Dehradun, January 15
On a day when Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna and Assembly Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal laid the foundation stone of a new Assembly building at Gairsain, workers of the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (Panwar) held a ‘buddhi shuddhi’ yajna here yesterday in support of their demand for the permanent capital status for Gairsain.

The party workers alleged that the state government was befooling people and playing with the sentiments of the statehood agitators. They said even after 12 years of the creation of Uttarakhand, all successive state governments had failed to have a permanent capital of the state.
They said while the Chief Minister and the Speaker laid the foundation stone of the Assembly building at Gairsain, another Assembly building would come up in Dehradun. They criticised the state government for its stand on permanent residents of the state. Party spokesmen Virender Mohan Uttarakhandi, Pramila Rawat and Latafat Hussain and other senior leaders were also present on the occasion.
