CM Khattar adopts five patients suffering from TB disease, also provided TB kit to them

Friday, 03 February 2023 | PNS | Chandigarh

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday adopted five TB patients and provided TB kits to them under Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyaan.


“Health Department is working hard to eliminate tuberculosis in the state five years before the deadline of 2030, thanks to the resolve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he added.


By making these significant efforts, Haryana will accomplish its goal of being TB-free by 2025. Khattar urged the industrialists, administrative officers, educational institutions, social organizations, non-governmental organizations, and elected representatives of the State to join this cause and adopt TB patients and provide nutrition, emotional and social support to their families.


No Child to be Deprived of the Opportunity for Growth

Stating that no child would be deprived of the opportunity for growth, Khattar said that our house and family are one and we should work with this spirit. Interacting with the children in the meeting organized under Harihar Policy, Khattar said that if any child has any problem or need, the doors of his house are always open for all. Such children in the society, whose parents have left or abandoned, shall be nurtured and connected to the mainstream in child care institutions under the Harihar policy.


E-Tendering Proven to be an Effective Step

Khattar said that the e-tendering system has been introduced to ensure timely completion of work in a transparent manner. So far, e-tenders have been received from new Panchayats for about 650 works, said Khattar while addressing a press conference after the State Cabinet meeting. The Chief Minister said that the process of approval of e-tender has been simplified. Now, for works below Rs 10 crore, slab-wise approval powers have been allocated at SDO, XEN, and Chief Engineer and Minister level.
