The Rajiv Gandhi Drinking Water Supply Project worth Rs 425 crore, the first phase of which was inaugurated by UPA chairperson and AICC chief Sonia Gandhi today, was expected to benefit as many as 258 water-starved villages of the Mewat area.

Water shortage has remained an acute problem for the people of the Mewat area ever since its inception. Water crisis, coupled with certain socio-economic factors, has been impeding the development of this area.

Admitting this in her speech, Sonia maintained that the development of Mewat was a challenge since the formation of Haryana in 1966.

Expressing satisfaction over the development works undertaken by the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress regime in Haryana, she said the state government had accorded top priority to end the scarcity of drinking water in the district.

The said project, which was inaugurated at Kondal village in Palwal district, would mainly cater to the people of the Mewat area.

Referring to the instance when the members of the Muslim community of Mewat had decided to stay in India instead of shifting to Pakistan at the time of Partition on an appeal by Mahatma Gandhi, Sonia said the people of Mewat had set an example of social harmony which others should emulate.

Carrying forward the AICC chief’s assertions, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda disclosed that a proposal for the construction of a Mewat canal at an estimated cost of Rs 326.40 crore had been sent to the Central Water Commission for approval.

Hooda pointed out that the country’s first mobile court was started in Mewat, and added that the Kotla lake here was also being developed.

Informally kicking off the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections in Haryana today, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said it was the diplomatic pressure built up by the UPA government which forced Pakistan to admit the use of its soil for launching terror attack on Mumbai in November last.

It was clear from her assertion that if the BJP-led NDA tried to take “the UPA is soft on terror” line in the run up to the elections, the Congress would retaliate by highlighting the success of the Manmohan Singh government in putting Pakistan on the back foot on the Mumbai attacks unlike the times of the Kandhar episode and the attack on Parliament when despite the massive mobilisation of the Indian Army by the then NDA government, Pakistan had not blinked.

Speaking at a public rally after dedicating Rajiv Gandhi Mahavidyalaya set up by the efforts of Haryana Finance Minister Birender Singh here, Sonia said India would give a suitable reply to any such misadventure in future.

Asserting that the country was strong enough to give a befitting reply to the disruptive forces, she urged the people, particularly the youth, to be united to spurn off any move aimed at promoting communal forces. Recalling the efforts made during the tenure of her husband as Prime Minister, she said it was he who brought a revolution in the IT sector of the country, which changed the future of many.

Complimenting Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his colleagues for implementation of several welfare programmes in the state, Sonia, who attended a series of functions in the state today, said the UPA government had sanctioned two major projects, a defence university in Mahendragarh district and an AIIMS campus in Jhajjar district in the past few days. She also referred to the significant role played by commandos, hailing from Haryana, in giving a befitting reply to the terrorists in the Mumbai attacks.

Sonia said Indian economy was strong enough to bear the shock of the recent global recession and it would not be affected much.

In the afternoon the UPA chairperson inaugurated a drinking water scheme christened after her husband in Kondal village of Palwal district. Handing a “superlative credit card” to Hooda, she expressed the hope that he and his government would continue coming up to the expectations of the public in future, too. She went to the extent of saying that the dreams of the former premier about the country’s status in the 21st century would be first fulfilled in Haryana.

She said before the Congress took over the reigns of governance in the state four years ago, Haryana was marked by poor law and order situation and wobbly economic condition. Now the scene had changed dramatically for the better.

Speaking in the area dominated by Meos, a Muslim community, Sonia highlighted various measures taken by the Manmohan Singh government for the welfare of the minorities. Earlier, Hooda highlighted development works done by his government. Sonia also laid the foundation stone of a multi-crore medical college and inaugurated teaching block, a campus school and a girl’s hostel on the campus of Bhagat Phool Singh Women University at Khanpur Kalan village in Sonepat district. She also unveiled a statue of the founder of the institution, Bhagar Pooran Singh.

She was accompanied by Union Ministers Selja, Inderjit Singh and Prithviraj Chavan, who is also in charge of the Congress in Haryana.

कांग्रेस की राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष सोनिया गांधी के आगमन से पहले क्षेत्र की महिलाएं आपस में चर्चा करती रहीं कि दुनिया को प्रभावित करने वाली महिला मेवात के लोगों की मदद करने के लिए आ रही है। उन्होंने ही पेयजल आपूर्ति करवाने के लिए प्लांट लगवाया है। अब सबको भरपूर पानी मिलेगा। मेवात में कोई प्यासा नहीं रहेगा।

यह नजारा था पलवल जिले के गांव कोंडल में राजीव गांधी पेयजल परियोजना के उद्घाटन समारोह का। सभास्थल पर सुबह लगभग 10 बजे से गांव की महिलाओं का आना शुरू हो गया था। महिलाओं के बीच सभास्थल पर आगे बैठने की होड़ लगी हुई थी। लंबी घूंघट में गांव की महिलाओं में तरह-तरह की चर्चाएं भी हो रही थीं। कोई बता रही थी कि सोनिया गांधी दुनिया की प्रधानमंत्री है तो कोई बता रही थी कि वह भारत की रानी है। कई बुजुर्ग महिलाएं सबकी बात सुनने के बाद तपाक से कह उठती थीं, 'अरे नहीं यू तौ म्हारी सहायता करन वास्ते आ रही सै।'

वहीं सभा स्थल पर महेशपुर की विद्या और गहलब की रामदेई कहने लगी, 'हमे ना पतो यू कौन है? हम तो हल्ला हो रहो देखने आ गई।' गहलब की रूपवती और कोंडल की बोहती कह रही थीं कि सुनने में आया कि सोनिया गांधी ताकतवर महिला है। वह हमारे क्षेत्र की रक्षा करने आ रही है।

