Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Saturday presided over a meeting of the high-powered committee to celebrate 75 years of existence of the state in a befitting manner by organising 75 events across the state.
An official statement quoting Thakur said the events would be presided over by him and Union Ministers. He said the message must be clear that everyone has made their contribution in development and progress of the state in the past 75 years.
