Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that farmers would be compensated by conducting special girdawari in places where extensive damage of crops has occurred due to excessive rainfall.
The Chief Minister while talking to the mediapersons on the sidelines of a programme in Yamunanagar said that it had rained all over the state in the past few days. The rainfall has been actually good for the crops and the loss has been less, but still, if there has been damage due to excessive rain, compensation will be given by getting girdawari done there. The loss to the farmers will be compensated, he said.
Earlier, the Chief Minister addressed a gathering at the foundation stone laying ceremony of Samrat Mihir Bhoj Gurukul Vidyapeeth at Jagadhri in Yamunanagar. He announced a matching grant of Rs 1 crore, government assistance of Rs 51 lakh and Rs 2 lakh from his voluntary fund to Gurukul Educational Institute.
Khattar said that Gurukul is an ancient system, where students give Dakshina to the Guru after receiving their education and the spirit of reverence prevails in Gurukuls even today. The entire society and the world is associated with Gurukul education, which makes us civilized.
The Chief Minister exhorted the people to maintain brotherhood to eliminate social evils and protect the country and society.
He said that King Mihir Bhoj did great things to protect the traditions of the country. It is an important task to open educational institutions with values in his name. Such institutions help inculcate cultural values in the youth, he added.
Taking important steps, Haryana Government has taken up the work of including moral education, education of scriptures and Gita shloka in the educational curriculum, he said. Khattar further said that great men do not belong to a particular section of the society and they are an inspiration to everyone hence students of all religions, castes and classes will study in this Gurukul. In this institution, education from classes VI to XII will be imparted to boys. Apart from the ancient education system, students studying here will be able to study on the lines of the CBSE pattern, he said
On the occasion, Education Minister Kanwar Pal and MP Rattan Lal Kataria also announced Rs 31 lakh and Rs 11 lakh respectively for the Gurukul.
