Press Trust of India Chandigarh
The M L Khattar government in Haryana is to hold a 'manthan shivir' next week to deliberate upon different aspects, including the outcome and efficacy of various ongoing welfare schemes in the state.
The brainstorming sessions to be held on September 5 would be attended by all the Cabinet ministers, chairpersons and deputy chairpersons of various boards, besides the key office bearers of the BJP's state unit, said Haryana Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Krishan Kumar here today.
The 'manthan shivir' follows a similar 'chintan shivir' held by the Khattar government last year in December at Timber Trail resort in Himachal Pradesh, inviting severe criticism from the Opposition, which had dubbed it as an "excursion" at the cost of public exchequer.
Haryana Minister Kumar, however, said the 'mantahn shivir' would be held in Chandigarh or nearby area.
Chief Minister Khattar had defended his "chintan shivir" saying a blueprint of a "new Haryana" had been prepared in the event attended by his ministerial colleagues and officers.
