The state administration has started a drive to find a suitable place for the proposed Sainya Dham.
In sync with the Sainya-Dham notion mooted by the Prime Minister (PM) , Narendra Modi, Uttarakhand government has started deliberations for construction of a mega Sainya Dham in the provisional state capital. The state administration has started a drive to find a suitable place for the proposed Sainya Dham. The additional secretary, Sainik Kalyan, Pradeep Singh Rawat told The Pioneer that efforts are being made to find 35-40 Bigha of land for the Sainya Dham in and around Dehradun. He however added that the land has not yet been finalised. It is learnt that the proposed Sainik Dham in Dehradun would be built on the lines of the ‘National War Memorial’ at New Delhi. The place would have a museum highlighting the sacrifices done by the martyred soldiers. The Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has made it clear that the proposed Dham should be a majestic structure. He wants that the proposed place completely digital where information about every martyr can be obtained with click of a mouse. The concept of Sainya Dham was mooted by PM Modi during his public meeting at Rudrapur last year. At that he had said that since every second family of Uttarakhand is associated with armed forces, the state has a fifth Dham which is Saniya Dham.
Uttarakhand has rich tradition of sending its youth to serve in the armed forces of the country. A rough estimate put the number of armed forces veterans and Veer Naris (widows of armed forces personnel) at 1.70 lakhs . The state is home to about thirty thousand retired paramilitary forces personnel. Similarly an estimated 1.50 lakh personnel belonging to the state are serving in different wings of armed forces of the country.
The inclination to serve in armed forces of the country is so high in this predominately mountainous state that almost every family has someone who is in armed forces. The ex -servicemen, the serving armed forces personnel and their families also create a formidable political force in the state. Considering this in mind, the state government is moving ahead on the concept of Sainya Dham.
