Dehradun Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, in a video conference with around 2500 students across the state on Wednesday claimed that one major achievement of his government is zero tolerance against corruption.

The interaction that lasted for two hours witnessed enthusiasm among students from the government schools. Rawat was left awestruck when students bombarded him with questions on pressing issues.

Chandrasekhar Gusain a student from Bageshwar said, “Why is my region facing lack of infrastructural facilities despite official records suggesting that the average per capita income in Uttarakhand is higher than the national average,” to which Rawat replied that the disparity between geographical locations is to be blamed for the gap.

“There is a big gap between Bageshwar and Rudrapur. I have asked officials to specifically focus on every single district so that every district shares the fruits of the growth,” said Rawat.

Another student from a government school in Dehradun asked the chief minister to highlight one of the major achievements in his nearly five month old government to which Rawat replied that it was his policy to deal with corruption with an iron fist that he considers one of the main features.

“I have maintained zero tolerance against the corruption. The Narendra Modi government at the centre has completed three years in the office and has been unblemished as far as corruption is concerned,” said Rawat.

Yogesh Nautiyal, a student from Uttarkashi, asked if there was any solution to check distress migration from the hill districts.

Rawat said the government is working on exploring modern patterns in agriculture that could be replicated in the hills. This could provide better options and check migration.
