He said that after the unfortunate Corona period, once again the state’s GDP is back on track and now touching new heights. He reminded that Uttarakhand was second in the country in low unemployment rate, while the per capita income of the state has reached Rs 2.65 lakhs. The road, rail and air connectivity is also improving rapidly. Along with this, Uttarakhand is continuously moving forward by connecting Kedarnath, Hemkund, etc., with the construction of ropeways.
