DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - INDI - —Agen­cies

New Delhi: Haryana is ready for si­mul­ta­ne­ous elec­tions to the Assem­bly and Lok Sabha if the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (EC) de­cides to do so, Chief Min­is­ter Manohar Lal Khat­tar said on Sat­ur­day and added he was in favour of such a move.

Khat­tar un­der­lined that it was the pre­rog­a­tive of the poll panel when and how to con­duct elec­tions.

Khat­tar said the BJP-led dis­pen­sa­tion pro­vided a “graft-free and trans­par­ent”

ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“We en­sured that gov­ern­ment jobs were given on merit, started a new trans­fer pol­icy for all gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees whereby most of them were posted as per their pref­er­ences,” he said.

List­ing the achieve­ments

of his gov­ern­ment, Khat­tar said the pace of growth of the state would fur­ther ex­pe­dite in the fifth year of his ten­ure.

He said he favoured si­mul­ta­ne­ous polls as it would be ben­e­fi­cial for the coun­try and hoped that by 2024 this could be done.
