Centre ignoring Haryana for mega projects: Hooda

Shiv Rawal | Chandigarh |

Congress MP Deepender Singh Hooda has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – led government at Centre of overlooking the Haryana by not announcing any major project for the state in past three and half years.

While speaking to The Statesman, Hooda said, “The Central government led by the BJP has ignored the state of Haryana when it came to development works as no mega project was announced by the Centre for the state.

None of the budgets presented during the present regime had any such announcement for Haryana while during the previous regime led by the Congress, more than a dozen mega projects were announced for Haryana.”

Further accusing the BJP government in the state of failing to persuade the Centre and bring any big venture, Hooda alleged that even the ruling party’s MPs from Haryana do not raise the said issue in the Parliament.

Earlier also, Hooda had accused the Centre of shifting development works from Haryana to other states including the International Airport approved for Meham in Rohtak which was later on allegedly shifted to Jewar in Greater Noida  in Uttar Pradesh.
