Chandigarh: Calling upon BJP legislators to rise above the considerations of caste, creed and party ideologies, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said that serving people of the state should be of utmost importance.
“I am not a leader of any caste, and to serve the people and the state is uppermost in my mind,” Khattar said while speaking at the two-day training programme of newly elected members of Haryana Legislative Assembly at Surajkund in Faridabad.
Khattar asked them to take a pledge to serve people of the state and urged them to mix up with those belonging to different castes and party ideologies.
The BJP government aims to ensure all-round development of the state and answer the expectations of the people who have reposed unprecedented faith in the party, said an official release quoting Khattar.
The Chief Minister urged the MLAs to make maximum use of information technology.
The government has fixed the target of bringing online all tehsils by January 31, he said.
Calling corruption a “cancer”, he said that joint efforts should be made to completely root it out. Ensuring transparent governance is government's responsibility, he said.
As many as 22,000 grievances have been received so far which are being redressed, he added.
Khattar said the government aims to ensure that everyone benefits from the schemes in the spirit of Antyodaya. All Deputy Commissioners and Superintendents of Police have been directed to make themselves available in offices between 11 AM and 12 noon to redress public grievances.
Among those who were present included Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma, Finance Minister, Capt. Abhimanyu, Agriculture Minister O P Dhankar, said the release.
