Shimla, November 6

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Tuesday said the Seraj area would be developed as an ideal assembly constituency of the state.

A tourist culture centre worth Rs 27 crore would be set up at Deemkataroo that would give a boost to tourism development in the state, he added.

Addressing a gathering during the Seraj Mandal Milan programme here, the Chief Minister claimed that the 10-month tenure of the state government had been full of achievements and the government had also succeeded in getting development projects worth Rs 9,000 crore sanctioned from the Union Government.

He said the Centre had provided all possible help to the state during the recent untimely snowfall in Lahaul-Spiti, where hundreds of stranded people were airlifted by seven helicopters provided by the Centre.

Thakur said the mandal milan programme would be organised regularly so as to ensure better coordination and understanding between the state government and the party.

Regular meetings would be held with various frontal organisations of the party such as the Kisan Morcha, the Yuva Morcha, the Mahila Morcha, the SC Morcha and Minority Morcha, he added.

The Chief Minister said the BDO office sanctioned at Balichowki would go a long way in fulfilling the long- pending demand of the people of the area. Thakur said he would lay the foundation stone of the Combined office (Mini-Secretariat) building at Thunag.

Work on the construction of a degree college at Thachi would be started soon, he added.

Thakur said the state government was laying special focus on the development of the Seraj area.

He said during his recent visit to the Jhenjheli area, he had laid the foundation stones of development projects worth Rs 55 crore.

Thakur said Rs 41 crore had been sanctioned for the Balichowki area for providing water supply scheme and a bus stand would also be constructed at Janjehli in the future.

Efforts would be made to construct a helipad at Janjehli soon, he said.
