This shows the swift pace of work being undertaken on the development policy to make Uttarakhand a leading State. The projects launched in the programme today include those related to roads, health, drinking water, irrigation, housing and rural development which will improve the present. Further, development works related to big educational institutions, polytechnic colleges, sports stadium, energy, dairy and tourism will help make Uttarakhand capable, strong and self-reliant in the future,” the CM said.

A work plan is also being prepared on which best practices and innovations can be undertaken in every district by 2025. “Our government is the first to pass the Uniform Civil Code bill in the State. Its implementation will provide relief from various types of exploitation especially to our Muslim sisters and daughters. A lot of Muslim women thank me for this step, like a group of Muslim women who thanked the government at a programme in Udham Singh Nagar recently for passing the UCC bill. We have also undertaken a campaign against land jihad and freed more than 5,000 acre government land from illegal constructions and encroachment. Maintaining law and order is as important as facilitating development. We have given full freedom to the police and administration to take strict action against any person trying to spread disturbance in the State. One by one, the police have identified and arrested those involved in the recent violence and arson in Vanbhulpura area. We have also brought a law under which rioters will have to pay for the damage they cause,” Dhami added. Cabinet ministers Dhan Singh Rawat, Prem Chand Aggarwal, public representatives and beneficiaries of various government schemes were also present on the occasion.
