NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Haryana Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal said that the Barwala incident was unexpected, but the state government had achieved a big success after six days of struggle to save innocent people in that operation.
The Chief Minister was speaking in a felicitation function organized by Delhi BJP at New Delhi today. He said that some journalists had faced difficulties during coverage of Barwala incident. Some of them got injured and their cameras were damaged for which the guilty persons should be punished. He said that the State Government is committed towards the safety of journalists that such incident should not be repeated.
He said that in order to reduce the traffic congestion in Delhi, the government is considering giving contract of the construction work of Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) expressway to National Highway Authority of India so as to complete it at the earliest. He said that the company which had been awarded the work of KMP Expressway has been halting the project for long.
Referring to the issue of giving water to Delhi, the Chief Minister said that Haryana has no source of water, but whatever possible that would be contributed. He said that water is base of life without it life is not possible. He said that the issues of water pertaining to Delhi and Haryana are pending in the court. These issues would be resolved by sitting together and discussing them. Due to construction of a bridge by Rajasthan, the water coming from Rajasthan in Southern Haryana has stopped which has resulted in scarcity of water in southern Haryana.
He said that now zero FIR could be registered in any police stations, but action to that complaint would be taken by the concerned police station. He said that complaints could also be registered through internet. Once the complaint is registered the complainant would be given complaint number immediately.
The Chief Minister said that a provision is being made to start online registry in order to curb corruption and bring transparency. He said that buyer and seller of land would sign their agreement and deposit the prescribed fee in the Tehsil Office. They would get their registry at their door steps thus putting an end to the profit being made by middlemen in getting their registries done.
The Chief Minister said that government jobs will be given on the basis of written examinations and academic qualifications whereas the interview system would be scrapped. He said that the previous State Government had increased the retirement age from 58 years to 60 years to have political benefit which has been reduced by the BJP Government to 58 years so as to provide more employment opportunities to the youth. He said that monitoring committees would be constituted in the state. He said that CM Windows were being set up in all district headquarters of the state.
