The Uttarakhand Chief Minister, Mr. Trivendra Singh Rawat, has announced in the state Assembly that Gairsain in Chamoli district will be the summer capital of the state.
Media reports suggest that the big announcement had come after Karnprayag MLA Surendra Singh Negi's recent meeting with the Chief Minister. Mr. Singh had demanded that Garasaina as the summer capital of Uttarakhand.
In addition, it was also BJP's election resolution to make Garasain (Bharadisain) the summer capital.
Media reports also suggest that the issue of making the Charmoli district the summer capital has, for a long time, been connected to the sentiments of the local public.
It has also been said that Garrison has been considered the symbol of the capital of people's aspirations, which is also why the governments of the Congress and the BJP could not evade the topic.
