RANIA (SIRSA) Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal Khattar today said that with a view to address the problem of stubble burning, the State Government has invited various companies to set up their industries in the field of power generation and paper production in the affected areas in the State. He announced that a paper mill based on stubble would be set up in Rania in Public Private Partnership Mode (PPP).
Mr Manohar Lal who was addressing a Vikas Rally in Rania today also announced various development works of Rs 150 crore for area.
The Chief Minister said that power companies who would opt to set up their units would be provided every assistance by the State Government such as land, exemption in tax and license fees etc. Apart from this, the government would also bear the loss of these companies in case the electricity generated by them is not fully consumed. The setting up these industries would not only help in generating electricity but also get rid off the affected areas from the problem of stubble burning and provide employment to youth, he added.
He said that he had a long association with the people of this area as he has been visiting Rania for the last 26 years. He said that 26 months earlier, when he took over the reign of the administration of the State, he had decided to visit all 90 assembly constituencies in the year 2015 and 2016 to meet the demand of the people by announcing various development projects and it is matter of pleasure that on December 25, 2016 he is going to complete his tour of all assembly constituencies in the State. He said that before him, none of the nine Chief Ministers visited all assembly segments in their first two years. We came into power with a sole aim to serve the entire 2.50 crore population of the State and also announced various development projects in those assembly constituencies also which are not being represented by BJP MLAs he added. He said that political will of the government and budget is required to serve the people adding that there is no dearth of funds with the State government for development works. He assured that the announcements made by him upto December 25, 2016 would be completed in the next year.
While lashing out the opposition without naming anyone, the Chief Minister said that we have given jobs to youth on merit basis and not through the back-door entry. Moreover, we never accepted slip (Parchi) or nor let this system flourishing in the State unlike the previous governments where a Chief Minister was behind the bars for giving jobs on basis of slips. ‘We will not commit any wrong act’, he added. He said that usually a government employee serves the state government for 30 to 35 years and we would select only those eligible youth for jobs who would serve the people and not become a burden on them.
He also blamed the previous government for not filling the vacant posts and said that we have started recruitment process for 50,000 posts in various departments. He said that only government jobs alone could not address the problem of unemployment as only 12,000 to 15,000 vacancies were advertised in a year. To ensure that every youth gets employment, the State Government is working on promoting skill development of youth. Various Skill Development Centres were being run in the State. Apart from this, Vishwakarma University for Skill Development has also been set up in Pawal in which various short-term courses would be introduced to make youth employable. He said that the State Government has also started a scheme for post graduate unemployed youth under which they were being given monthly honorarium of Rs 9000. The scope of this scheme will soon be expanded by covering graduate unemployed youth so as to make them self-reliant.
While taking a dig at the previous government for weakened the education system in the State, the Chief Minister described the ten year rule of the previous government as a black chapter in the field of education. He said that we have reintroduced the monthly exam system in schools and also taken various other initiatives to bring about improvement in education system.The Chief Minister said that the government is laying special emphasis on strengthening of infrastructure in the State. New roads were being constructed wherever required and damaged roads were being repaired. He said that a new policy of express way (Mahamarg) has been prepared. A new express way is being constructed from Delhi to Amritsar via Rohtak–Jind and other districts through which the travel between Delhi and Amritsar would be covered in just five hours. He said that as promised, the National Highway-10 from Hisar to Dabwali has been completed in one year time and as a result of this the travel time has reduced to just one hour. He said that a network of NH is being laid in the State which would not only ensure overall development of the State but also provide employment opportunities to the youth as more industries would come up. He also described Haryana as favourite destination for entrepreneurs to set up their units and added that various leading companies have offered to invest to the tune of Rs seven lakh crore in the State which would also provide employment opportunities to five lakh youth. He said that the Haryana which was earlier at 14th position in terms of ease of doing business now reached at number one position.
While hailing the step of Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi regarding demonetizing of high currency notes, the Chief Minister said that recently Venezuela followed India into National Demonetization but could not sustained with the decision.
