PTI | Kaithal | Oct 12, 2015:: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that development of all pilgrimage sites located within a radius of 48 km of Kurukshetra would be carried out.
These would include Pandu Pindara of Jind and all pilgrimage sites of Kaithal, he said adding that possibilities of bringing Phalgu Tirath under the jurisdiction of Kurukshetra Development Board would also be explored.
He offered prayers during the fair organised at the famous Phalgu Tirath, village Pharal, in district Kaithal on Sunday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that to facilitate the pilgrims who come to the fair, the Dhand-Pundri road would be widened to 10 meters at a cost of Rs. 3 crore and central divider would be constructed and lights installed.
Additionally, the Kaithal-Kurukshetra road and all roads connecting other districts across the State would be widened to 10 metres.
He said that the Government had given a sum of Rs. 4.26 crore for the development of Phalgu Tirath and restoration work would start soon.
A sum of Rs. 54 lakh is also available for the fair, which would be used for development works. The entire earning from the fair would be used to develop the streets of village Pharal and Phalgu Tirath, he added.
