Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar claimed that the corruption which was rampant under the previous corrupt governments during last 48 years, was under control and it might take time to wipe it out from the state. He said all the main schemes were being linked with Aadhar Card, as a result more than two lakh bogus old age pensioners were found during the survey conducted by his government. Previous Congress government was government of scandals and scams and the same leaders were instrumental to instigate riots and rapes. Mr Khattar said an increase of 28 per cent in the state budget was incorporated after taking anti-corruption measures. He claimed that 25 per cent more development works were executed in comparison to the previous governments. He said the old age beneficiaries would get Rs 2000 after three years and presently they were getting Rs 1600 per month. The BJP had promised to provide Rs 2000 pension to the old aged which would be fulfilled in phased manned in the coming three years.


The Chief Minister was addressing a rally at Barara organised by local MLA Santosh Chauhan Sarwan today. She presented a memorandum of demands which mostly included development works pending since for the last period of decades. Mr Khattar accepted all the demands made in the memorandum. The works when completed would cost more than Rs 170 crore. The important works included construction of Markanda bridge over Amala-Dehrdun NH known as khuni pul (death trap) where accidents take place frequently claiming lives of innocent people. Besides, these demands, Mr Khattar said his government had paid crop compensation of Rs 2300 crore during two years whereas Rs 1200 crore was distributed by the previous government during last 48 years. He claimed that employment was provided to 1.40 lakh unemployed during last two years and more jobs would be given to 2-3 lakh. He said his government would provide power supply for 18-21 hours to the consumers in the rural areas provided they shun form power theft leading to line losses.
