The Cabinet decided to stop all the ongoing recruitments with immediate effect, the CM said. All the re-employment made during the regime of previous government would be re-examined. “I have asked the officials to prepare a list of such re-employment so as to take follow-up action at the next Cabinet meeting,” he added. 

The Cabinet also decided to review the complaints on paddy procurement, Khattar said, adding that action in this regard would be taken in the next Cabinet meeting. 

To a question, the CM said newly-inducted ministers would be given portfolios soon.

He also struck a non-committal stand on initiating a probe into the controversial DLF-Vadra land deal.
