Haryana ‘Parivar Pehchan Patra’ scheme impresses British High Commissioner

Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that unlike previous governments that used to divide Haryana in the name of regional and district-wise development, the present state government in its last six years tenure while believing in the Mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ has ensured equitable development of all the 90 Assembly Constituencies.

The Chief Minister said this while interacting with the media persons after inaugurating and laying the foundation stones of various development projects worth Rs. 1411 crore including Education, Health, Medical College,  Strengthening Road Connectivity,  Water, Irrigation Power etc to the people of the State during a state-level programme held through video conferencing from Chandigarh.

While lauding the officers concerned including engineers, contractors and workers engaged in designing and construction of these projects, Chief Minister said that keeping in view the recent surge in the COVID-19 infection cases, it was decided to inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of all these projects from Chandigarh only.

Responding to a question regarding the state Government’s Parivar Pehchan Patra scheme, this scheme of the State Government has already been lauded by other states. During a recent meeting, the British High Commissioner too had evinced interest to get information about this scheme of Haryana.
