Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Saturday said the state will be made a leading state in tourism by 2027.

The chief minister said at a programme in Dehradun that infrastructure in tourism and power sectors will be strengthened while the ongoing road and rail projects will gain a big momentum to make Uttarakhand a leading state in tourism.

Dhami said that during his recent visit to Delhi he had discussed with the Union Railway and IT Minister how to extend Internet connectivity to around 6,000 villages of the state and how to speed up work on the Rishikesh-Karnaprayag rail link project which is already underway.

The chief minister said he had also brought up the issue of expediting the survey of the Tanakpur-Bageshwar broad gauge rail line during his meeting with the Union minister.

He reiterated that the Kanwar yatra has been suspended in Uttarakhand in view of Covid as saving the lives of people is the state government's top priority. He said 100 per cent vaccination will be done in the state in the next three to four months.
