Will bring big projects to state

I am committed to working for the development of Himachal and bringing big projects to the state. I will continue to work for it now as a Cabinet minister in the Union Government. — Anurag Thakur, Union Minister

While addressing a press conference here today, he said that there was no political party at the national level that can challenge the Modi-led government.

Anurag said he was committed to the expansion of Gaggal airport as it was the most viable airport project in the state.

About providing rail link to Hamirpur, Anurag said unfortunately the state government could not provide support to project due to financial restraints. "I am committed to working for the development of Himachal and bringing big projects to the state. I will continue to work for it now as a Cabinet minister in the Union Government."

During his stay in Dharamsala, Anurag met various party leaders and ministers and took feedback regarding various projects of union government going on in Kangra district.

In Circuit House where the union minister stayed overnight many BJP leaders from Kangra came and met him in person. In the morning also many constituency level leaders exhibited show of strength in front of the Union Minister.

Anurag said the Central University Himachal Pradesh (CUHP) campus that would soon start coming up in Dehra would benefit the economy of the area and generate direct and indirect jobs for the youth. The union ministry of sports would bring up a sports complex in CUHP campus at Dehra, he said.
