Gurgaon, March 8 (IANS) Union Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh on Tuesday said ‘losers and miscreants’ tried to disturb the communal harmony among the people of the state during the Jat quota stir.
The minister said political losers indulged in violence in specific districts of the state where opposition parties had considerable influence.
He said the state government had done wonderful work and had gained the faith of investors in Haryana, who signed memorandums of understanding of nearly Rs.6 lakh crore.
The minister was speaking on the second day of the two-day ‘Happening Haryana Global Investors Summit-2016’ in Gurgaon.
He said every investor wanted safe and peaceful atmosphere to establish their business and that is why the industry captains were preferring south Haryana.
Rao, who is the local MP, said investors have been choosing Gurgaon because people here were law-abiding and helped developed Gurgaon as a Millennium City.
He said that a total of 357 MoUs were signed, including 250 in which investors desired to invest in Gurgaon.
Rao said employments must be provided to local youths whose ancestral lands were acquired by the government for industries.
He also stressed the need to develop infrastructure, specially water, transport and communication, to facilitate more MoUs.
