Providing quality health services to the people of the state nearer to their homes was the main objective of the state government said Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur after inaugurating the free multi-specialty health camp organized by the State Health and Family Welfare Department at Chamiyana near Shimla on Monday. He announced opening up of a primary health center in the Chamiyana panchayat and setting up of a cold store in the panchayat for floriculture and off-seasonal vegetables. The Chief Minister said the Jan Manch had been started with an objective to redress the grievances of the people nearer to their homes. The Himachal Pradesh Grihani Suvidha Yojana had been launched to provide gas connection with cylinder and stove to every household.
He said the state government had succeeded in getting approval for developmental projects worth ₹6000 crore from the Center, which was a record in itself. The state government was committed to making the state a favorite tourist destination of the country and special thrust would be laid on exploring lesser known tourist places, he added. Thakur said the nation was celebrating the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wished him a good health and long life. The Chief Minister provided free gas connections to the beneficiaries of the Himachal Pradesh Grihani Suvidha Yojana and also participated in the Swachhata Abhiyan organized on the occasion. – Tribune India
