Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said the facility of "CM Window", a portal for public grievances, currently available at the district level, would now be extended to the sub-division level to make things easy for the people of the state. Work on the project is going on, Chief Minister said while addressing a public meeting in Sonipat today. He announced a slew of incentives for the Sonipat Assembly constituency, including connecting the Narela road to Rohtak road with a bypass to reduce traffic congestion, shifting of the city bus-stand to GT Road, shifting of the vegetable market, expansion of the bypass, beautification of the drain flowing in the middle of city, increasing capacity of the sugar mill, four-laning of the Old Delhi Road and regularisation of new colonies. The Chief Minister said that development would be carried out in Sonipat to meet the expectations of the people. He announced installation of CCTV cameras in the city, replacement of old electricity wires and poles and shifting of the Fire Brigade office. Referring to the Sutlej-Yamuna Canal, he said it was the lifeline of the farmers of the state. Efforts are being made to bring the state its rightful share in the river waters, he said. "In this regard, an all-party delegation will meet President Pranab Mukherjee on November 28," he said. Describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation decision as historic, he said it would strengthen the Indian economy. Khattar urged the people to adopt electronic payment method. "In 1947, one dollar used to be equal to one rupee but due to the wrong policies followed by previous governments, the value of the Indian rupee has now been reduced to only 15 per cent," he said, according to an official release.
