service beyond self for vipul goel in haryana

Minister of Industries and CommerceHARYANA Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s cabinet ministers are full of enthusiasm and inspiration. At times they appear to be completely devoted to the Chief Minister and at other times, they take independent decisions which baffle the top BJP leadership. Haryana politics is full of intrigue. Further, most of the Haryana MLAs and ministers are known for scheming against their own Chief Ministers. Khattar is not an exception and is feeling the pulls and pressures not only from his rivals but from his colleagues. But Vipul Goel, Minister of Industries and Commerce, appears to be an exception. Goel has risen in state politics from the ranks and has seen poverty in the family. Grooming by the RSS parivar has nurtured the missionary in him. It is rare in Haryana where a minister appears to be far above any form of greed. This was evident when Goel auctioned gifts and mementos received by him during his tenure as a Minister to contribute to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. He has planned to donate the Rs 2.5 crore collection for the welfare of poor and needy. He said he was motivated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had auctioned 460 gifts for the Namami Gange Project. Goel is credited with setting up the tallest tricolor in Faridabad, planting two and a half lakh saplings in three hours during the Harit Haryana campaign, running Project Panchhi for providing shelter, water to birds, digital rallies (addressing people at different locations with latest technology) and Sadmadhaan Diwas (camps for grievance redressal).