कई महिलाएं सोनिया गांधी को देखने के बाद उसकी सुंदरता की तारीफ करती हुई घर वापस चली गई। वे कहती थीं, यू तो देखन में विदेशी लग रही थी, लेकिन बोलती तो हिंदी में थी। सोनिया का भाषण पूरा होते ही महिलाएं वाकई सोनिया की दीवानी नजर आने लगीं। ऐसा लग रहा था जैसे क्षेत्र की महिलाएं सोनिया की कायल हो गई हों।

कांग्रेस की राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष सोनिया गांधी ने कहा है कि पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री स्व. राजीव गांधी के बताए रास्ते पर चलकर ही भारत विकसित होगा। उन्होंने कहा कि बदलते भारत का स्वरूप सबसे पहले हरियाणा में दिखाई देगा। यह तभी संभव है, जब देश के विकास में हर इंसान की भागीदारी होगी।

सोनिया रविवार को पलवल जिले के कोंडल गांव में राजीव गांधी पेयजल परियोजना का शुभारंभ करने के बाद जनसभा को संबोधित कर रही थीं। उन्होंने कहा कि कांग्रेस की सरकार ने मेवात क्षेत्र में पेयजल किल्लत दूर करने को सबसे अधिक प्राथमिकता दी है। मेवात से कांग्रेस का रिश्ता बहुत पुराना है। आजादी के समय से ही कांग्रेस मेवात के विकास को लेकर गंभीर रही है। उन्होंने कहा कि पांच साल पहले हरियाणा की आर्थिक स्थिति बिल्कुल चरमरा गई थी और पूरे प्रदेश में राजनीतिक अराजकता का माहौल था, लेकिन कांग्रेस की सरकार बनने के बाद प्रदेश की आर्थिक संपन्नता किसी से छुपी हुई नहीं है। केंद्र की यूपीए सरकार और हरियाणा की कांग्रेस सरकार की सूझबूझ से हर तबका लाभान्वित हुआ है।

यूपीए अध्यक्ष ने कहा कि मेवात के हिंदू-मुस्लिम भाईचारे की मिसाल पूरे देश में मशहूर है। उन्होंने उम्मीद जताई कि आने वाले दिनों में मेवात के लोगों की परेशानी कांग्रेस सरकार के प्रयास से दिन प्रतिदिन कम होती जाएगी। उन्होंने कहा कि राजीव गांधी पेयजल परियोजना से मेवात के अधिकतर गांवों की प्यास बुझाने में कामयाबी मिलेगी।

सोनिया ने कहा कि जिन राज्यों में कांग्रेस की सरकार है, उन राज्यों की सरकार की यही कोशिश रही है कि राज्य के प्रत्येक नागरिक सरकारी सुविधाओं से लाभान्वित हो। उन्होंने मेवात की जनता से इशारे में वोट भी मांगी और कहा कि विश्वास है, वक्त आने पर आप सही फैसला लेंगे। उन्होंने कहा कि भारत को विकसित देश बनाने के लिए कांग्रेस का हाथ मजबूत करना जरूरी है।

राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष ने कांग्रेस कार्यकर्ताओं को नसीहत देते हुए कहा कि नेहरू जी कहा करते थे कि आराम हराम है। कांग्रेस भी इसी रास्ते पर चलती है। उन्होंने कार्यकर्ताओं को हमेशा सक्रिय रहने और दिन-रात मेहनत करने की सलाह दी।

मुख्यमंत्री भूपेंद्र सिंह हुड्डा ने मेवात में सिंचाई व्यवस्था को दुरुस्त करने के लिए 326 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से मेवात नहर के निर्माण की घोषणा की। उन्होंने कहा कि नहर बनाने का प्रस्ताव केंद्र सरकार को भेजा गया है। यमुना पर बैराज बनाने की कोशिश भी जारी है। बैराज का निर्माण होते ही सिंचाई के लिए आगरा नहर में स्वच्छ पानी उपलब्ध होने लगेगा।

जनसभा में केंद्रीय मंत्री पृथ्वीराज चौहान व राव इंद्रजीत, हरियाणा के बिजली मंत्री रणदीप सुरजेवाला, सांसद अवतार भड़ाना, कांग्रेस प्रदेश अध्यक्ष फूलचंद मुलाना, विधानसभा उपाध्यक्ष आजाद मोहम्मद, विधायक हबीबुर्ररहमान सहित अन्य लोग मौजूद थे।

UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi launched a spirited election campaign in Haryana on Sunday. She addressed two well-attended rallies in Mewat and Jind districts, inaugurated the first phase of a major drinking water project at Kondal village and laid the foundation stone for a women’s medical college in Sonepat.

“Our work is before you and so are the hollow slogans and promises of our opponents,” she said at her rally in Kondal village in Mewat district, 90 km from Faridabad. “We hope that you will take the right decision when election time comes.”

“No country or society can progress unless every citizen is involved in the partnership for development. Unfortunately, in our country, there are some people who are trying to divide our society for their political purpose,” she added.

Repeatedly referring to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Sonia sent out the clear message that he would lead the country again if the UPA is voted back to power. She stressed the UPA government’s concern for the minorities and the poor.

“We took the historic step of waiving loans for farmers,” she said.

Addressing another rally at Uchana in Jind district Sonia referred to the Mumbai terror attacks and reiterated that India’s patience should not be mistaken for weakness.

“We have the capacity to give a fitting reply to the forces behind such actions,” she said.

She noted that several youth from Haryana had been part of the commando unit that took on the Mumbai terrorists.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who also attended the rally, assured the Congress president that all the 10 Lok Sabha seats from Haryana would go to the party.
