No place for criminals in Haryana: Hooda

Written by: Staff

Pataudi, May 14 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said 'goondaism' has no place in the state anyu longer and the criminals should clearly understand that they would not be allowed to find shelter here.

The Chief Minister, while addressing a public meeting here, after inaugurating a Rs 47.71 lakh bus terminal, said that as a result of the effective steps taken by the state Government, most of the criminals had fled from the state and the remaining few would also leave Haryana soon.

He said that improved law and order situation, adequate supply of water and power being vital for rapid development, the state Government gave thrust on these areas. A number of schemes had been implemented to make the state free of corruption and fear.

He said the due share of water, which the Southern Haryana should get as per the records on papers, had not been given to it.

The task of ensuring equitable distribution of water had been entrusted to Irrigation Minister Capt Ajay Singh, who himself hailed from Southern Haryana. A Rs 267 crore canal was being constructed to carry 2000 cusecs of water to give due share of water to southern parts of Haryana.

He said there was no logic in the manner in which the party of former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala was opposing the construction of this significant canal. There might be some reason for Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amrinder Singh or former chief minister Prakash Singh Badal to oppose the construction of this canal in view of ensuing elections in Punjab, but its criticism by INLD was not justified while clearly reflected the thinking of INLD.

He also announced to increase the capacity of 66 KV sub station here and said that safe drinking water would be provided to those 40-50 villages where the water was saline.
