A total of Rs 560 crore will be spent to buy these tablets. The government will also plan to give tablets to students of other classes in future.
The Chief Minister said that soon 15 thousand tubewell connections would be given to the farmers. In this meeting, the process of purchasing power equipment worth Rs 350 crore was completed. Wire, transformer and other equipment will be procured for tube well connection. This will benefit thousands of farmers associated with Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam.
Know when and which students will get this gift
To a question, he said that curbing corruption is the priority of his government. If any officer or employee is found involved in corruption, strict action will be taken against him. If anyone gets any information related to corruption in jobs or departments, then immediately inform the Vigilance. Jobs are getting in their government on the basis of merit. In order to ensure that the youth of poor families get proper representation in jobs, his government has decided to give five additional marks. At present students are getting attracted towards studies and preparing for competitive examinations due to getting jobs on merit basis.
Khattar said that in his government, jobs will never be allowed to run on slips and expenses. Earlier some people’s representatives used to claim that they have given many government jobs in their area, but today no one says that we have got government jobs. Rather, they are getting jobs on the basis of their qualification. His government is working to get those who do corruption in jobs punished.
