interacting with media persons, the Chief Minister said that the problem of water logging is commonly seen in 10 districts namely Rohtak, Jhajjar, Bhiwani, Hisar, Jind, Fatehabad, Sonipat, Kaithal, Palwal and Sirsa. Therefore, giving special focus to these 10 districts, most of the schemes approved in today’s meeting are for these districts only.
He said that it has been decided to hold a meeting of the Haryana State Drought Relief and Flood Control Board twice a year in the months of January and May. The short-term projects and long-term projects decided in the January meeting will be reviewed in the month of May. For water conservation and water reuse, the budget has been increased from Rs 35 crore, allocated previously to Rs 167 crore, shared Sh. Manohar Lal.
He said that instead of draining out the water from the population and agricultural sector, emphasis is being laid on recharging of this water. More than 50 acres of the area have a waterlogging problem, the government is ready to take this area and work will be done to construct a pond or recharge well on this land.
Chief Secretary, Sh. Sanjeev Kaushal, Chief Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Sh. D S Dhesi, Additional Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Dr. Amit Agrawal and various Administrative Secretaries also remained present in the meeting. The Deputy Commissioners of all the districts also joined the meeting virtually.
