Haryana Deputy Chief Minister, Dushyant Chautala said that the all-round development of villages is the highest priority of the state government. Over the past three and a half years, the government has continuously endeavoured to provide basic facilities to the rural population.
Deputy Chief Minister, Dushyant Chautala said this while addressing a public meeting in Shamdo village during his visit to the Uchana assembly constituency. He highlighted the construction of digital libraries and community centers in every village. Additionally, the government is focusing on the beautification of ponds, renovating public choupals, and constructing gymnasiums and rural stadiums. A comprehensive policy has been formulated to establish community centers, with land allocations of one to three acres based on panchayat availability. Presently, more than two hundred community centres and e-libraries are under construction in approximately 950 panchayats across the state, he added.
The Deputy Chief Minister said that the state government has made a significant decision to provide permanent relief to farmers regarding the longstanding issue of floods. A budget provision of Rs. 1200 crore has been allocated for this purpose. The government has identified nine districts that are prone to flooding, causing damage to crops during heavy rainfall and flooding. The installation of suction bores in these flood-affected areas has proven to be a considerable relief for farmers. In addition to the Shamdo village in the assembly constituency, approximately a dozen neighboring villages adjacent to Chattar will also benefit from this decision. The government has approved a budget of Rs. 70 crore specifically for the installation of suction bores in these villages. This proactive measure aims to address the perennial problem faced by farmers during the monsoon season, ensuring that their crops are protected from the adverse effects of flooding.
Under the Khet Khaliyan Yojana, the fields in the Uchana area have been paved at a cost of Rs. 58 crore. He further announced the construction of a boundary wall, pathway, and shed for the cremation ground in Chandpur village, along with the construction of an entrance named after Dada Chudiaram. Furthermore, he directed the SDM of Uchana to address the issue of water logging in Chandpur school at Uchana, he added.
