According to the government, after taking health benefits from these parks, it will prove to be a boon for senior citizens to live a healthy and happy life. Apart from this, the state government is working hard to provide maximum facilities to the people of the state, especially senior citizens and the Panchavati scheme is a major step in this direction.
The spread of the Kovid-19 epidemic has forced policymakers to rethink and reform the government’s policies and programs, with a particular focus on rural development. About 90% of the population of Himachal Pradesh lives in rural areas and hence the government is focusing on rural-oriented policies which will ensure a rapid pace of development in these areas.
The Chief Minister directed that the machinery should use the latest technologies to publicize various development plans and success stories. In addition, developmental facilities should be brought out and provided to both print and electronic media.
