Rs. 160 cr. to improve rural areas in Haryana

Special Correspondent

CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Government has spent Rs.160 crore to execute development works under the Haryana Rural Development Fund scheme during the past two years to improve the basic amenities in the rural areas, Chief Parliamentary Secretary Dharambir Singh said here on Saturday.

He said this amount was spent on construction of streets and pavements, repair of school buildings, construction of additional rooms in schools, chaupals for Scheduled Castes, veterinary hospitals, dispensaries and providing other public utility facilities.

The Congress Government, he added, had taken many significant decisions to develop the rural areas at par with the urban areas including setting up of the Haryana Rural Development Authority on the pattern of the Haryana Urban Development Authority which would be responsible for the development of villages in a planned manner.

Mr. Dharambir said the Government was also implementing various poverty alleviation programmes which included Swarnjyanti Gram Swarozgar Yojna, Sampurna Gram Rozgar Yojna, Indira Awaas Yojna and National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme. A major initiative of the Government was to develop model villages in the State, he added.

He disclosed that the Government had ordered a fresh survey of Below Poverty Line families that would be totally fair and transparent.

It would be completed within the next three months, he added.

A committee had been constituted under the chairmanship of Commissioner of Rohtak division to make recommendations on the desirability and feasibility of extending the Abadi-Deh and Lal Dora in the villages of the State.

It had been directed to submit its report within two months.
