Each village of Haryana will soon have its own secretariat which will ensure people get better access to various government schemes, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Sunday as he inaugurated the State’s first ‘village secretariat’ in Jind’s Haibatpur village.
He said the inauguration of the village secretariat in Haibatpur is the first step in this direction.
