Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said during the past eight and a half years, the BJP-led government in the state has not only launched several public welfare schemes but also ensured their meticulous implementation.             
    
Interacting with residents of Jhansi village in Kurukshetra district during a 'Jan Samvad' programme, he also highlighted the opening of medical colleges in every district and said with this, the health system has been further strengthened.
    
"For the past eight and half years the present state government, while following the motto of 'Haryana Ek-Haryanvi Ek' and upholding the spirit of 'Antyodaya', has not only launched several public welfare schemes but has also ensured their meticulous implementation at the grassroots," Khattar said on the first of his three-day visit to the district to interact with villagers as part of 'Jan Samvad'
    
The chief minister said 'Haryana Ek-Haryanvi Ek' is not just a slogan for him, but his resolution. 
    
"Compared to the previous government (in the state), our government's tenure will always have an upper hand in terms of both development works and providing state-of-the-art health facilities to citizens," he said at the 'Jan Samvad', according to an official statement issued here.
    
Printing and Stationery Minister Sandeep Singh, who is the BJP MLA from Pehowa, was also present at the programme. 
    
"Our government has ensured direct benefits to the actual beneficiaries, apart from ensuring infrastructural development and reach of public welfare schemes to beneficiaries at their doorsteps," Khattar said.      
    
Khattar started the 'Jan Samvad' programme in Rohtak district last year and after that, the programme was organised in Sirsa, Sonipat, Karnal, Fatehabad, Bhiwani, and Palwal districts. 
    
During 'Jan Samvads', people share their grievances with the chief minister and he directs officials to resolve their problems on the spot.                   
In another 'Jan Samvad' at Nalvi village in Kurukshetra district, Khattar approved Rs 2 crore for 16 development works to be executed in the village.
    
With the implementation of the 'Parivar Pehchan Patra' (family id) scheme, 12.5 lakh new BPL cards have been made in the state, he said at Nalvi.
    
"We don't believe in offering freebies, rather we aim to make citizens self-reliant. For this several programmes have been run by the government to increase the income of 'Antyodaya' families. Increasing the income of all such families certainly increases the financial condition of the entire family,” said the chief minister.
    
En route to the 'Jan Samvad' at Nalvi, Khattar stopped his convoy and interacted with a group of farmers cultivating sunflowers.
    
He told them that the state government procures sunflower crops at the minimum support price.
    
Khattar visited the Government High School in Tangaur village and took stock of the arrangements in the school. He also inquired about the facilities available for children and interacted with them. 
    
At Jhansa village, Chief Minister Khattar said that in 2014, there were only 750 MBBS seats in Haryana and this has now increased to 1,850.    
    
The government is focusing on rural development and works are being done transparently through e-tendering, he said.
    
Khattar also laid the foundation stone for development works worth Rs 6.38 crore for Phase-2 of the new grain market in Jhansi.         
    
He said the development schemes formulated in the interest of farmers are being implemented meticulously on the ground.
