Haryana has shown 'zero tolerance' towards corruption: Khattar

Press Trust of India  |  Jind (Hry) 

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today asserted that his government has shown "zero tolerance" towards corruption during nearly two-year rule in the state.

He said the government will ensure that benefits of various schemes, meant for the poor and weaker sections, reach the intended beneficiaries.



"We have taken steps to weed out corruption in the state. Many schemes for the poor were running earlier also but it was not the poor who benefitted," he claimed.

Addressing 'Samrasta Divas' rally here, Khattar talked about the government's decision to link the Public Distribution System (PDS) with "to inject transparency and make it corruption-free".

He said five lakh "fake beneficiaries" were identified who were illegally availing the subsidy both on kerosene and LPG and saved Rs 101 crore to the state exchequer.

"We are taking the help of IT to eliminate corruption, like we have started Direct Benfit Transfer scheme," he said.

Khattar said to clear the backlog of posts for Scheduled Castes, the government will carry out special recruitment drive within six months.

He also said that a 'Safai Karamchari Aayog' would be set up in the state.
