CM Manohar Lal Khattar inaugurates 347 projects worth Rs 2,741 crore

Four Nuh projects to address water shortage in 66 villages

-CM Manohar Lal Khattar took a significant step to combat the water scarcity prevailing in more than
66 villages by introducing four new drinking water initiatives in the Nuh constituency. The combined
cost of these projects amounts to Rs 306 crore. The Chief Minister marked the inauguration of a
total of 347 projects valued at approximately Rs 2,741 crore, which he accomplished via video-
conferencing from Ferozepur Jhirka, Nuh.
Furthermore, CM Khattar announced the upcoming construction of a road connecting Nuh to
Mundaka village, with work set to commence in November. As part of the efforts to address the
water shortage, 80 villages in Ferozepur Jhirka will witness an increase in their drinking water
capacity from 55 to 70 liters per capita per day.
“Today’s projects have not only augmented the pace of development that has been going on for the
last eight-and-a-half years but have also made this day a historic one. Nuh district’s biggest project is
the rain well-based drinking water scheme, benefiting the people of Ferozepur Jhirka,” the CM said.
According to him, this project will solve the problem of water shortage and improve infrastructure.
Earlier, he said, people had to pay for water to even end ‘rozas’. “The area did not have enough
water for people to irrigate their fields,” said Khattar.
Accusing the previous governments for the underdevelopment of Nuh, Chief Minister Khattar
asserted that the district has made remarkable progress under the BJP administration, advancing by
decades. He emphasized that unlike his predecessors, his government did not focus on one-sided
development but instead ensured equal attention to all districts. Despite being categorized as a
backward district, Nuh has shown consistent improvement across all parameters during their tenure.
Khattar pointed out the significance of the Delhi-Mumbai corridor passing through Nuh, which is
expected to attract industries to the area, consequently generating employment opportunities.
The Chief Minister further highlighted the state government's commitment to combat corruption
and nepotism, practices that were allegedly encouraged by the previous administrations. He also
criticized the Congress for misleading the public with false claims about unemployment, stating that
a 6 to 7 percent unemployment rate is typical in both developing and developed states.
An allocation of Rs 144.32 crore has been earmarked for the improvement of water and power
supply in the region. Chief Minister Khattar laid the foundation stone for three projects facilitated by
the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) to address crucial concerns regarding
drainage, water, and electricity.
The projects encompass the construction of Leg IV drain, connecting Vatika Chowk and NH-48
alongside the Southern Peripheral Road. Additionally, there will be the establishment of a 33/11KV
substation at Behrampur Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and a 66KV substation at Basai Water
Treatment Plant (WTP). These initiatives aim to enhance the overall infrastructure and utility
services in the area, benefiting the residents and promoting further development.
