Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur on Tuesday took stock of the arrangements for the All-India Chief Secretaries Conference, scheduled to be organized on the 16th and 17th of this month at Dharamshala, which is likely to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Chief Minister inspected the arrangements and took stock of the progress. He directed the district administration and authorities concerned to complete the arrangements in all respects well in time. He also visited Central University campus and Circuit House.
Earlier, on his arrival at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) ground, he spoke to the media and termed it a matter of pride for the state that within a period of a week, President of India Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are visiting Himachal Pradesh.
MP and State BJP President Suresh Kashyap, State BJP Organising Secretary Pawan Rana and State BJP General Secretary Trilok Kapoor were also present on the occasion among others.
"Honorable President Ram Nath Kovind ji and Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji are visiting Dharamshala in Devbhoomi Himachal. In view of this, today visited HPCA Stadium, the venue of the proposed All India Chief Secretary conference in Dharamsala on 16th and 17th June," Thakur tweeted in Hindi.
