association, Anup Ram Thakur, said chief minister has assured that flight service to Himachal would be
resumed soon and he would discuss with centre the plan to lay rail line up to
Sundernagar (Mandi). “We had a detailed discussion on bad conditions of
highways. Parking, byepass road, traffic jams are another problems that we are
