The only union state minister from Uttarakhand in the central cabinet in the capacity as the minister of state for textiles, a forty five year old young, dashing and soft spoken politician who had in the past represented two ministries in the then Major General B C Khanduri’s cabinet in Uttarakhand is today a blue eyed boy of both the Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi and the national party chief Amit Shah.

Though he is the state minister of textiles but had been accorded the special privilige in the recent past to accompany the president of India Ram Nath Kovind as well, while he was on the very first significant visit to the two African countries viz Djiboti and Ethiopia. Not only this but Tamta was also accorded the special privilege of representing India in welcoming the special dignitary, the Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen who is the chief gest in the Republic Day celebrations of India on 26th January. It’s indeed a great honour for Uttarakhand in particular to see the only union minister representing the state at the centre to have been given such important assignments twice, one when he accompanied the Indiaa president on his first foreign visit to two African nations as an important member minister of the President’s entourage and secondly representing our nation to receive the Cambodian PM visiting India as the chief guest of the pivotal, Indian Republic day function. A soft spoken, well read, articulate and ambivalent Ajay Tamta has been genuinely involved in his textile ministerial accomplishments and strengthening the party organisation in Uttarakhand too having played a highly contributory role in the party’s victory in the Uttarakhand elections held nine months ago, as well thus defeating the then ruling party Congress, hands down.

He had also been instrumental in actively devising ways and means for the development and implementation of various people friendly schemes in Uttarakhand. He has recently convened the meeting of all the senior bureaucrats of Uttarakhand cadre working in various states, in Uttarakhand and Delhi at his official residence and discussed ways and means to expedite development in the18 year old state of Uttarakhand.

The meeting was chaired by the OSD to the Indian Prime minister namelyMr. Khulbe, who also happened to be from Uttarakhand. Extremely mobile and active in Uttarakhand as well, Ajay Tamta is likely to open a production centre of handloom, fine clothing and paper like bags from the pine needles for generating local employment for women and youth of the himalayan state. He is actively involved on the job and is desirous of implementing this venture on the large scale and expeditously . Let’s wish him all the very best in all his future endeavors.



A trend is gaining ground in Uttarakhand that its politicians at the helm of affairs like the chief minister and minister at the centre hailing from Uttarakhand are now endeavoring to seek the knowledge and expertise support from the Uttarakhand origin bureaucrats and senior officers working at the centre and in the states so as to ensure their active participation in the development of the 17 year old state.

Though the general perception about the people, intellectuals and media of Uttarakhand is that the state has despite witnessing development has failed on several fronts thus not able to deliver during the last more than one and a half decade. However, despite a whopping fiscal deficit of about 42 thousand crores and migration of 32 lakh people in the absense of the decentralised socio economic development a recent report of the Niti Ayog etc has painted a very rosy picture of the state recognising it touching develoomental heights on various fronts including the per capita income going to 1 lakh 42 thousand quite ahead of many developed states.

However, the report despite having been claimed as extremely authentic could not prove successful in convincing the general masses of the grass roots who are still devoid of good education, basic health facilities, agricultural upgradation and employment avenues. On several other fronts like industrial and agricultural development the state still lacks behind despite the rosy pictures of the central agency’s report. There had been voices raised time and again that the successive governments have never taken the experts, specialists, scientists, bureaucrats and technological hands of Uttarakhand working elsewhere to shape the destiny of the Himalayan state.

As such now a trend is on the move under which the state chief minister, MPs anf minister at the centre from Uttarakhand are calling meetings of such personalities and seriously deliberating on variius aspects of the develooment of the hill state. Recently two weeks ago the state chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has convened an ostentacious even at his official residence in Dehradun in which several luminiaries like PM’s Secretary Mr. Khulbe, Chairman Railway Board Ashwani Lohani, Coast Guard Chief Rajendra Singh, the Chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification Punya Prasun Joshi, the India Army Chief General Vipin Rawat and several other senior bureaucrats participated and addressed the august gathering accquainting them of their pivotal views and suggestions as to how could the 17 year old state prosper economically and migration from villages to cities stopped forthwith.

Similarly, today the union minister of state for textiles Ajay Tamta and the former Chief minister of Uttarakhand Bhagat Singh Koshiyari convened a meeting of the senior bureaucrats and experts at his official residence 1, Jantar Mantar Road and deliberated upon various burning issues of significance pertaining to Uttarakhand’s development. The Secretary to Prime Minister Modi Bhaskar Khulbe presided over the meet. The meeting which laster for more than two hours deliberated in depth and resolved to meet repeatedly with more participation of senior officers, experts of various fields and bureaucrats whose valuable suggestions and inputs can help in the over all development of the state and improving the lot of the people through socio economic, agricultural, industrial development and providing employment to the educated and illeterate youth including improvisibg the lot of women who is the most suffering section of the society. While the initiatives of UK CM Trivendra Rawat , union minister Ajay Tamta and member of Parliament Ajay Tamta deserves to be lauded and complimented but it still remains to be seen whether such parleys and interactions really accompany fruits of development and employment generation to the Himalayan state or just used to derive political benefit for their governments at the centre and the state.

However, let’s hope for the best and be positive to foresee constructive credible outcomes of such moves. RAIBAAR though a great event was criticized by the media of Uttarakhand terming it as an ostantacious show organised to derive merely political advantage for the party and the government as bureaucrats in the ruling party at the centre were called and prominent social, sr journalists, thinkers, social scientists and environmentalists of repute having diverse but healthy views on the subject that dosen’t suit the state government were pre strategically left out revealed the sources. What do you say friends?




The union state minister of Textiles Ajay Tamta today visited Max Hospital in New Delhi and met the ailing leader in Intensive Care Unit and thereafter his family to know about the former 4 and one time chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand including the union minister of Industry at the centre. Ajay Tamta went to Max this afternoon.

Tamta said that the ninety year old Narain Dutt Tiwari is in ICU and is gradually recovering from chest and lung congestion leading to respiratory disorder. According to the doctors he is recuperating and the signs are positive. Tamta said Tiwari is a political stalwart of the country and Uttarakhand and has contributed tremendously in the all round development of Uttar Pradesh as well as Uttarakhand though his own party’s detractors had unsuccessfully tried their level best to create umpteen bottlenecks on his ways to develop the state of Uttarakhand. Rating Narain Dutt Tiwari as the leader of the stature of Late Govind Ballabh Pant, Late Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna, Khusi Ram and Tamta, union state minister of Textiles, Ajay Tamta said that the constructive n positive contribution of Narain Dutt Tiwari in the development of the nation, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand can’ t be ruled out.

He is in true sense the father figure of the 17 year old state whose selfless contribution to Uttarakhand willalways be remembered. Ajay Tamta after meeting ND Tiwari deliberated with his wife Ujwala and son Rohit and wished for the speedy veeran leader of the country.

It may be recalled that the 90 year old former union minister and chief minister of UP and UK was admitted in MAX hospital Delhi and put on re sustication in ICU  after he complained of extreme dizzyness and chest congestion about two weeks ago and just yesterday a rumour floated in social media about his being no more but contradicted later on by his family.
