Himachalis have elected the BJP government with two third majority. However masses will also have to fulfill their duties that can help the government functioning. Every citizen is playing a role in the service of the state; be it a daily wager, farmer, horticulturist, businessman or employees. Himachal wil progress tremendously if every section plays its role earnestly. The government will play its role in framing policies for the welfare of the society but best results could only be achieved through people’s participation in implementation of these schemes. Progress and propsperity can be achieved through people’s particpation in administration and good governance.
