Sharma said fairs celebrated in Mandi district and other parts of the state were based on the divine culture of Himachal Pradesh. These fairs helped in connecting people to each other, he added.

He said keeping in mind the ancient rich culture associated with various fairs and combining it with modernity, organising such events was a big step towards building modern society. On this occasion, Sharma inspected the Systematic Voter Education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP) programme stall, signing the SVEEP signature board. The stall has been set up to ensure 100 per cent voter participation in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In his address, he underscored the importance of the target of a complete voter participation.

He also called upon the gathering to donate blood at the blood donation camp set to be held during the fair on May 14.

Selfie points were put up and signature campaigns were conducted for voters during the fair.

On this occasion, the Karsog Subdivisional Officer felicitated the chief guest by presenting him a shawl, cap and memento.

Tehsildar Kailash Kaundal, Block Development Officer Vaishali Sharma, naib-tehsildar Shanta Shukla, heads and senior officers of various departments were among those present at the event.
