Bric a Brac : Kingdom of cheats!

tarnishing the golden jubilee?

kingdom-of-cheatsAfew days ago, the Haryana government held the Golden Jubilee’s logo release function at Gurugram with great pomp and show. The state government was in such a hurry that it even did not check the antecedents of Kingdom of Dreams, Gurugram, where the logo was unveiled. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will formally launch the celebrations on November 1, 2016 on 50 years of Haryana Formation Day at Gurugram. However, it is reported that Gurugram’s most popular attraction, Kingdom of Dreams is facing heat from the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) for non-payment of lease fees approximately worth more than Rs 30 crore over the past four years. Nobody knows who suggested that the festivities be organised at Kingdom of Dreams. Surprisingly, the State Department of Sports is the nodal agency for organising the Golden Jubilee Celebrations but the Minister Anil Vij came to know about the celebrations on the same day and did not attend the function. The logo unveiling was fabulous but the management of the function was pathetic. Though guests were requested to join for lunch but after the entry of the Chief Minister and other dignitaries in the lunch area, there was utter chaos. The private bouncers of the Kingdom of Dreams started checking for the invitation card which most of the guests did not carry. Gurugram SDM Sushil Sarwan was himself clearing the entry of some dignitaries. The Kingdom of Dreams project was started during the Bhupinder Singh Hooda regime. Objections were raised at that time also, on how and why the land had been allotted on such nominal rates. After the Manohar Lal Khattar government came to power, the demand for an enquiry has been raised again.
