Reiterating on the need to generate more internal revenue, Mr Chamling said: “Hydro-power generation, promotion of eco-tourism, setting up of clean industries like pharmaceutical units have been identified as core sectors to strengthen our revenue base on a long term basis.” He further urged the people to adopt austerity measures both in their offices and rationalize needs and wants.

A 575-bed super specialty hospital would be built in the state to provide medical facilities to the people. The free vaccination of Hepatitis ‘B’ earlier given to children below one year would now be expanded to all children below five years.

A package of medical and health care measures to take care of women and children in distress including the poor and needy and the old and the physically disadvantaged would also be provided under the Mukhya Mantri Jeewan Raksha Kosh, announced Mr Chamling.
