Himachal Pradesh moving towards development- Sukhu
Sukhu has said that our government’s plan is to change people’s thinking. Sukhu has said that we had announced to implement 10 guarantees. I have implemented OPS in it. Currently about 800 people are getting this facility. Earlier these people used to get Rs 2700, now they are getting Rs 27 thousand. It is my job to honor those who worked to build Himachal Pradesh.
After becoming CM, I am fighting challenges- Sukhu
Himachal Pradesh: On July 7 last year, a terrible tragedy occurred in Himachal. Kullu was cut off from the entire country. I want to thank that we evacuated 75 thousand people stranded in Kullu districts. 15 thousand vehicles were taken out. The hotel owners let the guest leave without any money. Two of my ministers went in a JCB and saved the tourists.
On the question of Ram temple, it has been said that who does not visit Ram temple…Ram is adorable. Ram issue should not be made. The central government had given half a day’s leave, I gave the whole day’s leave. The country will have to think that Ram’s issue should be made…it should be decided by the public…the issue should be made according to the circumstances.
On the question of resentment in Himachal government, Sukhu said that there is no resentment in Himachal Pradesh government. Which the high command decides. Everyone believes. Also, whoever has the majority remains in power. We are strengthening every sector starting from infrastructure. Lands slide in the mountains. Connecting all the helipads. You will reach Shimla from Chandigarh in 18 minutes. All the districts will now be connected to Shimla. Mango, orange, apple all will be available in Himachal Pradesh. We are the lungs of North India.
We are developing 500 lakes in Himachal Pradesh. Big hotel industries have started coming up in Himachal Pradesh. In the coming time, there will be more tourism in Himachal Pradesh than in Goa. Himachal is going to have its day as a tourist destination.
