UK govt unveils it road through Governor’s address


The Governor Dr K K Paul in his maiden address on Friday to the fourth elected Assembly of the  state  that marked the commencement  of  the first session of the newly elected House has unveiled the     BJP -helmed  government’s  vision of the state while announcing several things, including the re-introduction of Lokayukta Act-2011, Transfer Act-2011 and Right to Service Act-2011. Besides, the Governor mentioned the state government’s commitment to make Gairsain the summer capital of the state. The state government also vowed to stop migration from the hills to the plains, assuring   to provide more avenues of employment aside from revamping agriculture. By  way of  paying tribute to the martyrs for the cause of  Uttarakhand as a state and to the statehood activists who sacrificed a lot when the movement  was on, the state government would build a   giant museum.

The address has made it clear that Trivendra Singh Rawat government is committed to rising to the soaring expectations of the people for a responsive government, determined to fulfill the long-pending demands of the appointment of Lokayukta and a transparent transfer policy aside from the emotive capital transfer demand. Interestingly, the Congress members now in the opposition have chosen to be silent when the Governor unfolded the developmental vision of the new state government.

Observers say that the Governor’s address stressing on eliminating corruption flourishing in the form of doing favours in the maters of transfers and postings has made it clear that such favoritism being showered in lieu of wads of money is a thing of the past.

Besides, the Governor’s address laid emphasis on the education policy being reviewed and revised by the new state government with girls’ hostel in each of the districts being opened. Besides, the state government would prepare syllabus with stress on imparting quality education to enable the students to take on the mounting challenges coming in the fast-changing education arena.   The state government   has also vowed to stop commercialization of education and stamp out corruption in the realm education. The   state government has again pitched for  promoting research on Sanskrit, Vastu science, astrology and  the like.

Another sector that has found prominent mention in the speech is    health. The state government has committed itself through the Governor’s speech to open Pt Deen Dayal hospitals in each of the districts and also to distribute free medicines among the economically unprivileged section of the society.
