Himalayan States to deliberate on contribution to New India- CM
In the Himalayan Conclave to be held in Mussoorie on July 28, the representatives of all Himalayan States will share their experiences, said Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat. How the Himalayan states can contribute to the making of new India will also be deliberated upon.
Interacting informally with the media persons here on Friday, the chief minister said that the condition of various Himalayan states is basically similar. Delegates participating in the conclave will deliberate on how to facilitate development of mountainous regions while also conserving the environment. A draft of the conclusions arrived at in the conclave will be submitted to the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog.
Responding to media queries, Rawat said that he had directed the chief secretary to review the execution of the decisions taken by the State cabinet. He said, “During the term of our government so far, action has been taken on almost all decisions taken by the cabinet. Time bound action on 100 per cent of the decisions taken by the cabinet should be ensured. For this, the chief secretary has been told to consistently monitor the action taken on the decisions taken by the cabinet,” said the chief minister. Regarding the news about not a single girl being born among the 216 babies delivered during past three months in 133 villages of Uttarkashi district, he said that officials have been directed to ascertain the actual situation. Stating that the figures are alarming, the chief minister said that this is also a matter of concern for the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign.
