Gairsain notification Cong terms it ploy to divert focus from Covid-19 failure
Reacting to the state government’s notification on granting summer capital status to Gairsain in Chamoli district, the Uttarakhand Congress party has termed it as an effort to divert attention from Covid-19 pandemic.
The vice president of Uttarakhand Congress, Surya Kant Dhasmana said that the state government has failed miserably in controlling the contagion of Covid-19 and in such a situation it has retorted to gimmick of notification on Gairsain. He said that the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) President Pritam Singh has already cleared the stand of the Congress party on the issue. Dhasmana said that the state government should clarify as to what is the permanent capital of Uttarakhand and then explain the rationale behind having two temporary capitals of the state.
The Congress leader said that aspirations of people of all three regions of state, Garhwal, Kumaon and Tarai are deeply associated with Gairsain and it was the symbol of unity and consensus during the statehood movement. He said that keeping the aspirations of people and importance of Gairsain in mind, the Congress government organised a cabinet meeting in tents in Gairsain in the year 2012 and followed it up with an assembly session there. “It was the Congress party which started work on construction of Vidhan Sabha building and secretariat, The BJP government should tell people of Uttarakhand- whether a single brick was placed in Gairsain during three years of its rule? The behaviour of BJP is childish in staking its claim on works of Congress. It was the Congress party which initiated the process on Gairsain and the task would be accomplished by the Congress alone,’’ he said.
