The action mode of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has also started to rein in the nefarious Iraqs of China on the country and Uttarakhand. CM Dhami has made an action plan to thwart any external aggression on Uttarakhand. Said that the help of youth and retired army personnel would be taken for surveillance and action in the international border areas of the state.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that the Uttarakhand government is going to start the ‘Him Prahari’ scheme at the Home Ministers’ Chintan Shivir organized in Surajkund, Haryana. Under this scheme, youth including 10 thousand retired soldiers, retired soldiers from paramilitary will be linked to the scheme.

CM Dhami said that Rs 5 crore would be spent per month for this, which CM Dhami has demanded from the central government.
Dhami presented a blueprint of Uttarakhand’s preparedness for internal security. Dhami said that the marginal villages are the first watchdogs of the country and it is the duty of the government to develop them properly. To stop migration from these areas, a campaign is going on to connect the local youth with the NCC.
The Center has also been requested to relax the inner line restrictions to increase tourism in the border areas. Dhami said that Uttarakhand shares difficult geographical conditions as well as borders with Tibet, China and Nepal. Therefore, the state gives topmost place to national security.
He said that an expert committee has been constituted to implement Uniform Civil Code in the state for smooth functioning of law and order. Residents of all religions in the state will be benefited by the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code. This will improve the condition of women especially.
Uttarakhand gets helicopters for disaster relief
The CM said that in many villages in Uttarakhand, even today the revenue police is looking after the work of regular police. But now the government has decided to give revenue police areas to regular police in a phased manner. The CM raised the demand for a one-time grant of Rs 750 crore to the state government for new police stations, police posts as well as residential facilities for police personnel. For women’s safety, an app is proposed to be made for the safety of women at the workplace. The CM also advocated for providing helicopters to SDRF from the level of the central government for relief and rescue in disaster.
Emphasis on infrastructure development in frontier
The Chief Minister said that in the last five-six years, about 600 km of construction is going on on 13 roads in Pithoragarh, Uttarkashi and Chamoli. Many important establishments and offices of the country are located in Uttarakhand, whose primary responsibility for security lies with the state government. Similarly, the state government is also responsible for the safety of domestic and foreign tourists visiting the state and crores of pilgrims visiting Chardham, Kanvad Yatra. For this also constant cooperation from the central government is needed.
