Karnal awaits CM’s 110 announcements


Even though the assembly elections in Haryana are only three months away, over a hundred announcements made by chief minister

Manohar Lal Khattar in his home constituency Karnal City and the adjoining areas are yet to see the light of day.

Some of these announcements were made at the beginning of his term in 2014, on which work has not been started yet, according to a data provided by the Karnal deputy commissioner to Rajesh Sharma, an RTI activist. Sharma had sought information about chief minister’s announcements made in different constituencies of Karnal district.

The reply says the chief minister has made a total of 480 announcements, including two in 2019, out of which work on 151 projects has been completed, while work on 211 others is in progress. Eight of the announcements were found to be nonfeasible, while 110 projects were still pending and awaiting approval as on March 31this year.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state has completed four and half years, but Karnal is still waiting for completion of some major projects that chief minister Khattar had announced. Several projects are moving at a snail’s pace due to lack of coordination between various departments.

The project to upgrade the Karnal Civil Aviation Club to a domestic airport is hanging fire for the last four years. It is an ambitious project of the chief minister. Development and upgradation of Karan Lake and Oasis tourist complex at Karnal are yet to be completed. Similarly, dairies could not be shifted out of Karnal city even four years after the announcement was made.
