Thursday, 15 August 2019 | PNS | Dehradun

Governor Baby Rani Maurya and chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat wished the people on the eve of the 72nd anniversary of the Independence Day. In his message to the people, the CM assured the people that the state government remains committed to ensuring all round development and eradicating corruption. A strict law against corruption would be brought soon, he said.

Rawat said that Independence Day this year is special as the people of Jammu and Kashmir have been freed from Article 370. Thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home minister Amit Shah on behalf of the people of Uttarakhand, he said that now the people of Jammu and Kashmir will be mainstreamed and achieve new heights of development.

Rawat averred that the State Government is about to bring a strict law against corruption. Government employees indulging in corruption and negligent towards their work will be identified and given compulsory retirement. The CM dashboard ‘Utkarsh’ has been formed to ensure outcome based delivery in government departments. The CM helpline 1905 is also being operated to receive public grievances so that people can lodge their complaints conveniently. The CM said that with the help of the Centre, the State Government is undertaking considerable work to enhance connectivity. Work is underway on the all-weather road and Bharatmala project. In Dehradun, the two-lane tunnel near Dat Kali temple, railway over bridges at Mohkampur and Ajabpur along with Dausani in Haridwar were constructed before the deadline. Construction of the Dobra-Chanthi bridge in Tehri district will be completed by March 2020. Further, work has also been started on the ambitious Rishikesh-Karnprayag rail project. The Devband-Roorkee rail line will also boost development in the state. The Naini-Doon Jan Shatabdi Express has been started between Dehradun and Kathgodam. Additionally, 13 heliports are being developed in the state and the Dehradun airport is being developed to international standards. Dehradun is now connected by air to 23 Indian cities. Rawat said that top priority has been accorded to employment for the youth. For this, attempts are being made to make the schools ‘smart’ to facilitate quality education. Ten per cent reservation for economically weaker members of the general category has also been facilitated in the state. During the term of the current government, more than 11,000 enterprises have been set up which have provided employment to about 80,000 people. In 10 months of the investors summit, the grounding of more than Rs 16,000 crore investment has been achieved which will provided employment to about 40,000 people. The CM also referred to the improvement in health indicators, steps being taken to strengthen rural economy, efforts for improving agriculture and condition of farmers, the State Government’s focus on clean energy and efforts for water conservation, while stressing that along with the income index, the happiness index is also important.
