Hisar, Nov 11 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today asked the Congress workers to launch a movement to disseminate information regarding developmental plans of the State Government as a befitting reply to the opposition that was misleading people.
The information would also enable the people to attain benefits of the schemes, he said.
The Chief Minister, who was addressing the party workers in Hisar, described workers as the backbone of any political party and said they were a bridge between the Government and the masses.
Mr Hooda, while praising the efforts of the workers in helping the Congress form Government in the state, said the party had always upheld the dignity of its workers.
Mr Hooda said in the last 32 months, the present state government had not only fulfilled promises made in its election manifesto, but also implemented the schemes which were not mentioned in the election manifesto.
For example, he said, his Government had waived-off arrears of electricity bills amounting to Rs 1600 crore, decided to allot residential plots of 100 square yards each to the poor, waived-off house tax and chullah tax and set up new power generation plants. A number of schemes had been implemented by his government for all sections of the society, he added.
Speaking on the occasion, Working President of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee Kuldip Sharma lashed out at the opposition leaders for waging a ''misinformation campaign'' against a ''competent government''.
President of District Congress Unit (Rural) Chhatarpal Singh, who is also an MLA, presented a turban to the Chief Minister as a mark of respect.
