'Don't rely on me': Khattar snubs job seeker; video goes viral; Are Khattar avoiding giving jobs?
A video of Manohar Lal Khattar snubbing a Karnal resident who asked the Haryana CM to keep his promise of a job to him has become talk of the town. The CM reportedly asked the job seeker to work on his own instead of relying on him for a job.
The video has gone viral and even the opposition leaders taking a dig at the CM. Randeep Singh Surjewala, media cell incharge of Congress, shared this video on Twitter and slammed the CM for "his way of public dealing".
On July 22 when Khattar was listening to the grievances of people at PWD Rest House, one Tej Partap Arora, a resident of Gandhinagar in the city, reminded the CM of his promise of a job during the latter's visit at his residence two years back.
He requested Khattar for a job, but the CM reportedly asked him to do some work as he "looks healthy and fit", instead of relying on him.
Arora alleged that the CM did not keep his promise. The CM had assured Arora's family a job when he had come to their residence to mourn the death of his wife and son in an accident in Panipat. His father had also received injuries in the accident.
In the video, Arora also lost his cool and said if the CM cannot fulfil promises, he should give false hope. After this, the security staff whisked him away.
Colleges, varsities set for student polls; Is there a passion for students union elections?
Likely in September-October | Elections were scrapped by HVP-BJP govt 22 years ago
Colleges and universities in the state are gearing up for student body elections in the current academic session nearly 22 years after these were discontinued by the HVP-BJP government led by Bansi Lal.
Sources in Manohar Lal Khattar government said that the BJP government was committed to holding student body elections in colleges and universities across the state in September-October this year.
Khattar categorically assured a delegation of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, student wing of the BJP, that student elections would definitely be held during the current academic session.
He directed DCs and SPs through video-conferencing to make all arrangements to ensure that the elections were held in a peaceful manner.
Khattar’s media adviser Rajiv Jain asserted that the modalities for conducting the elections would be worked out soon.
“Conducting student body elections was one of the poll promises of the BJP in the 2014 Assembly elections. The party is committed to fulfilling its promise to take the democratic process to educational institutions,” he said.
Following deliberations with stakeholders, the government had formed a committee under Prof Tankeshwar Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, Guru Jambeshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar, to explore the possibilities of student elections.
The committee had reportedly favoured ‘indirect elections’ in one report.
The then HVP-BJP government led by Bansi Lal had discontinued student body elections in 1996. Current Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma held the same portfolio when the elections were discontinued.
All major political parties have student wings, which will contest student body elections. The Congress has the National Student Union of India as its student wing and the INLD has the Indian National Student Organisation as its student wing.
