Shimla, September 24

Union Minister of Commerce and Industry and Textiles Piyush Goyal today arrived at Shimla on the three-day tour of the state. He was welcomed by state BJP chief Suresh Kashyap along with other office-bearers of the BJP at Annadale.

Addressing the Sewa Aur Samarpan Abhiyan at Totu-Jutoghin on the outskirts of Shimla, he appreciated the Himachal Pradesh Government for becoming the first state in the country to provide cent-percent the first dose of Covid-19 vaccination to the eligible age groups besides ensuring food safety to the targeted groups.

The Union minister said the state government had made tremendous progress in all spheres of development during the last 50 years after attaining statehood. He said that the state had not only emerged as a role model for hill states of the country but also shown a path to other big states.

While congratulating the CM and people of the state on the golden jubilee year of statehood, Goyal said that the state during about four years has achieved a number of milestones. Piyush Goyal visited Kali Bari temple along with his family members.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, while welcoming the Union minister, said that the Sewa Aur Samarpan Abhiyan was being launched throughout the country to celebrate two decades of Prime Minister in public service. He said the birthday of the Prime Minister on September 17 was celebrated as Sewa Divas throughout the country and various welfare activities were being organized to mark the occasion.

Thakur said the Centre had provided wholehearted support to effectively tackle the pandemic. The state, after achieving the cent-percent target of the first dose of vaccination, was now striving hard to become the first state in the country to achieve 100 per cent vaccination by the end of November. Till date, the state had achieved a target of about 46 per cent second dose vaccination, he added.

The Union Minister and CM also visited the vaccination centre Totu and interacted with the doctors, paramedical staff and the people who came for vaccination.
