Manohar Lal Khattar, the chief minister of Haryana, declared that, in certain cases, the government would pay private college tuition.

In a momentous move, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that girls would receive free education in all state-run and private universities.

This programme is available to households earning no more than Rs 1.80 lakh per year.

In addition, the state government has promised to pay half of the college tuition for females from households earning between Rs 1.80 lakh and Rs 3 lakh.

If necessary, the Haryana government will also pay for private college tuition.

Khattar also disclosed the choice to make Samalkha a municipal council rather than a municipality. Khattar also unveiled a development plan for Samalkha’s citizens, stating that two sectors, each covering 100 acres, would be established in areas of Samalkha where land is accessible.

In the statement, he also highlighted the government’s achievements since 2014, stressing its commitment to ending caste-based politics, reducing crime, and destroying corruption.

With an emphasis on issues like education, health, security, self-respect, self-reliance, service, and good governance, Khattar emphasised the state’s appeal to investors.

In addition, he declared that a 100-bed hospital would replace the current 50-bed community health centre in Samalkha.

He also listed a number of other development projects, such as building an eight-kilometer underpass at Narayana Gate in Samalkha, 6.80 crore underpass construction at Ravidas Sabha and Kashyap Rajput Dharamshala, and an eight-kilometer eastern bypass on the minor road from Karhans village near Pattikalyana.

In addition, he declared that ₹ 2 crore would be allocated for the installation of lights and beautifying Chulkana Dam, as well as the construction of a bypass on the highway in front of the Samalkha bus stop.

In addition, Mr. Khattar stated that the Punjabi Sabha building’s ongoing construction will resume.

A bus stop in the village, a vegetable market in Bapauli valued at ₹ 1.25 crore, and a bridge on the Nangla R Drain, estimated to cost ₹ 4.5 crore, were among the other projects revealed.

Additionally, the Chief Minister set aside ₹ 25 crore for PWD road repairs and ₹ 8.5 crore for the marketing board’s nine roads.

According to the statement, he also emphasised the government’s accomplishments since 2014, stressing its dedication to ending caste-based politics, lowering crime rates, and destroying corruption.
