Haryana CM visits village after 11 months of being turned away
New Delhi, Feb. 4 (Delhi Crown): Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday visited a village in his home constituency Karnal after 11 months of not being allowed by the farmers when the agitation against the 3 farms laws was at its peak.
Khattar visited the Kaimla village and paid obeisance at a temple. On the occasion he announced Rs 50 lakhs for a langar hall at the temple.
Speaking to reporters, the Haryana CM said that his Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) will form government in neighbouring state of Punjab, where polls are slated to take place later this month.
On January 10 Khattar was to address the Kisan Panchayat at the village to talk about the benefits of the three farm laws which were repealed last year. But the protesting farmers had occupied the helipad where Khattar was to land and also ransacked the venue. After that the CM was forced to cancel the visit to the village.
