Chandigarh: Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki on Tuesday said the new government in Haryana will work for the rejuvenation of the state's economy without putting any burden on the common man.
He said the trend of populist decisions would be reversed.
"We will reverse the legacy of the past that preferred 'populism' at the cost of 'realism'.
"Plans will be prepared for rejuvenation of the economy of the state with equitable distribution of resources for long-term sustained development," Solanki said in his first address to the newly constituted Haryana Assembly.
"The government stands committed to reviewing and streamlining the inefficient financial management which led to a severe strain on the public exchequer."
"Further, efforts will be made to raise resources without putting any burden on the common man," Solanki said, highlighting the plans and vision of the new Manohar Lal Khattar government of the BJP in the state.
He said the new government was committed to all-round development of all parts of the state, gainful employment for the youth, transparent and graft-free administration and steps to check the legacy of opaque decision-making and iniquitous distribution of resources.
He said the government would initiate steps in the industrial and agriculture sectors to create more jobs and boost business environment.
"The government shall make utmost efforts to curtail wasteful and unproductive expenditure, rationalise public sector undertakings, boards and corporations and proliferation of commissions and regulators," he said.
He added that the government would not be satisfied with "poverty alleviation", but would commit itself to the goal of poverty elimination.
