As part of celebrations to mark Himachal Pradesh’s 50th statehood day, the state government has come up with a unique idea. It is planning to organise a “Run For Himachal”, from Rajghat to Himachal Bhawan in New Delhi, on December 5, in collaboration with the state’s residents living in the National Capital Region. It is learnt that BJP national president J P Nadda, who is from Himachal Pradesh, will flag off the run. Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur and Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur will also participate.

Now, Science and Technology Minister Jitendra Singh has said the ministry will begin the process of identifying 75 women scientists who have made exceptional contributions to science, and 75 scientists above the age of 75 years who continue to contribute to the science ecosystem with their work.
