Jharkhand Haj House

Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Tuesday inaugurated the Rs 55 crore Haj House in Ranchi, on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr.

The five-storeyed Haj House is constructed according to Mughal architecture. Around 1,000 people can offer Namaz.

It consists of a prayer room, Visa room, kitchen and VIP room. A total of 150 men and 80 women can stay at a time. It is centrally air-conditioned.

The Chief Minister had laid the foundation stone for the building two years ago.

"Secularism is in our blood. There is no need to teach us secularism. In the last 70 years, the successive governments have created a fear among minorities. Minorities were treated as vote bank", the Chief Minister said while talking to reporters after the inauguration.

"But the present Jharkhand and Central governments believe in the 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas' theory. There is a need to change the mindset of the minority community people and they should take benefit of government schemes", he added.

The earlier Haj House was constructed at the same place at a cost of Rs 5.50 crore.
