leaders, the chief minister dedicated schemes related to health and education for the people of Bhiwani and announced that foundation stones of medical college and new campus of a university would soon be laid to meet the shortcomings related to health and education.The recruitment of teachers, doctors and other employees has been started in a transparent manner to overcome their shortage.

However, the chief minister did not fix a deadline, but announced that mining operation would soon be resumed. Khattar also dedicated two water treatment plants, total of 150-million litres per day capacity, to the people in the Bhiwani city. The projects, he announced for Bhiwani, included JBT institutions, a milk plant, upgradation of four schools in assembly constituency, sewerage treatment plant in Sector 21-26, 33kv substation, development of old ponds in Bhiwani on the pattern of lakes.

Says previous govts failed to solve people's problems

Slamming the previous governments, the chief minister said since the inception of the state in 1966, no government understood the problems of the people. "Despite having resources in abundance, the situation did not improve due to false intentions of the rulers," he added. He said his government's strong stand against corruption would win the confidence of the people and dream of corruption-free government would be fulfilled. He also appealed to the people that wherever they find shortcomings in the working of the government these might immediately be brought to the notice of the government with proof.

Visitors protest to see performance of female artiste

Police had to face a tough time to control the gathering, who had gathered for the rally, as a female folk artiste was hired to give a stage performance before the chief minister reached the venue. But high drama was witnessed when the performance was cancelled as Khattar arrived at the venue in time. A group of people started hooting when the local leaders started their speech.

The police had to use force to control the miscreants and were later assured that the artiste would perform after the rally was over. During the scuffle, a man Hariom, who claimed to be a member of BJP's state working committee, was also beaten up by the police.
