Uttarakhand may get some big gifts in the coming days due to the visit of Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat to Delhi, who is going to complete his three-month term on June 10. The way he met ministers of important ministries and sought help for the state during his stay in Delhi has raised this hope. His visit is also being considered important for the upcoming assembly elections because the BJP will get the benefit of the gifts from the Center in the assembly elections. Not only has this but under the constitutional obligation to become a member of the state assembly, the Chief Minister had to contest the election to become an MLA.
After the change of leadership in the BJP government of the state, on March 10, Garhwal MP Tirath Singh Rawat took over as the Chief Minister. Along with proving himself, he also has the challenge of the state assembly elections to be held after seven-eight months. Therefore, it is necessary to accelerate the development of the state in the adverse circumstances arising due of the Corona crisis. Some big schemes from the central government will surely give a big boost to this.
The Chief Minister has focused on this and it is being reflected during his two-day visit in Delhi. Whether it is about the development of the marginal areas of the state or small hydropower projects or the demand for the establishment of AIIMS and Kotdwar medical college in Kumaon division to expand the health services, he put all these issues before the Union Ministers and the Center Assurance of affirmative action was also received from them. This has given hope to the state to get some new schemes.
Although the Chief Minister's visit to Delhi was also being linked to the distribution of responsibilities but he could not manage to meet other office bearers including National President JP Nadda in this regard. Responsibilities are to be distributed among various corporations and authorities in the state. Now that there is less for the assembly elections, there is a search for such a formula, so that the responsibilities of the party leaders can be divided and there should be no voice of protest. In this context, the Chief Minister's talks with the central leadership of the party were to be held. It is believed that in the next few days, the Chief Minister will decide in this regard after consultation with the central leadership.
