Chief Minister thanks Prime Minister for appreciating Haryana for its sporting talent

Chandigarh, May 22 – Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal expressed his gratitude to the Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi, for reducing the prices of petroleum products. A subsidy of Rs 9.5 in petrol prices, Rs 7 in diesel and Rs 200 per cylinder to the beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme was announced. This will reduce the cost of cooking and will give relief to the common man. The Chief Minister said this while responding to queries by media persons in Delhi on Sunday.

Replying to a question, the Chief Minister said that Haryana stands first in sports. Today, the Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi, while interacting with a woman player, Unnati, has appreciated Haryana. The Haryana government is constantly encouraging the players. Continuous work is being done by the state government to make Haryana progress in sports. Be it giving prize money to the players or giving them jobs, they are constantly being encouraged. Haryana has also received the privilege to host Khelo India Youth Games this year. Sh Manohar Lal thanked the Prime Minister for this also.

Birth Anniversaries of great personalities to be celebrated

Sh. Manohar Lal said that the Birth Anniversary of Maharishi Kashyap will be celebrated in Karnal. For this a state level programme is being organized. We have announced that the thoughts of great men should reach the society, they should be propagated and for this the state government will celebrate their birth anniversaries. In this episode, a programme is being organized on Maharishi Kashyap Jayanti in Karnal. In the next month, the Birth Anniversary of Bhagat Kabir will be celebrated in Rohtak. In the past also, Prakash Parv of Dr. Ambedkar, Shri Ravidas and Sikh Gurus have been celebrated. In future also the Birth Anniversary of other great men will be celebrated in the same way.

Haryana government is moving ahead on stand up policy, not sit down

Responding to another question, the Chief Minister said that the governments should work for the public interest. Works of public interest are being done with the available resources with the State Government. In order to provide employment to those who have low income in the society, education and skilling is being imparted to them so that they move towards self-employment. We do not believe in sit down policy, but believe in the stand up policy of Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi. Today we are working on a plan to make people stand on their feet by providing employment.

Mandis are open, farmers can still sell their crops

Responding to a question, Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that mandis are open across the state, but it is being seen that wheat is not coming to the market. The government has announced the reopening of the mandis. The farmers can still come to sell wheat.

Other states of the country following many schemes of Haryana: Sh. Manohar Lal

People are getting transparent and clean administration, the scope of corruption is negligible

People are taking advantage of the schemes of Haryana government sitting at home: Sh. Manohar Lal

Chandigarh, May 22- Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that today Haryana is ahead of all other states which has been possible only through technology. We have created a system through technology, due to which it is easy to get the benefits of government schemes. He said that we had announced in the election manifesto that we will give transparent, clean administration and corruption free governance. We worked on it continuously after coming to power. We have run so many programmes in the tenure of seven and a half years that now the scope of corruption is negligible. Information Technology (IT) plays an important role in this.

Sh. Manohar Lal was speaking at a media event organized in Delhi.

The Chief Minister said that the government has made many such schemes which are being followed across the country. He said that the Lal Dora scheme of our government has been implemented in the whole country in the name of Svamitva Yojana. There was no proof of residential area property inside Lal Dora. By ending this, we gave people the ownership of the land. The Chief Minister said that the Central Government is also studying the Parivar Pehchan Patra scheme. It is also being planned to be implemented in other states. The Chief Minister informed that 69 lakh families have been registered through the Parivar Pehchan Patra scheme. We have information for every family and member, making it easy for people to make plans. We have added above 300 schemes through Parivar Pehchan Patra. People are getting the benefits of Haryana government schemes sitting at home.

He said that Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana has been made, through which families with an income of less than Rs. 1 lakh were selected and the initiative has been taken to bring their income up to Rs.1.80 lakh. Through the Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana, Rojgar Melas were organized for the people, loans were given, subsidies were given and training was imparted. The Chief Minister said that so far 40,000 people have got employment under this scheme. There are still 7 lakh families in the state whose annual income is below Rs. 1 lakh. The government is working continuously for the upliftment of all of them.

The Chief Minister said that Haryana has set an example for other states in agriculture and industry as well as in sports and education. We have provided equal opportunities to the players. The prize money that the players get in Haryana for winning medals is also more than other states. A reward of Rs. 6 crore is given by the Haryana government for winning the gold medal in the Olympics. There is no other state in the country, where so much prize money is awarded. He said that players are also being given reservation in jobs. 10 percent jobs have been reserved for players in Group D. He said that the government is working continuously to raise the standard of education. This is the age of IT, so Tablets have been distributed to children for online education. The Chief Minister informed that the government has given tablets to 5 lakh students of Classes X to XII at a cost of about Rs. 650 crore.

The Chief Minister further said that in politics, people create vote banks of castes for vested interests, but on the contrary, we did the same work for all the people of the society.

The Chief Minister said that in the year 2014, when we contested elections, we gave the slogan 'Haryana Ek Haryanvi Ek'. We did not discriminate against people of any class or region. Since the year 2015, we have continuously got development works done according to the demands of the people. The Chief Minister said that the government is walking hand in hand with everyone in terms of development.
