Nothing special about CM’s adopted village 9.7.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Kaithal, July 8 It’s a tale of adoption gone horribly wrong. Slushy roads, dug up streets leading to nowhere, irregular power supply and projects in a limbo. Four years down the line, Keorak village, adopted by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on assuming office, is struggling with these issues, and much more. With residents floundering in the slush covering the lanes, the CM’s popularity seems on a slippery wicket. And the seasonal rains have made matters only worse. “A road leading to the town is submerged in knee-deep water whenever it rains. On other days, the slush makes the road accident-prone. We wish the village had never been adopted,” says Rajinder, a farmer. A sewer project is far from completion, eight months after it was started. Work is yet to begin on a sewage treatment plant and several other development works announced by the CM are still in the pipeline. Worse, to get faulty power lines repaired, village residents, led by sarpanch Balkar Arya, have had to ...
