Significantly, the Minister began his speech in the local language.
The Finance Minister claimed that the state is moving towards good governance. Under the G-20 Summit, there would be three seminars held in Uttarakhand, which would be a matter of pride. Aggarwal claimed that the government is running e-cabinet, e-office, CM helplines. A corruption free app is also active. He said that injustice would not be done to the state’s young talent.
