Gurgaon, July 7 (IANS) Union Minister Rao Inderjit Singh on Thursday said two-bit politicians and bureaucrats in Haryana were taking developmental decisions that had proved unfruitful.
The situation in Haryana had not changed much even though the Bharatiya Janata Party was in power in the state, the BJP parliamentarian from Gurgaon said.
He said he had advocated the setting up of a Gurgaon Development Authority (GDA) a few years ago for faster development of the millennium city, but his suggestion was sabotaged by the then Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda by forming the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon.
The new Minister of State for Planning (Independent Charge) was addressing a seminar organised by the Haryana Institute Public Administration here.
He said Gurgaon needed the GDA for development or else a National Capital Region Development Authority could be planned and Faridabad, Mewat, Rewari, Mahendergarh, Rohtak and Jhajjar along with Gurgaon included in it.
