Haryana CM announces extension of Delhi Metro upto Jhajjar town

Jhajjar: Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today announced the extension of the Delhi Metro up to Jhajjar town. He made this announcement while addressing a gathering at the state-level ‘Kisan Sammelan’ organised on the campus of Government Polytechnic Institute here today.

He, however, did not say anything about any communication with the Metro authorities regarding the plan. “Apart from lying the Rohtak-Jhajjar-Rewari railway track and AIIMS-II, Rs 3,135 crore has so far been spent on the overall development of Jhajjar district which is earlier considered to be a backward one. Now, I wish to bring Metro up to Jhajjar town,” Hooda said.

He claimed that Jhajjar would be developed on the lines of Gurgaon during the next five years. “I intend to bring the blue water of Bhakra to this area, which has been stalled by the opposition party in the court in connivance with Punjab. I am hopeful that the stay will be cleared soon and this area will also get Bhakra water,” Hooda said.
