Different parties in one voice: Develop Faridabad

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, March 8

Led by legislators of the Treasury Benches, MLAs from Faridabad, cutting across party lines, demanded that the district get its due and be developed to restore its lost glory here today.

Taking on the BJP government, Mool Chand Sharma raised the issue of the Ballabhgarh auditorium lying incomplete and demanded a time frame for its completion during the Question Hour of the Budget session of the Assembly.

Dissatisfied with Urban Local Bodies Minister Kavita Jain’s reply that it would be completed with the funds from the municipal corporation, Sharma said that the MC would never be able to generate those kind of funds.

He added that only the Chief Minister’s announcements were being taken up in Faridabad in the name of development and not one project had been completed so far.

He was seconded by MLA Seema Trikha, who sought support from MLAs of other parties to demand development and completion of all ongoing projects.

Health Minister Anil Vij said that appointment letters had been issued to 157 doctors who were in the waiting list which was prepared during the previous recruitment. He said 386 doctors had already joined their duty under this recruitment.

Replying to a question, he said that appointment letters to 543 doctors had been issued. He added that the doctors had been posted.

In reply to another question, the minister said that according to national standards, blood bank could be opened in those places where blood transfusion of more than 2,000 units took place. On this basis, blood bank has been established in all districts of the state, he said.

He said transfusion of less than 1,000 units of blood took place in Dabwali, yet a blood bank would be opened there due to demand of people and geographical conditions there. For this, the officials had been directed to take necessary action and take stock of the situation, he said.

Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister Om Prakash Dhankar said that a provision of Rs 300 crore had been made under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana in 2017-18. The claim process for kharif 2017 was under process and would be finalised by April 2018, he said in response to a question.
