    • Chandigarh, April 14–The Haryana Government has decided to constitute a three-member committee to find out facts about the involvement of people in the untoward incidents that happened during the Bharat Bandh on April 2, 2018.
    • The committee will review all cases registered by the police on that day and if any evidence is found action will be taken against the culprits and the innocent will be released. An IAS officer, an IPS officer and a public representative will be members of the committee.
    • This was announced by the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, while addressing the large gathering at the district level Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations held in Kurukshetra, today.
    • Referring to the April 2 incidents, he said a section of the society was demonstrating peacefully in the state when some anti-social elements infiltrated and tried to disturb the law-and-order situation. The police registered cases against about 100 persons.
    • Mr Manohar Lal said the state government would soon constitute the Haryana Scheduled Castes Commission and advertise for all posts meant for Scheduled Castes at one go to ensure clearance of the backlog. 
    • Besides, efforts would be made to ensure that these posts are filled up on a regular basis. He urged the people to provide best education to their wards so that they could take benefit of the vacancies. About 38,000 group D posts would be advertised within next month and recruitment would be carried out purely on merit basis.
    • While paying rich tributes to Dr Ambedkar, the Chief Minister said many schemes had been launched by the present government for the welfare of people belonging to all sections of the society, especially the Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes. Financial assistance under the Mukhyamantri Vivah Shagun Yojna has been increased to Rs 51,000. 
    • Listing various schemes, he said the Safai Karamchari Ayog had been constituted by the government.  Apart from giving government jobs, the government has set up skill development centres so that youth could get employment opportunities in the private sector.
    • Recalling Dr Ambedkar’s commitment towards nation-building, particularly in the upliftment of the weaker sections of society, he said Dr Ambedkar belonged to all sections of the society. Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhaya carried forward the thoughts of Baba Sahib and work with the spirit of Antodaya.
    • Earlier, the Chief Minister inaugurated seven Antyodaya Bhawans in Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Karnal, Jind, Yamunanagar, Faridabad and Gurugram for dissemination of information about government welfare schemes. At these Bhawans, people will get information about all available schemes of different departments.  He also inaugurated Bharat Nirman Sewa Knedra and E-Disha Kendra of Sub-Division Ladwa and flagged off 10 Swachhta Vahans for different villages.
    • Speaking on this occasion, MLA Mr Subhash Sudha thanked the Chief Minister for ensuring all-round development of Kurukshetra and said that Ambedkar Bhawan was under construction. He listed various development works, including Ayush University, Nursing College, government college and development of parks etc.
    • MLA Dr Pawan Saini said the present government was moving forward with the spirit of Haryana Ek-Haryanavi Ek. This is for the first time that free religious tours to Patna Sahib were conducted by the state government through two trains from Ambala and Sirsa.
    • District BJP President, Mr Dharamvir Mirzapur, also spoke on this occasion. Among others present on this occasion included Principal Secretary, Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr Anil Kumar, Director, Social Justice and Empowerment, Mrs Gauri Prashar, Deputy Commissioner, Mr S.S. Phulia, and District General Secretary Scheduled Caste Cell, Mr Rampal Pali.
    • Chandigarh, April 14–The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, today asked the people not to allow anyone to mislead them. Better analyse for yourself what happened during the previous regimes and what the present government is doing. They should draw the difference and spread awareness among all sections of the society.
    • The Chief Minister was addressing a largely attended district-level Baba Saheb Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations at Kurukshetra today.
    • Taking a dig at the Opposition, he said Bharat Ratna should have been awarded to Dr. Ambedkar immediately after he wrote our Constitution. But he got the award in 1991. The first Bharat Ratna was instead given to Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru in 1955 when he was the Prime Minister. This underscores the pick and choose policy adopted by the then ruling party, he added.
    • Similarly, Indira Gandhi was awarded Bharat Ratna when she became Prime Minister in 1971. Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, who worked for the political unity of the country, got this award in 1990, 39 years after his demise in 1951.
    • Mr Manohar Lal said Dr Ambedkar worked for the upliftment of poor sections of the society. He also gave up the post of Law Minister for the service to the mankind.
    • When Baba Saheb requested the government to provide financial help for getting his book printed, the then Prime Minister Pt Jawaharlal Nehru refused to give any help. It is ridiculous that today they are talking about Baba Saheb, he added.
