Gurgaon, April 5- The Haryana Chief Minister Sh Manohar Lal today said that he had raised the demand of a separate High Court for Haryana besides two High Court Benches, one each for South Haryana and West Haryana in a meeting with the Prime Minister, Union Law Minister and Chief Justice of India at New Delhi. The Chief Minister was interacting with media persons at Pataudi, after inaugurating a sub division level mini secretariat there. The three storey mini secretariat has been constructed at a cost of Rs 8.85 crore. Sh Manohar Lal participated in three different programmes in Pataudi. While interacting with the media persons, he said that since the areas of South Haryana and West Haryana were situated far from the Chandigarh Headquarter, one Bench of High Court need to be set up in each of those areas. This demand has been raised at the Delhi meeting today. He said that a demand to appoint judges from Punjab and Haryana in the ratio of 50:50 was also made because the number of pending cases from Haryana in High Court is more than 1.40 lac whereas the cases from Punjab are about 1.24 lac. Presently, the judges in High Court from Punjab and Haryana were in the ratio of 60:40. On the issue of damages in crops due to hailstorm and unseasonal rains, the Chief Minister said that the farmers will get compensation as per their actual losses. Earlier, the state had demanded an interim relief of Rs 500 crore but again it rained and the losses increased. When Union Minister Ram Bilas Paswan and Dr Sanjeev Balyan visited Haryana, the losses were estimated to be around Rs 1137 crore but after that visit also, it rained heavily causing more losses to farmers. Mr Manohar Lal assured the farmers that they will certainly get compensation more than the previous regimes when the farmers were given cheques of Rs 5, Rs 10, Rs 20 or Rs 50 which was a joke with the farmers. Now, the state government has decided that any farmer would not get compensation of less than Rs 500. He said that orders have been issued to all the concerned officers to complete the special girdawari by 15th April and the farmers will be paid compensation within 30 days after receiving reports from the Deputy Commissioner. When he was asked that the Congress leaders were alleging that the special Girdawari was not done properly, Mr Manohar Lal said that it’s only for creating confusion among the public by making statement. He claimed that his party MLAs were going to fields and were ensuring that girdawari was done properly. He exhorted the MLAs from opposition parties to visit the farmer’s fields and ensure proper girdawari of the damaged crops in their areas. Nevertheless, the farmers should also not depend on the analysis done by the Patwari, if they are not satisfied they can complain to the Agriculture Development Officer, SDM, Deputy Commissioner or the MLA. Later while addressing at Ashram Hari Mandir Shiksha Sansthan at Pataudi, the chief Minister announced construction of a bye pass for Pataudi during this budget year itself. He also announced that BAMS classes would be conducted at the Ashram, if it has such a facility there. The Chief Minister announced construction of a stadium in 6 acres of land in Pataudi and a ‘vyayamshala’ (village stadium) in village Nakhrola, which has offered to provide 2 acres of land for it. He also said that some grant will be given for the Hospital and Sarovar, of which he has laid the foundation today in the Ashram premises though he did not mention the amount. At the same time, the Chief Minister said that village level stadiums will be constructed in the villages which provide 2 acres of land. The State government has decided to construct 1000 village level stadiums in the state. He also said that Yoga will be implemented in the state and sermons from holy Gita will be taught in educational institutions. He said that today he was to inaugurate a Multipurpose Hall in Government College Sector 14 Gurgaon and school rooms in village Chakarpur but the programme was to be postponed because of meeting in Delhi. Now, he would be coming to Gurgaon on 11th April for these programmes. Those present included MLA Pataudi Bimla Chaudhary, MLA Gurgaon Umesh Agarwal, MLA Sohna Tejpal Tanwar, MLA Rewari randhir Kapriwas and officers of police and district administration.
