Govt firm on ensuring water to tail-end villages: Khattar

Inspects rejuvenation work of Jawahar Lal Nehru canal in Jhajjar

Jhajjar :
The state government is committed to ensuring canal water to tail-end villages in south Haryana. Hence, a project worth Rs 143 crore is being executed to rejuvenate the Jawahar Lal Nehru (JLN) canal which is considered the lifeline of the region. The Masani barrage in Rewari district is also being filled for the past two years.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said this while interacting with mediapersons after inspecting the ongoing rejuvenation work of the JLN Feeder in Salhavaas town in the district.

He also inaugurated the Neer-Swaran Jayanti Rest House located in Jhajjar and felicitated 102-year-old Kanwar Singh of Ridhau village (Sonepat) who had done digging work of the JLN Feeder in 1939 at the remuneration of merely 6 paisa per day.

“No doubt, there is a shortage of water in Haryana, but ponds and reservoirs can be filled with rain water and used during crisis if the available water is managed properly. Six states, including Haryana, have recently signed a joint consent letter pertaining to Lakhwar Dam in order to resolve the issue of water shortage,” said Khattar, adding that the dam would be readied within two years and the state would have a share of 47 per cent.

Talking about the JLN feeder, the CM said it was for the first time after its construction in 1977 that a provision for spending Rs 143 crore for its rejuvenation had been made.

Agriculture Minister Om Prakash Dhankar was also present on the occasion.

Are the development work going right in the state?
