CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Government has decided to give 15 days' paternity leave to all male government employees for taking care of the newly-born.
It has also been decided to increase the strength of women's police force from 11 to 20 per cent.
Disclosing this while interacting with the employees recruited in the Police, Education and other departments in Rohtak on Sunday, Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, said due to court cases about 13,000 recruitments were held up in the education, power and other departments.
These cases would be pleaded appropriately by the state government to get justice to the youth of the state.
Earlier, while talking to the newsmen, Mr Manohar Lal referred to the opposition ganging up together against the Prime Minister and said, "Since none is able to stand in front of him, they have got together on one platform which is not the right way to exhibit strength."
Answering a question about the gathering of all opposition parties in Karnataka on one platform, he said all parties, including Congress, INLD, Aam Aadmi Party, Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav assembled on one platform, but this did not prove their togetherness.
These parties can stand on one stage together but time will tell how and what they can do in their own states.
The Chief Minister said his government had done lot of work for the benefit of the people during its three-and-a-half-year tenure.
"What other governments could not do in the last 48 years, we have done in three-and-a-half years.
We have brought about change in the lifestyle of people and worked for their betterment.
All government facilities have been brought under one roof.
Haryana today ranks number one in Ease of Doing Business; it was 14th in 2014", he added.
