Chandigarh, (Face2News)

The Haryana Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr Krishan Kumar Bedi, has said that Mr Abhay Chautala grumbles as even members of his family refuse to trust him. The INLD is fighting the last battle of existence and after 2019, the shop named INLD will be closed forever.

Reacting to the statements of Opposition leader at a media briefing here today, Mr Bedi said the kind of statements Mr Abhay Chautala was giving reflected his thinking. Replying to a question on his statement on the drugs issue, Mr Bedi said either he should prove his statement otherwise we will drag him to the court.

Mr Bedi said Mr Chautala should first solve his family issues and then think about solving the problems faced by the society. He gives statements outside but escapes from the Vidhan Sabha.

INLD had gone to dig the canal, but were not able to attract even 2,500 people. Mr Abhay Chautala had also said that plying of vehicles from Punjab to Haryana should not be allowed but hardly anybody came forward to support him. His every program goes haywire and his own party people are leaving the INLD 

Even on the SYL, the INLD had gone to dig the canal, but were not able to attract even 2,500 people. Mr Abhay Chautala had also said that plying of vehicles from Punjab to Haryana should not be allowed but hardly anybody came forward to support him. His every program goes haywire and his own party people are leaving the INLD today.

Mr Bedi said the Centre and state governments had given immense benefits to the farmers the opposition could never think about. That’s why they are giving gibberish statements.
Responding to a question on the statement made by the former Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Mr Bedi said time was running against Mr Hooda. The Congress leadership at the Centre is not ready to give him any responsibility. Mr Hooda is in a dilemma whether to stay put in Congress or form a separate party.
“The words Mr Hooda uses against the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, are not liked by people. Our government is still filling the pits dug by earlier governments”, he added.

Mr Bedi said Mr Hooda tells people not to pay electricity bills and he would waive off the dues on coming to power. This thinking had put Haryana to heavy losses. Mr Hooda sheds crocodile tears for people and is least concerned about them or their well being. People can not forget Mirchpur or Gohana scandal of Mr Hooda, Mr Bedi added. 


Mr. Krishan Kumar said that a sum of about Rs 448 crore is being disbursed to 25,12,535 beneficiaries per month under all social pension schemes in the state. In this direction, all pensions would be increased from Rs 1,800 to Rs 2,000 per month from November 1, 2018 onwards, as promised by the present State Government.
Mr. Krishan Kumar was addressing a press conference regarding the achievements of the present State Government, here today. He said that the budget of the department has been increased from Rs 4,912 crore to Rs 6,077 crore in 2018-19.

He said that during the tenure of 45 months, the present State Government has worked in consonance with the vision of the Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal to provide all type of social pensions through online and banking system thus putting a check on corruption.

Similarly, Rs 488 crore has been provided to 1,27,845 beneficiaries under Financial Assistance to Orphan Children. Under this scheme, financial assistance is provided to a child until he or she attains the age of 21 years.

He said that a target has been set to make government buildings accessible to disabled persons in 10 districts namely Panchkula, Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat, Sonipat, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Hisar and Rewari.

The Minister said that on the initiative of Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, it has been decided to organise special camps in all parliamentary constituencies to distribute artificial limbs and accessories to disabled persons with the assistance of Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation of India (ALIMCO). Such special camps have been organised in Faridabad, Sonipat, Kurukshetra and Karnal parliamentary constituencies and artificial limbs and accessories were distributed to 6,606 beneficiaries. Such camp would soon be organised in Ambala Parliamentary Constituency. He said that as a result of the efforts of the Union minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr. Krishan Pal Gurjar, ALIMCO would set up its second unit in Tigaon city of Faridabad for which five acres of land has been made available by the State Government and the Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal had recently laid its foundation stone. He said that special identity cards were being given to disabled persons. As many as 12,000 disabled persons have so far been registered for special ID cards, of which such cards have been issued to more than 10,000 beneficiaries
