Prez five-day visit to begin on Sept 16

Shimla, August 26

President Ram Nath Kovind will address a special session of the Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha to mark the golden jubilee year of statehood.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Vidhan Sabha Speaker Vipin Parmar said the President would address a special session of the Assembly here on September 17 at 11 am. He said the details of the programme were yet to be finalised. The President is scheduled to arrive here on a five-day tour on September 16.

"This will be the third occasion when the President will address the special session of the Assembly," he added. He said APJ Abdul Kalam had addressed the Himachal Assembly on December 23, 2004, and Pranab Mukherjee on May 24, 2013.

Parmar said the Chief Minister, ministers and legislators will be present at the special one-day session to mark the golden jubilee statehood anniversary. Himachal became a full-fledged state on January 25, 1971 and ever since the day is observed as the Statehood Day.

"During the function we would like to remember and pay tributes to all former chief ministers and others who made a contribution in helping Himachal surge ahead on the path of development," said Parmar. — TNS
