Since inception, Uttarakhand has witnessed many changes as far as political power is concerned.Bhagat Singh Kosyari of BJP to Narayan Dutt Tewari of congress to present chief minister B.C.Khanduri with every election mood of voters seems to be changing. Recently concluded Loksabha election was no different. While there is a BJP government in State all the five loksabha seats went to Congress. After the election debacle the ever continuing fight inside BJP between former CM Bhagat Singh Kosyari and current CM B.C.Khanduri came into light once again. Former claimed the support of more MLA and Khanduri offered his resignation. Two member committee from the BJP headquarters reached Dehradun to deliberate with the legislators on the future of Uttarakhand Chief Minister BC Khanduri. There was large scale lobbying in both the camps led by Khanduri and his bete-noire Bhagat Singh Koshiyari.
The two member committee comprising Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Thevar Chand Gehlot reached Dehradun and they had a marathon meeting with the 34 legislators talking to them on one to on one basis regarding the issue pertaining to a change in the leadership and the successor of Khanduri.
The present Chief Minister Lt. Col. BC Khanduri is a retired Army officer and regarded very highly in the region. Since taking the reins from Congress’ Narayan Dutt Tiwari in 2007, Khanduri has made for himself and the party a very strong and clean political ground. By making efforts to bring in transparency in his work and touring state districts to connect to people, he has put the BJP in positive framework. Rolling out Tata Nano from Uttarakhand’s Pantnagar plant has been a big achievement for the Khanduri government.In spite of all this there was complete loss for BJP in this election. Now it seems BJP top brass has agreed to keep him as a CM,at least for the time being.
As reported in news that Khanduri has started focussing on development now.
Sending a clear message that he was in complete command of the state administration, Uttarakhand Chief Minister B C Khanduri held a day-long review meeting on Wednesday with the officials of the various districts as well as the top brass of the state administration.
“We have been focusing on the development of the state and its people. It would not be wrong to say that over the last two years our hands were tied by repeated implementation of the election model code of conduct owing to a series of bypolls and other elections. Now, we want to get back on track towards implementing development oriented schemes,” said a visibly-confident Khanduri.
He asserted that his focus was on ensuring cohesion between the district-level officials and state government to ensure that the beneficiaries of various schemes faced no problems in getting their due.
It’s a good sign. Political stability is important to attract the investment for business. In a business chamber report ‘Investment Prospects in Indian Economy 2008-09′ released in Delhi on Wednesday by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Assocham), said Uttarakhand, which attracted investments worth Rs.36,059 crore, came third. Rajasthan and Haryana being number one and number two respectively. In Uttarakhand, energy sector attracted largest investments at Rs.30,300 crore.Hope we have political stability so that more investment can come to Uttarakhand.
