Khattar Government Took No Step To Avoid Gurgaon Jam: BS Hooda

Gurgaon faced massive jam on July 28-July 29.


Chandigarh:  Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today slammed the state's government, claiming it took no concrete steps to avoid Gurgaon traffic jam situation.

"Just changing the names of schemes and cities won't help. The government will have to deliver on ground. They renamed Gurgaon as Gurugram, but after massive traffic jam there this week the people have renamed it as Gurujam," Mr Hooda said.

"Whatever excuse the government may give, the truth is that they took no concrete step to avoid such a situation. No desilting work of Badshahpur and Najafgarh drains has taken place in the last two years," he added.

He said when Congress government led by him was in power for ten years, heavy spells were witnessed, but never before did Gurgaon see such massive traffic jams.

"See the turn which the situation took this time even when it had rained just for a few hours in Gurgaon. People were trapped in jams for up to 20 hours," he said.

"During our time, 90 per cent work on 18 km-long Dwarka expressway was completed, but during BJP's rule, things have moved at snail's pace," he said.

"A tender for a flyover near the Hero Honda Chowk, which acts as a traffic bottleneck, had been floated in January 2014, but things have got stalled after they came to power," he said.

He said Khattar government is trying to shift the blame to Delhi government, saying they did not open the gate of Najafgarh drain.

"When Congress was in power in Haryana, each year senior officers of the two neighbouring states used to hold meetings to avoid such situations. But now they are only trying to indulge in blame game with AAP government," he said.

Mr Hooda also took a jibe at Khattar government for its claim about investments it had mobilised after 'Happening Haryana Global Investors Summit 2016' a few months back.
"While everyone knows that investments haven't come, however, this massive traffic jam will not only shake the faith of investors, it will also bring a bad name to the industrial town around the world," he said.

"One does not know who actually is in command here. The Chief Minister will say one thing, his Ministers will say another," he said.

"It is a non-performing government, which believes only in Badla (vendetta), Badli (transferring officials), Nam Badal (changing names of existing schemes), Jeb Katu (burdening common man with price rise etc) and Feeta Katu Sarkar (inaugurating schemes)," he said.
