Chandigarh, Sep 27 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today condemned the politics being exercised by the opposition leaders in the name of waters.
The Chief Minister stated this while addressing 'Kisan Khet Mazdoor Rally' at village Karora about 26 kms from Kaithal today.
On the issue of development, he said: ''We are gradually marching towards achieving our committed goal of making Haryana number one state of the country and we have succeeded to a great extent in this direction.'' He said the whole of the country was looking towards the historical decisions made by the State Government to implement a number of development schemes for the welfare of people.
On the scarcity of power in the state, the Chief Minister admitted that there was the problem of shortage of power even in the villages of the state which the present government got in legacy from the previous governments.
He said the state government was making sincere efforts to solve this problem by setting up a number of power generation plants in different parts of the state. He reiterated that during the next two-and-a half years Haryana would be able to generate additional 5000 MW of power through various power plants.
Mr Hooda assured the farmers that there would be not even a single field which would not get irrigation water as soon as we started generating additional 5000 MW power.
Referring to equitable distribution of water in the state, the Chief Minister said the State Government had started taking a number of steps for providing water through three more canals--BML Hansi Butana canal, Dadupur Nalvi Canal and the Mewat Canal.
