CM dedicates projects worth more than 50 crores in Haroli constituency

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh while addressing a mammoth public meeting at Bathu in Haroli assembly segment of Una district today said that though many big industrial houses were coming up in the State but main-stay of the economy of the people comes from agriculture and similar allied sectors. As much of the population of the State was residing in villages, the people were more dependent upon cultivating crops said he adding that many were now in the business of producing off-season vegetables and fruits which yields them good profits. He said that the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors, which were the backbone of the economy of the hill people needs to be strengthened more.

Referring to Haroli assembly segment, the Chief Minister said that it has witnessed massive development due to hard-work of its MLA. “It is not like the development was being carried out in Haroli alone but the Government was equally concerned about all the regions of the State”, he said adding our State should be cited elsewhere as a new model of development in the country.

He said that much more is required to be done in the field of development and the participation and co-operation of the people is must. It is wrong to say that the State Government was giving added attention to the Haroli as being claimed by the opposition, he said adding that the Government was endeavouring to equally develop all regions of the State irrespective of region and religion.

“We don’t create divide amongst the people on the issues of development” he added and cautioned few bent upon to carve up the differences and misguide the people.

More projects were coming up in the State and the Government had taken up the major Swan River project and will finish the work successfully in a time bound manner. He said that all 73 tributaries of the Swan were also being channelized. “In India, Swan was only such a project where not only the main river but also the tributaries of the main river were also being channelized”, he said.

Later, the Chief Minister inaugurated Rs. 27 crore, 132 KV Sub-Station at Bathu which will improve the low voltage problem of the area and also the transmission and distribution losses would be reduced to the minimum. Not only this, the industrial belts of Tahliwal and Santoshgarh, Gurplah, Gondpur, Pubowal, Kuthar, Dulehar, Laleri and in the periphery would be benefited from this.

covid-19 in himachal pradesh igmc beds full

Shimla– Amid the festive season, Himachal Pradesh is witnessing an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases and fatalities. As a matter of huge concern, the Indira Gandhi Medical College & Hospital, Shimla, has run out of beds in isolation facility and can’t accommodate more patient, unless someone is discharged or dies. There was space for only 85 patients at the hospital, which is full presently.

The DDU hospital, too, is running out of capacity with a surge in cases. Further, make-shift hospitals announced by the state government haven’t seen light of day. IGMC is the largest medical facility of the state and COVID-19 patients in critical condition were referred here.  

The situation could worsen due to the ongoing festive and wedding season. Markets are crowded and people are hardly following social distancing norms in marriages.

Further, yesterday seven people including a 16-year-old girl lost their lives. The decision to open schools seems to be backfiring as hundreds of teachers and several students were found positive for COVID-19 during the past few days. There are speculations that the state government could decide on closing schools for some time in the Cabinet meeting to be held today.

Details regarding the causes of fatalities below:
