Cooking gas connection would be provided to every household in Haryana within the next one year and the state would be made kerosene-free, said Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday in Panchkula.
Khattar was speaking at a gram sabha meeting organised under the ‘Gram Uday se Bharat Uday’ campaign in Shyamtoo in Panchkula on Thursday.
The ‘Gram Uday se Bharat Uday’ campaign is being run in 5.5 lakh villages all over the country, including more than 6,000 villages in Haryana. The campaign was launched by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, to promote rural development and social harmony, on the occasion of B R Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary on April 14.
Describing gram sabha as a strong unit of democracy, Khattar urged people to actively participate in its meetings and draft a framework for development works and future schemes. “PM Modi will address all gram panchayats through televisions and radios on April 24 on the occasion of Panchayati Raj Day,” he said.
He announced the construction of a gymnasium on two-acre land in Shyamtoo village and a community centre between the villages of Kanauli and Shyamtoo.
