Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said that the new Haryana Government would review all the announcements and decisions pertaining to appointments or recruitments made after May 16, 2014 by the previous government.
Khattar was addressing the media persons shortly after the Cabinet Meeting here today. He said that after proper review those found to be in public interest would be continued and where any discrepancies are found, the decision would be taken as per law.
He said that Cabinet has also decided to stop all the ongoing recruitments with immediate effect. Apart from that, all the re-employment made during the regime of previous government would be re-examined. ‘I have asked to prepare a list of such re-employment so as to take further action in the next Cabinet Meeting’, he added.
Khattar said that Cabinet also decided to review the complaints of paddy procurement and action on the same would be taken in the next Cabinet Meeting.
On being asked to comment on allotment of portfolio of newly inducted Ministers, the Chief Minister said that portfolio would soon be given.
When Khattar attention was drawn on Change of Land Use (CLU) related decisions of previous government and investigation concerning Robert Vadra case, the Chief Minister said that his government would not act with the spirit of vendetta. Law will take its own course on all such complaints. The priority of the state government is to implement their agenda which is aimed at the welfare of people of the state, added Khattar.
In reply to a query concerning implementation of enhanced old age samman allowance and pay scale to government employees on Punjab pattern, the Chief Minister said that review of announcements does not imply rejecting them. After the review, whatever is found suitable would be implemented and the others would be cancelled. The present State Government would take care of the interest of its employees, he added.
