The achievement of the state has been outstanding in terms of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign-Manoher Lal.

Chandigarh, Sept 17–The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, has said that the achievement of the state has been outstanding in terms of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign. The sex ratio in districts such as Sonepat and Panipat which was low has now crossed the mark of 950 girls per 1,000 boys. This has been hailed by sociologists, as an ideal condition.
Addressing media persons in Sonipat today, he said that several steps had been taken to further improve the Haryana Police. As many as 5,000 new police personnel would be recruited by next year. When the BJP Government was formed in the state, female police personnel worked out to only six per cent of the force, but now their strength has been inceased to 8.5 per cent. The aim is to raise it further. Women police stations have been opened in districts and these would now be opened at sub- division level.
Regarding facilities for education, the Chief Minister said the state had adequate basic infrastructure to raise education to a higher level. During the tenure of the previous government, the level of education had degraded for nine years due to the policy of not failing students from Classes I to VIII.
Now, the present government has re-started the test system and implemented new things besides taking other steps. “I have been visiting each district for two days and the visit to Sonepat forms part of this programme. During my visit to Sonepat, I inaugurated and laid foundation stones of 13 projects worth Rs 68 crore”, he added.
Mr. Manohar Lal said the present state government had worked to eliminate corruption from tehsils and other government departments. Apart from this, making online various services, including issuance of licenses, is main achievement of the state government. Plans have been made to set up trauma centres every 60 kilometres and such centres would be established on highways on priority basis, he added
