Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said an Army recruitment sub-centre will be opened in Rewari.

Addressing ‘Shaheed Samman Rally’ organised by Union Minister of State for Urban Housing, Planning and Poverty Alleviation Rao Inderjit Singh, at local HUDA grounds here, Singh said countrymen should contribute to make a strong, proud and independent India.

Apart from Rajnath and Inderjit Singh, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar also attended the function.

The speakers paid rich tributes to the martyrs right from the freedom struggle to present times, including Rao Raja Tula Ram and the 5,000 martyrs who laid their lives on November 16, 1857 at village Nasirpur, near Narnaul in Mahendergarh district.

Stressing that owing to the sacrifice of martyrs, India got independence politically in 1947 but social and economic freedom remained dreams to be attained, Rajnath said, the present BJP government at the Centre was making all efforts to achieve both the freedoms, for which the people will have to shun their differences on grounds of religion, caste, untouchability or region.

Economic freedom can be achieved by providing employment opportunities to unemployed youth, for which the government has started number of programme to make the youth “able”, he said.

The Union Home minister said the gap of economic disparity should be minimised, for which the government has demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

“This could cause problems for the people for some time, may be for a month, but it will be helpful in bringing purity (Pavitrata) in politics,” he said.

Criticising the practice of distribution of money and liquor during elections, Singh said “this practice should go and if any political party collected donations, it should also be accounted for.”

“We are here to provide the type of governance, the people want. There will be no place for corruption. Government is working on it and this will have effect on the working of government machinery, they will also refrain from adopting corrupt practices.”

He said real India lives in villages and the country could not progress till our farmers progress.

The government introduced Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna so that loss caused to farmers due to natural calamities can be reimbursed, he added.

Rajnath said the government was working with an aim to double the income of farmers by 2022.
