Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that in the last eight and a half years, the state government has worked for the welfare of all sections, including the poor, farmers, labourers, and traders. By launching new initiatives, every segment of society has benefited and their lives have been made happy and prosperous“The state government has strived to swiftly take Haryana in all the sectors by adopting a ‘Six S strategy’ that is Shiksha, Swabhiman, Swasthya, Suraksha, Swavlambhan and Sushasan. People are satisfied and happy with the work done by the state government for public service as they know that the present state government cares for the poor and unprivileged,” said Sh. Manohar Lal while speaking at a programme organized at Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology in Hisar today.The Chief Minister said several educational reforms have been introduced. A goal has been set to adopt the New Education Policy by 2025, in order to arouse the sense of nationalism in youngsters while simultaneously educating them. Aside from that, model Sanskriti schools have been established in the state to improve education. 4000 play-way schools will be built, ensuring that children’s foundations are strong since childhood, said Sh. Manohar Lal.He stated that with the objective of providing health facilities to the needy, the State Government has started a new scheme named Chirayu Haryana by expanding the scope of Ayushman Bharat Yojana so that more and more people of the state can get the benefit of insurance coverage of Rs. 5 lakhs under this scheme.“Earlier 15 lakh families of the state were being covered under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, but after the Chirayu Haryana scheme, this number has increased to 30 lakh in the state. Apart from this, taking another new initiative, the state government has launched Nirogi Haryana Yojana, under which health checkups for the citizens are being organized. In the first phase, families having an annual income of Rs. 1.80 lakh are being done and the health checkups of 1.21 crore members will be done later on. Under this scheme, 25 types of tests are covered,” informed Sh. Manohar Lal.The Chief Minister said that the law and order situation in the state is intact. In view of women’s safety, the state government has set up separate police stations for women. In the year 2014, there was only one women police station but now the number has risen to 29. Not only that but special cyber police stations have been established to combat the escalating cybercrime, said Sh. Manohar Lal.“The Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana was implemented to increase the income of the poorest of the poor families and to bring them into the mainstream. The sole objective of this scheme is to raise the income of such state households whose yearly income is less than Rs 1 lakh. Antyodaya Melas were held around the state to facilitate the members of such families with various employment opportunities including offering easy loans for self-employment,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.The Chief Minister asked the workers present in the programme to disseminate information about the Central and State Government’s public welfare schemes to the general public so that they can get the maximum benefits of these schemes and services.“A worker should think in terms of one nation, one people, and that only then would we be able to emotionally connect the people with the nation. We cannot strengthen the country if we divide it into castes and classes. Only small-minded people talk about ‘this is yours, this is mine’. A giving person believes that the entire world is his or her family. As a result, all activity done by the central and state governments in the interests of the country and society should be publicized to the masses,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
