Rudraprayag and Bageshwar district have achieved the target of administering 100 per cent first dose, he added.

Since I was given the responsibility as CM, various decisions have been taken in the state’s interests.Special focus is being laid on employment and self-employment while schemes are being implemented while taking every section of society into consideration.
