Chandigarh, May 11–The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, has ordered vigilance inquiry into various irregularities committed in the development works taken up under the MGNREGA scheme in the Raiwali village of Ambala district. He was presiding over monthly meeting of the District Public Relations and Grievances Redressal Committees in Ambala, today. Acting on another complaint, the Chief Minister ordered checking of all poultry farms in the district and directed the District Administration to ensure that the norms set for running them are duly followed. The residents of village Kalal Majri, Shahzadpur block, Ambala, had complained about the problems faced by them due to the filth being generated by the poultry farm being run near their village. The Chief Minister directed concerned officers to gather information on the battery cage facility used in poultry farms to put a check on the filth and smell from being transmitted. On the complaint regarding encroachment, Mr Manohar Lal directed officers to dispose off such complaints within 96 hours. There seems to be a nexus between the constructor and officers and strict action would be initiated against any officer if found indulging in corrupt practices o allow encroachment. Regarding illegal occupation of the drain area in Sena Nagar, the Chief Minister said that if any officer of the Municipal Corporation was found involved, action would be taken against him. On another complaint regaring the sale of drugs in Nadi Mohalla of Ambala, Mr Manohar Lal said that it should be dealt with by spreading awareness among the masses. He asked the non-official members of the District Public Relations and Grievances Redressal Committees to start a campaign in this regard. Taking cognizance of the unnecessary delay in the redressal of complaints, he said that now that the regime had changed, the administration must redress the grievances at the earliest. He directed the Deputy Commissioner, Mr Mandeep Brar, to ensure redressal of grievances within one month of their receipt. Regarding another complaint of high voltage wires running over houses, Mr Manohar Lal issued directions that after completion of all formalities and taking necessary fee from the complainant, the high voltage wires above their houses should be removed. He urged the people not to buy houses in unauthorized colonies. The state government is making provision to provide houses to the people in large numbers so that they may not get into unauthorized colonies. Regarding legitimacy of the complaints received at CM Window or any other medium, he said that arrangement was being made that the complaint received against an officer would not be investigated by him, but by one who is senior to him. Regarding the unnecessary and frivolous complaints being received at CM Window, he said that efforts were being made to link the complaints wth Aadhaar Card to put a check on such complaints. The Health Minister, Mr. Anil Vij, also spoke on the occasion.
