Deepender accuses govt of shelving major projects; Is Deepender saying right?
The Congress MP from Rohtak Deepender Singh Hooda has alleged that the BJP government has derailed the state from the path of growth and development and “also inflicted much damage to the social fabric by adopting its divisive politics”.
Addressing a gathering in Narnaund town, Deepender, who is on a visit to various Assembly segments for the last three days, said political vibes of the state had made it clear that the people were eager to overthrow “the corrupt and non-performing BJP government”. Hopefully, the Congress would come to power and the state would again march ahead on the path of development, he said.
Revealing a long list of projects which has been reportedly shelved by the BJP government, the Congress MP said the previous government had planned to set up an international airport on the border of three districts – Hisar, Rohtak and Bhiwani – at an estimated cost of Rs 20-25,000 crores. “Another major project of setting up a rail coach factory in Gohana having an investment of about Rs 3,500 crore was shifted elsewhere by this government. These two projects would have drawn huge investment, besides being a major source of employment for the local youth,” Hooda said.
He alleged that the project of connecting Hansi to Rohtak via rail link was initiated when the then UPA government’s Railway Minister laid the foundation stone of the project in Hansi in 2013. But the BJP government seems to have no interest in pursuing the project and, thus, it has been hanging fire.
Hooda stated that these projects would be expedited if the Congress government came to power.
