- HT Correspond­ent letters@hindustant­imes.com

KAITHAL: Businessma­n-turnedpoli­tician and independen­t Rajya Sabha MP Subhash Chandra has held previous state government­s in Haryana responsibl­e for doing little to ward off unemployme­nt issues and debt burden on farmers.

“Whenever I visit rural parts of Haryana, I see rising cases of unemployme­nt and debt-ridden farmers. Our state government­s have failed to deal with these problems,” Chandra said, while addressing his maiden public rally, organised by local leader Paras Mittal and other MLAs to felicitate him for his election to the Upper House.

Chandra said a textile industry is need of the hour for Jind region as it will not just help the farmers get remunerati­ve prices for their produce but will also create jobs for the youths.

“I assure you that I will fight for your cause. In the next six years, Haryana’s GDP will double and we will generate 5 lakh jobs, besides providing basic amenities to the villages,” he added, without mentioning that whether he will join the BJP or not.

Several local MLAs including BJP’s Kurukshetr­a MLA Subhash Sudha, Independen­t MLA from Pundri Dinesh Kaushik, Independen­t MLA from Kalayat Jai Parkash and Independen­t MLA from Safidon Jasbir Deswa were also present.

All MLAs have extended their support to Chandra and said that they will continue to work for the developmen­t of the state.
