A media delegation from Assam on "Good Will Mission" called on the Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur at his official residence Oak Over today. The delegation is on a week-long visit to Himachal Pradesh.

Welcoming the delegation, the Chief Minister said that although a small state, Himachal Pradesh has emerged as a role model of development for big states of the country. He said the nature has blessed the state with varied climatic conditions, salubrious and pollution-free environment, besides enchanting scenic beauty making it a favoured destination for the tourists.

He said the state government has started Nai Rahein Nai Manzilien scheme for developing the lesser known and virgin tourist destinations of the state. Janjehli in Mandi district, Chanshal in Shimla district and Bir Billing and Pong Dam in Kangra district are being developed as new tourist destinations.

Jai Ram Thakur said that in its first budget, the state government announced 30 new schemes. All of them have been implemented. The Jan Manch programme launched by the state government has emerged as a boon to the people for redress of their grievances close to their homes. More than 40,000 grievances have been received in these Jan Manch and most of them have been redressed.

The delegation handed over a letter of the Chief Minister of Assam Sarbananda Sonowal to Jai Ram Thakur. The Chief Minister thanked his Assam counterpart and invited him to visit Himachal Pradesh.

Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Sanjay Kundu gave a glimpse of Himachal Pradesh to the delegation. He said that the state was making rapid progress in every sphere of development under the leadership of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur.
