Shimla, August 4

Governor Bandaru Dattatreya and Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur paid floral tribute to the founder and first Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh Dr YS Parmar on his birth anniversary on his statue at The Ridge, today.

On the occasion, the Governor said that Dr Parmar was not only a politician but also a man of stature whose life was based on values.

He was familiar with tough geographical conditions of the hilly region and, as a Chief Minister, he paved the way of development in Himachal Pradesh by paying more attention to agriculture and horticulture sector.

The greatness of Dr Parmar was his simplicity. When he left the CM post, he left the government vehicle and used a public transport to his village.

He said that the people should take inspiration from life and works of Dr Parmar and progress of backward areas would be a true tribute to him.

BJP state president Suresh Kashyap said that Dr Parmar, who laid the foundation of development of Himachal, was “Sarv Gun Sampan”.
