He denied having discussed the Uniform Civil Code with the Prime Minister, claiming that the Prime Minister’s intention is to adopt it in the country.
Mr Dhami stated that the state will implement a common code shortly, but not in haste. Mr Dhami said he discussed the hill state’s many infrastructure and development initiatives with the PM, and he also invited the PM to be the keynote speaker at the upcoming global investors summit, which is scheduled to take place in Dehradun in December.
They also talked about other things, including assistance for the people affected in Joshimath, and Char Dham Yatra.
Mr Dhami also sought authorisation from the Centre for the Kiccha-Khatima railway station project, requesting that the anticipated total cost of 1,546 crore be borne by the Centre.
He also requested approval for a proposal to relocate Dehradun’s main railway station to the newly refurbished Harrawala station.
On Monday night, Mr Dhami met with Home Minister Amit Shah.
In response to his meeting with the Union minister, he stated that they addressed the Char Dham yatra, the state’s law and order situation, and the state’s preparedness for natural calamities as the monsoon season approaches.
