  • Himachal needs to focus more on forest area so that in long run it is good for climate and can control growing pollution and good for farming as well.
    All the barren land should be converted to forests by growing more and more trees.
    Thanks to the law which prevents people from other states to invest in Himcahal otherwise we would have seen rise of crony capitalism in this state as well where farmers are just doing the job of security guards on their own land and struggling for their survival.
