Chandigarh, Jan 2 (UNI) The Haryana government has constituted a six-member committee to examine the possibility of providing employment to about 1000 police personnel who were among 1600 personnel whose services were terminated due to a court decision.
Talking to reporters here, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said the committee, to be headed by Agriculture Minister H S Chatha, would examine the issue of their employment from the legal point of view.
He said a delegation of these police personnel had met him and urged that they be given employment.
The other members of the committee would be secretaries of Departments of Power, Cooperation, Transport and Animal Husbandry. A representative of the Chief Secretary would be the member secretary of the committee, which would submit its report within two months.
When his attention was drawn towards the statement made by INLD leader Sampat Singh that pipes having content of asbestos were being used to supply potable water to the people by the Department of Water Supply and Sanitation, Mr Hooda clarified that most of the states had been using the same pipes.
He said the state government did not have any report stating that these pipes were hazardous for health. Had it been so, these would have been banned, he added.
