    Capital issue of uttarakhand

    I think it was an absurd idea of new capital for Uttrakhand except than Dehradun .Peple who agitated for Uttrakhand state put one of the demands that they would have a place as capital which would be acceptable to both Kumaoan and Garhwal region it was like that they were treating themselves not as people but two merging countries. East and West Germany merged they didnot have any reservations for capital despite ideological differences. Uttrakhnand is unique in this sense where issue of captial is still burning however everybody knows that shifting capital from Dehradun to anywhere in the hills will not be pragmatic in any way. Thousands of crors of ruppees will be needed to set up a new captial among the hill the juncture of two mandals but what is the guarrentee that remote areas of Uttrakhand hill will be developed itself. They should have concensus on the issue of capital and shifting it from elsewhere Dehradun will be a financial burden on it where revenue crunch is already the money they think to use on a new capital should be used in the development of farflung areas of state where there is no school, hospital,or other ameneties are short. Life standard of the people must be emancipated.

    The Uttarakhand Sanyukt Sangharsh Morcha has decided to gherao the Uttaranchal Vidhan Sabha on to press its demand for establishment of the State's permanent Capital at Gairsen in Chamoli district. I think such a move will be a burden for this small state. At present Dehradun is the best capital and it must be continued.

    It should be noted that alarge number of big business houses including banks have opened shop here and it will be difficult to take them to a new place. The govt has left the decision on the issue to the Virendra Dixit Commission set up to suggest a Capital for the State.

    I think Dehradun is best,just because it is developed now and having many facilities.And if we are thinking about Gersain than it will be a big deal of developing such facilities there.Even at this time when ministers are not too much interested and busy in themselves.
