The state government would organise the Swarnim Himachal Rath Yatra from October 2 to commemorate the golden jubilee year of statehood, said Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur while presiding over a high-powered committee meeting here today.

He said that the rath yatra would celebrate the contributions of common people in these 50 years of the glorious journey of the state. Various government departments would organise 51 events across the state. He added that the rath yatra would cover almost all constituencies of the state in over two months and a mega event would be held on January 25, 2022, to commemorate Statehood Day.

Thakur said that the government had constituted an executive committee under the chairmanship of MLA Rajeev Bindal for the successful organisation of the event. Besides, four sub-committees, namely Swarnim Rath Procurement Committee, IEC Committee, Social Media Committee and the Budgetary Committee, had been constituted. He added that the government had thought of organising the rath yatra from January 25 this year but postponed it due to the pandemic.

He said that the developmental history of the state would be showcased. He added that the active participation of achievers in different fields such as sports, social work, culture, and literature would also be ensured.

The CM said that the rath would have latest equipment for a live audio-visual coverage on the developmental history of the state.
