The chief minister thanked the Kharkhari gramme panchayat for donating 120 acres of land for the Regional Research Centre, which will cost around Rs 39 crore to construct. He stated that the centre will be completed in two years and will conduct research on all aspects of horticulture production.

Khattar stated that this centre will provide farmers with high-quality plants and seeds. He stated that the Lala Lajpat Rai Veterinary and Animal Sciences University's Haryana Animal Science Centre, Bahal, will be built on nine acres of land at a cost of around Rs nine crore. It will be completed in two years.

According to Khattar, the main goal of establishing this centre is to provide timely diagnosis and treatment to animals suffering from various ailments. Khattar stated that the state's agriculture sector is being pushed to new heights by the BJP-led government.

According to him, horticulture crops currently account for about 7% of Haryana's total cropped area. "Our goal is to increase this to 15% by 2030." To promote horticulture, we have established 14 centres of excellence that showcase the most cutting-edge technologies in the industry. These centres have received over Rs 100 crore in investment," Khattar added.
