Haryana CM Khattar optimistic on decision of judicial system over corruption cases

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said he had full faith in the judicial system and that those facing corruption cases would be behind bars.

The chief minister was speaking at the Kapas Kisan Dhanyavad Rally' at Barwala in Hisar district.

"Bhupinder Singh Hooda (former Haryana chief minister) used to say, let the government probe anything during his tenure. Now that four investigations against him have been started, he has started saying that the government is working with a spirit of revenge," Khattar said.

"I have full faith in the judicial system and feel that in cases of corruption, the former chief minister would be behind the bars..," he said.

Khattar said the state government would teach a lesson to the corrupt.

Under the current dispensation, jobs have been given on the basis of merit and it would be its endeavor that at least one government job is given to every household in the state, he said.

"Such families that do not have any member in the job would be given five marks in the interview. Five marks would also be given to the widows," the chief minister said.

The chief minister reached the rally venue by driving a tractor. Finance Minister Captain Abhimanyu, BJP state president Subhash Barala, BJP district president Surender Punia also accompanied him on the tractor.

" My father was a small farmer with whom I worked in the fields during my childhood days. I used to get up at 4 am and take vegetables to markets on a bicycle," he said, asking Hooda to tell if he or his son ever worked in the fields.

On the increase in MSP of Kharif crops to 1.5 times the cost of production, Khattar said cotton growers would get Rs 5,150 per quintal as compared to their cost of Rs 3,433 per quintal.

Besides, bajra growers stand to gain the most from this decision, he said.

The decision on MSP of Kharif crops is the biggest step in the direction of achieving the target of doubling farmers' income by 2022, the chief minister said.

He said various schemes have been initiated by the present government for the welfare of farmers and they would not be left behind in progress.

Khattar said as many as 2 lakh new BPL ration cards would be made in Haryana so that maximum number of people could avail benefits of government schemes.

Work on this project will start next month.

He also announced projects worth Rs. 110 crore for Barwala.

Khattar said the BJP governments at the Centre and in the state were committed for the welfare of poor and backward people. These people should get their rights and dues, he said.

The chief minister said with the increase in the income of farmers, shopkeepers, businessmen, and industrialists would also stand to gain. This will lead to overall development of the state and the country.

Khattar said as many as 2,300 villages of six districts of the state are being provided round-the-clock electricity.

The remaining villages are being supplied power for and 15, 18 and 22 hours. By making special efforts, the government has achieved a reduction in power losses by 13 percent, he said.

On the water issue, he said regardless of water scarcity, sufficient water is being supplied by the government. The state has managed to supply water after a gap of 25 years to the 293 tail-end villages out of 300 in the districts of Bhiwani, Hisar, Dadri, Mahendergarh, and Mewat, the CM said.
