To mark one year as the MLA of Champawat, chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami launched development works worth Rs 50.54 crore in Champawat on Saturday. Reiterating the government’s commitment for development of Champawat and the State, he also made 14 announcements in public interest on the occasion. The development works he launched on the occasion include three schemes worth Rs 9.82 crore for Champawat constituency which he inaugurated and 28 schemes worth Rs 23.45 crore for which he unveiled the foundation stones. The schemes also include 10 schemes worth Rs 16.81 crore for Lohaghat constituency for which the foundation stones were unveiled and one scheme worth Rs 45 lakh which was inaugurated. A two-minute silence was observed to pay homage to victims of the Odisha railway mishap and on Dhami’s instructions, all cultural programmes and the road show slated to be held on the occasion were cancelled.

Addressing the gathering on the occasion, he thanked the people of Champawat for electing him as their representative. He said that the State government has laid a strong foundation for the integrated development of Uttarakhand and making Champawat an ideal district. The completion of the various departmental schemes launched will take the area into a new era, he said. Dhami said that the last Vidhan Sabha election was historic in many ways because it was the first time when the people had reelected a political party to office for a second consecutive term in Uttarakhand. He said that his victory in the Champawat bypoll was not his but a victory of the State’s people and the dreams of development they had seen. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, the State government is working diligently to ensure that Champawat district moves ahead in education, health, horticulture, agriculture, tourism and other sectors by the time Uttarakhand marks the 25th anniversary of its creation. Efforts are being undertaken to facilitate road to every village, health, education and communication facilities across the district for which various schemes are being prepared according to the geographical conditions and being implemented on the ground. The chief minister’s camp office has also been established in Champawat to ensure swift redressal of the issues of the locals, the CM said. “During this one year we faced various hurdles but the State government overcame these hurdles and will continue to work in the interests of the State and its people. In the past few years, the Central government has approved various important projects for Uttarakhand and some of these are also nearing completion. Our attempt is to include the thoughts and requirements of the whole society and all its sections while drafting a policy because we have to develop the best model which the other Himalayan States also adopt in the future,” Dhami said.

The CM also talked about his commitment to developing a new work culture and establishing good governance in the State. The government is moving ahead with the mantra of ‘resolve without alternative’ to make Uttarakhand one of the best India States, he said. Various public representatives and locals were present on the occasion. Earlier, the CM paid obeisance at the Goljyu Devta temple and prayed for the welfare of the State.
