Govt to hold Cabinet meeting at Gairsain on Oct 2

Dehradun, June 5
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Indira Hriyadesh today evaded giving a commitment in the House on the creation of permanent capital at Gairsain by the Bahuguna government, instead she said bowing to the demands of the people, the government had decided to hold a cabinet meeting in Gairsain on October 2 this year.

While replying to a question posed by BJP MLA Ajay Tamta who wanted to know if the government was seriously deliberating on the capital issue and why the government was unnecessarily playing with the feelings of the people by deciding to hold a Cabinet meeting in Gairsain, the minister said: “The government had constituted the Dikshit Commission to decide on the capital for Uttarakhand. The four volume reports of the commission have already been tabled in the House on July 2009. Beyond this I cannot comment beforehand,” said the minister.
On being repeatedly asked by BJP MLAs whether the government would declare Gairsain as a summer, a temporary or a permanent capital, the minister said if such a decision had to be taken, it would come during and after the Cabinet meeting at Gairsain. We will be allocating separate budget, if construction work has to be started in Gairsain in view of the Cabinet meeting,” she said.
