"Contrary to the Congress leader allegations, the present state government led by Chief Minister Manohar Lal has been promoting woman empowerment through various schemes. On the other hand, politically motivated false statements only hurt the cause of this important national program", it said.

The spokesman further stated "the correct factual position is that the Haryana government had signed an MOU with Parineeti Chopra in May 2016 for the duration of one-year that lasted up to April 2017.

Thereafter the Memorandum of Understanding was never renewed."
