summer capital garsain

After a long struggle in Uttarakhand, Garsain (Bharadisain) finally got the status of capital. Garsain has become the summer capital of the state. On Monday, the government has issued an official order regarding this. On March 4, Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, after presenting the budget for the year 2020-21, finally announced the Garsain Summer Capital. During this, CM Rawat was also emotional.

The state of Uttarakhand finally got the capital of public sentiments. On March 4 this year, Garsain summer capital was announced and now orders have been issued on June 8, after which two capitals of Uttarakhand have been formed. When CM announced the Garsain capital, after that he said that after much thought and brainstorming, he took this decision. It is dedicated to the martyrs of the state movement, mother power, youth and agitators. This will help in achieving the goal of development until the last person in remote areas. It is expected that now the development of the mountainous regions will be emphasized with the formation of Garsain as its capital.

A look at the history

Actually, there is no demand today to make Garsain the capital. Rather, in the sixties, for the first time, there was a demand to make it a permanent capital. This demand was raised by Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali, the magnate of Peshawar. This was the reason that the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal named Chandrasnagar after the name of Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali at that time.

Demand was rising since UP

With the creation of a separate state Uttarakhand from UP, there was a demand to make its capital Garsain. State agitators and UKD also intensified the movement several times, after which their movement ended on November 9, 2000, and a separate state of Uttarakhand was created from Uttar Pradesh. However, again the capital of Uttarakhand became Dehradun (temporary), not Garsain. Movements started again with this and the state agitators raised the slogan ‘Pahadi Ho’, the capital of the hill state. Hence, Garsain was also known as the capital of public sentiments.
