Chandigarh- Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday launched water and journey sports activities actions on the Hathni Kund barrage, which will probably be named after former Prime Minister late Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Speaking on the event, the Chief Minister stated the tourism sector within the state has been accelerating at a quick tempo. “Tourism is an industry that attracts people from all over the world. Wherever tourism has flourished, there has been an evident development of the region.”
The Chief Minister highlighted the importance of the Hathini Kund challenge.
“Initially, Taje Wala head was constructed that was relatively smaller. Subsequently, the Hathini Kund barrage was constructed. Due to the scarcity of water, a 50-m high dam will be built in Kalesar. This dam will directly benefit people from Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh. It can also generate electricity. Rajasthan and Delhi are also expected to benefit from this project, ” he added.
