Jai Ram Thakur seeks setting up of National e-Vidhan Academy at Vidhan Sabha

Himachal Pradesh: Jai Ram Thakur, the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, requested clearance from the central government on Wednesday to construct the National e-Vidhan Academy in the HP Vidhan Sabha in Dharamshala.

Thakur, speaking at the All India Presiding Officers' Conference in Shimla, said that if the application for the establishment of the National e-Vidhan Academy is approved, the Tapovan premises of the HP Vidhan Sabha in Dharamshala will be fully utilised.  The meeting will be attended by 378 dignitaries, including Lok Sabha Speaker Om Prakash Birla, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh, and speakers and deputy speakers from 36 state assemblies and councils.

Thakur went on to say that only the state assembly's winter session is currently held in HP Vidhan Sabha in Dharamshala for roughly five to six days each year. If the National e-Vidhan Academy is constructed there, it will be used to its full potential, he added. Thakur further stated that since its inception, the state assembly has enacted a number of pro-public laws and policies. The state's economy was relatively weak at the time of its creation, but it is now fast increasing, he said, adding that Himachal Pradesh's per capita income has climbed from Rs 240 at the time of its inception to over Rs 1.95 lakh in 2020-21.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also gave a virtual address at the conference's opening session. The first conference of its kind was held in Shimla a century ago, in 1921.
