Central University should be set up at Kumoun region of Uttarakhand as there is only one central University but in Andhra Pradesh 3, Delhi & UP 4, Assam & Manipur 2 have Central Universities.

Inspite of Char Dham, there is a lot of possibilities of tourism at different places. They should be developed like four Dhams and should have Dharamshala, Dormitory, toilets, kitchen etc i.e. LatuDevta of Chamoli Distt, Ghantakaran Devta of Lostupatti, Devaprayag, Maa Chandrabadni of Tehri Distt, Danda Nagraja and Jwalpa of Pauri Distt and Kalimath or Kartikay Swami of Ruadraprayag Distt. There is lot of possibilities of water sports. They should be identified and developed for tourism and sports in the state.

From Kumoun Region to Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand has to go through UP state. If Kandi Road is constructed rapidly, then in the Uttarakhand state from Kumoun to Dehradun and vise versa will save both time and money. It has come to my knowledge that govt. has given its consent and we welcome it. On this way, 1Km part of forest reserve Jim Corbett Park covers but it over bridge is constructed then transport from over the bridge and wild animals will go under the bridge and distance from capital will be lesser.

Revenue in crores is lost in lack of permission of mining in Kosi, Dabka. An illegal mining mafia is developing and labours are at the brink of dying from hunger. In April 6, 2011 mining was permitted in the rivers of Kosi, Dabka, Gola and Sharda.The forest village of Kalagarh region should be converted in Revenue villages.
