17 lakh jobs in Ggn, but none for Haryanvis: Dushyant Chautala
NEW DELHI: Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) made a strong political pitch ahead of the 2019 Haryana assembly elections, at a massive rally at Ramlila Maidan here on Wednesday.
The major objective of the rally was to raise the issue of Haryana not getting its share of water from Punjab as per Sutluj-Yamuna link pact. However, other issues like job creation among the youth and farmer distress were also raised.
The opposition party also mentioned the Gurugram growth story and highlighted that even as the city was progressing rapidly its advantages were not passed on to Haryanvis.
"There are 17 lakh jobs today in Gurugram. Yet Haryanvis and locals are not getting jobs and it is being taken by people from other regions. Gurugram's success story is not getting passed on to people of the state," said Dushyant Chautala, INLD MP from Hisar.
Chautala also raised the issue of major industries in Gurugram now shifting their base to other states.
"Maruti, which has contributed a great deal to the development of Gurugram, is not expanding further in the district but shifting its manufacturing facility to Gujarat," he added. The attack on the state government comes just two days before the state budget is going to be presented on Friday.
