Corruption is the biggest hurdle in development and the government is working on a plan to make the state graft free, said chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Saturday in Haldwani.

Rawat was holding a meeting of the ‘Purnkalik Vistarak’ of all constituencies of Uttarakhand.

He said 90% of the corruption would be controlled within 5 years of the BJP’s rule with support of public.

The state government was helping the farmers by providing them loan at 2% interest, he said while appealing the farmers to avail of the benefit and make their profit double.

He also said a transparent policy pertaining to transfers of government officials have also been formulated by the government.

Ministers will be available at their respective districts on Fridays/Saturdays to listen to the grievances of people, he announced.

Rawat said in order to provide good health service to the citizens, his government would provide doctors in all the hospitals within a period of 3 months.

Twenty seven lakh families will be provided health insurance within a year, he said.

Besides, he said the hill state tops in the number of strikes. In the past one year, he said, 22,000 strikes were held in across the state.

The strikes ruin the development and the government plans on how to make the state strike-free.

‘Purnkalik Vistarak’ members from 61 constituencies shared their problems related to polling booths. Party state unit president Ajay Bhatt and state in-charge Shyam Jaju inaugurated the meeting.

The state unit chief and the state in-charge are also taking a brief of the organisation developments of past six months.

Bhatt told the media that this was the beauty of the party that all the representatives were given a collective leadership.

The motive of this meeting is that organisation work was done with a democratic manner and strengthen the organisation at the booth level, he said.
