On road development projects, he said, "Like we have arteries in our bodies, we have roads in our country and they act as arteries. When the road network improves,development also increases. We can't do with infrastructure of last century. A contractor comes and builds a road which gets destroyed in monsoon. We can't work like this. The chance of development increases in the nation that gives impetus to infrastructure, be it roads, rail or airpot. If the road network increases the avenues of development also increase."
"Connecting Haryana to Rajasthan is not only about cars passing one way from the other. It is good for commerce, he stated.

"Some Central schemes that had to be completed have not yet completed, but I assure that we will try to ensure they are completed," he promised.
"Be it the State or Central Government, let us work together for the development of Haryana," he added.
